350 and wasnt taxed and no mot.mot cost me 80 (needed to plates welding underneath.but that was all.geting it to my house,paying tax,mot and for the car.was arround 500 total :-)

Bargain! Done a compression test? Make sure engine is perfectly sound! Don't wanna put all these things on the car for it to emerge a few months later! Happened to me, turns out the cylinder head was slightly cracked, as I drove it it got worse. Would have noticed before hand if I had tested it

Looks all good then, MOT wouldn't check engine though, and your mates garage might not have. I just think them sorta deals are too good to be true! Good luck with it though! Couldn't have asked for better if everything's good!

Just to say, took me 6 months to notice anything wrong on my car!

yeah i know anything could go wrong.
guy i got it off was a member on here, probly still is but cant remember his name lol. but he seemed a decent guy. he wanted a quick sell as he wanted a deposit for a mk2b. he did have it on here for 450 for 2months but no interest so he dropped it to 350. its as though the car was ment for me haha

re: Out with the old, in with the new (my punto mk2a progress thread)

Going back to the original crash. Back in the mists of time when I was younger and considerably dafter, I overtook a pick up truck on a country lane - no great drama and quite safe, except the next corner I came to (a left hander unfortunately) I lost the back end (it was a Sierra) and went through a convenient gap in the hedge in to a field. Very luckily I didn't hit anything hard (it was 5am) and I was able to get back on the road.
The only damage was to the tyres and rims on the offside.
I had never had a crash before. I had taken an advance drivers course voluntarily when I was only 21, so I was quite shocked as to what had gone wrong.
When the tyre man came out to fit me up with 2 new wheels and tyres, he found a big nail through the back drivers side tyre. He had found the problem. I had had a puncture just before the bend, but the tyre hadn't deflated completely, but the first bend I came to, I had no grip from the back end at all.
Maybe the op had a puncture he wasn't aware of?
O'h yes, and the pick up truck I had passed - National Tyres !
