My first Brava - what do you think

I just bought my first Fiat brava.... Well from Ebay.

It has only a months mot on it but no tax.

Its a W-Reg 2000 - 1.2 16v SX

66k - new cambelt and headgasket.

Good condition.

I picked it up for 205 from Ebay. How much would i be looking for it once i put 12months mot on it?

Re: My first Brava - what do you think

Are you planning on selling it straight away after its MOT?

Pictures could help aswell.

Give it 12 months MOT and some decent alloys and a general once over, and without spending too much on it i think you should get quite alot back for it assuming its mechanicaly fine. Tax for it is pretty cheap too.

Re: My first Brava - what do you think

I paid 220 quid for 4 tyres an you got a whole car for 200 lol nice. i would hold onto it if it is mechanicly sound, though it is a big car with a little engine.....

My temp gauge is in the middle so wouldnt worry as the fan should be on at the point it shows on yours. if it didnt come on then i guess you should suspect a fault.
