Is it the 2.0 litre 16v?

Would look nice with a boot spoiler

My mate is selling an light blue 8 valve one, about 1500 i think he wants for it.

Cream leather interior, N Reg i think.

Being the 8 valve, it is a bit gutless compared to other 2 litres, but a nice looking car.

Doesnt the turbo have 4wd?

I have videos of these thing wasting cossies.

The 16v is quite a good engine, quite high insurance though.

I had the turbo and yes it is a 4WD. They are very quick in a straight line but don't handle well for a 4WD. The 4WD transfer boxes can let go at any time and will cost a minimum of 1500 to get replaced, usually 2500. Tyres need to be changed in sets of 4 otherwise the transfer box gets fried.

Absolute nightmare. In my opinion i'd stay well clear and get the non turbo 16v version for reliability and cheap maintenance.

No offence to your spoiler dj russell but in my opinion i dont think it would suit the car. My ex boyriends cousin used to have one. It was well smart. Black with 18's, i thinkt here were. Really sweet car. All cream leather interior. I think it was a 2ltr, not sure though smack
