Come on peeps, it's a cracking little car, nice and clean... runs well, and needs a good home... it's a bargain at the price!

Right now it's just sitting there not being used which is a big shame, get a bargain today!

Ahhh wow! a henly blue clubman :D We had one of those for a good couple 3 years, never missed a beat! Especially when we managed to get 85mph out of her in 4th!

Looks quite tidy!, thought about ebay? would make a great 1st car for someone :)

Looks a tidy little car!

I'm lookin for a first car at the moment but I aint got the money til end of month when I get my wage. Will you take some more photos of car for me please so can get a better idea? I'd come and have a look at it but you live miles away!

Mmmmm as it had the head gasket done ever? If so what mileage?

Cheers

as far as I know the head gasket hasn't been done... but hasn't needed it either, it's an A series engine and made of granite and supposedly almost impossible to blow up :lol:

I will vouch for the fact the the a series is impossible to blow up.
I too had a 998 metro and tried everything i could to kill the engine the night before i had a 1275 put in. I drove it at 33mph in first ( a shade over 7k rpm!) with the valves bouncing for over a minute, put it in first at 45mph many many times and it would just not die. This engine had well over 100k on it too.

Buy the car, brilliant first car and massive fun when your 17!

p.s free bump!
