It was a bit far gone, unfortunately didn't realise after alot of work had already been done, it ended up being unreliable to the point where I didn't trust it as a daily anymore

Sorry to hear that, it was always going to be a bit of a project hence the price, hope you got back what you spent on it?

What was the final straw with it then? Know it had a few issues but thought it might come back from the brink...

It ended up having a complete rear subframe and shock mounts, upper front control arms, shocks and spring all round, turbo, exhaust, had a host of coolant leaks and oil leaks but think there were deeper engine problems causing this, other small things then failed its MOT so was sold as a failure, sure someone will keep going with it but as I say kinda just lost faith in it

Not a problem mate these things happen, as I say we both knew it needed work but probably didn't realise the extent of the work it needed
