£7500 for this monstrosity? I can't believe people are bidding on it at that price. It's got 48,000 miles and is an 02 plate fer christs sake?!

125 BHP? I don't think so, or maybe it's because of the super duper high performance spark plugs.
I bet the body kit alone has knocked 10 BHP off it because of wind resistance.

Group 8, great for young drivers? Yeh right.

lol i spotted this the other day. Shocking!!

I dont believe that anybody is actually going to pay that much for it. The bloke winning has 0 feedback so probably wants it posting to nigeria or something haha.

it's got all the door handles removed including boot so thats an instant MOT fail if I remember correctly ;)

and theres no way a modified 1.4 petrol engine will get 45-50mpg. but then its not if any insurance company will even consider it for a new driver...

I don't think that's a fail mate, why would it be? As long as the door has a mechanism to be opened from outside, such as a button to a solenoid then it shouldn't fail.

no mate, it's not a fail.

If there was a handle on it and it didn't work, then it's a fail. Because there is no handle it cannot fail. removing the handle from inside is a fail on the other hand.

how would the body kit knock 10bhp off it? also its very possible to get 125bhp out of it. maybe hes had the throats cleaned up or a port polish etc. btw i really hate that bodykit, especially the bonnet! and to think there is a puny little 1.4 powering it! ffs, send it to the scrappers.

Erm....what could we ask?

Ask if he would be willing to swap for a rover metro professionally coloured in burberry checks :)
wind resistance wouldt knock anything of the bhp just use more of it up.
just asked him if he has anyway of proving its got 125bhp.

That's not a spoiler, that's a mutant malformation.

funny thing is that it looks exactly like the car in this ad:


(the ad was taken from this same page)

no doubt he had a mate bid on it so that it sold for a higher price.

saves putting a reserve on and puttin people off - not that the reserve would do that - just look at the pics lol!

Its a Mynheer kit. You can bet it will fall off after the first pothole you hit! :lol:
It doesn't even have leather seats!! I disagree with the "best car for summer" comment, I think my little baby would be a lot better! :haha:
