that would be great if you could take a look for me. im planning on going to look at it Saturday lunchtime. i live in south wales so a fair trek for me. i thought the car sounding good on paper decent for a car at the cheaper end of the market. its had 11 owners according to hpi which made me nervous. but with a newish clutch and the arches refurbished it sounded ok. they said the suspension and valves clearences had also been looked at. think the guy said he wasnt there till Saturday though. anything i should look out for? john

Seems a clean, average mile example - the benefit of the arches being done is a bonus.
Some nice bits added like MY02 door cards, the spoon exhaust, front lip, spoiler and hard top. These are definatley getting harder to come buy.

The honda service history is a stretch! Especially looking at the photo!

sorry mate, I wouldn't be able to look at it before you on Saturday I'm afraid. Sunday would be my earliest chance due to work.I read the FAQ over and over again before I started viewing so make sure you've done that. Don't be afraid to walk away if it doesn't feel right don't be afraid to walk away. Take a magnet with you to check how thick any filler is on the rear wheel arches.

good luck...

Not to worry, obviously not meant to be, fate and all that.
Had another good look at the pic and to be fair he couldn't even be bothered to clean the car before taking the For Sale pic's.

keep looking and do not lower your standards just to buy one...
