    Hi im new here and have been offered the above car for a bargain price, its not in bad condition, however i was just wondering what availability is for tuning these cars ie. induction kits/manifolds/exhaust systems/cams and also styling them ie. bodykits/lights/lowering springs
    thanks

    theres lots of parts available not much point spending bags of money on the engine but plently of 16v/williams parts and alloys around to make it look smart

    nice little motor - the sort of car you can sell on in two years at no loss if kept looking good.

    BUT

    keep it standard & as mint as you can get it, save your dosh and move on in two years!

    you could EASILY blow 2 or 3K on mods and get NONE of it back!


    Wouldn't 2 years extra no claims and 3K towards a 172 be better?

    ^ £25 a week saved in an ISA would give you nearly 3K in 2 years!
