I bought mine with 132k on the clock, paid £800 with full MOT - I could have just chanced it and run it as a daily smoker without spending anything on it but instead I've probably invested another £1000 into it sorting out maintenance issues - all the belts, waterpump, thermostat, all the filters, all the fluids, all the 8 sparkplugs, all the brakes, rear droplinks, replacement rev counter.........
I'm almost at the point now where its 100% sorted - needs an exhaust, will need 2 front tyres by the time the MOT rolls around and if I was being fussy I'd replace the front fogs and get the aircon regassed.
Sounds a lot to spend on a 12 year old car but it runs beautifully and everything works - I dont really want to start again with an unknown car so I should be keeping it for a while !
