Is there? On here? I know there's the "another bargain" thread but that's meant to be sarcastic. Besides, I thought it was important/interesting/unusual enough to bring to the forum's attention in it's very own thread. Low miler D9 E going for a song? You lucky, lucky bas... Yeah, ok, it's automatic, some of us aren't afraid of them...

Oh yeah, I forgot it was supposed to be sarcastic, I know I've posted decent cars on that thread it's maybe lost its way a bit?

I have family in that Spain and I can tell you without doubt that unless a car is kept covered then the sun takes its toll on things very quickly. And the dust....the DUST :shock:

Still would though :cheesy:

Shame the auto exec's a semi-mux - I was thinking a certain remapped 2.2 HDi / ML6 combo would liven it up a little*. :supafrisk:

My Renault Twingo was imported from Portugal. It is a 1999 car with not a single sport of rust. It also hasn't got a single straight panel and I had to spend a weekend taking the entire interior out, roof lining, seats, carpets etc etc to try and get the dust removed. The engine bay still has a nice coating..

Apple-Ogies for the thread hijack.

Think I have mentioned before but I got the car for £0 off freecycle. Swiss bloke had emigrated here in it and got it into his head that it would cost ~£1500 to get it registered in the UK. Cost me about £195 including parts, registration and an MOT to get it on the road. Perfect for the school run, and both me and the wife can now switch from Left to right hand drive cars without a moments thought.
