Smile Fixit's new Marea

Here it is. Needs a couple of things doing, some electrical gremlins (noooo, surely not I hear you cry!) and some mech work - but it all looks good so far

Lovely Pete, health to enjoy and all that craic. Mareas are one of the best kept secret bargains IMO. A lot of car for the money.

Re: Fixit's new Marea

I still think it's such a bargain, have to agree with you Steve. No rust (well ok a tiny spot underneath that's not major and will treat easily) and 147 bhp for Ģ1100!

Lora, yeah - it's good to be able to take people places again instead of relying on them driving. Still keeping one cinq, though.

Re: Fixit's new Marea

Very nice! Bet it doesn't stay at 147bhp for long though... you gonna tune it Pete, or keeping the beast standard?

Looks good.
Exactly how 'standard' are you keeping it.
