I Want A Bravo HGT Thread

Looking to buy another HGT, had 2 before and the bug has bitten again.
Prefer something not too far from me but will travel for right car at right price.
Must have decent MOT and no issues, all keys and V5.
Whatchagot .....

Hey Tidy, best of luck finding another HGT, you can also put an add in our free wanted section here

I did not see many on eBay or Autotrader in the second half of 2012 seems to have really dropped off recently. Probably worth keeping an eye on gumtree, theres been some nice ones in the past on that site.

Re: Wanted - Bravo HGT

this one looks ok to me, if you put standard/or coupe 20vt alloys on it.

http://www.swapz.co.uk/swapz/3087387...bravo_hgt_155/

i would say id be wary about the 'its been cammed and chip'd bit, but if it had a receipt then there is a possibility then it might have been done!? if so, id say buy it because its rare to see someone fit some aftermarket cams in them because they are so expensive.

Re: Wanted - Bravo HGT

I think he was a bit lazy with the interior photos.

The first pic of the front seats is a picture of my 1.4 12valve This is the same pic saved on my gallery;


And then the pic of the rear seats. The rear seats look homemade, the door cards have a different material and the drivers seat is fabric. (edit found a bigger version of the pic he used for the rear, its a one off car i found on google https://www.fiatforum.com/gallery/sh...hp?photo=67836 )

Re: Wanted - Bravo HGT

I found only one on eBay and 7 ads on gumtree, 4 were for same 2 cars.
I live in the north of scotland (maybe should've said that to begin with)
So to go and look at something it needs to be good condition and cheap.
The one on eBay 589 miles away lol.

Re: Wanted - Bravo HGT

rather than buying one with little history for 500 and due servicing and belts, i think you would be better off spending 1000 odd on a good one with service history etc.

Re: Wanted - Bravo HGT

No because i already have 6 cars, some really nice ones and others not as nice.
This would be getting used as a daily runner to take me to work etc (mixer driver at a quarry)
So don't want a mint example at top money just a reasonable one with a decent MOT on it.
My first one cost 800 7 or 8 years ago, my last one was 300.

Re: Wanted - Bravo HGT

i take it your going to do the cambelt/service your self then, cos these cheap ones are often cheap because they are due the 400 cambelt change
