147 2.0 T-spark, piston seizure.
My name's Tim, I've just joined on here.
Apologies for the 'immediate sale' style thread I'm posting here, but I thought this may come of interest to someone on here.
My dad owns a 147 2.0 T-spark 2002. It's been off the road for over a year, and was due to be traded in the other week. However, due to it being sat around for so long, a piston seized during starting it up.
Right now he doesn't know what to do with it, as the engine is pretty useless & he doesn't want to spend the money on a car he wants to get rid of. I suggested contacting some specialist forums to see if anyone wants to buy it on the cheap, to sell for parts or strip for themselves.
As I said it's the 2.0 litre version on 90k, cloth interior, full Bose sound system.
Apologies if I'm breaking any rules by posting this here, but I don't want to see a good car go to scrap without giving a few enthusiasts a chance, and felt honesty was the best policy (instead of sneaking 5 posts into threads just so I could make a for sale thread).
If anyone's interested drop me a PM.
I'm fully legit, I can normally be found on UK-Polos (I'm a Moderator on there, and own a Polo GTi).
