just had a chat to andy the seller, is the fella who was on here a while back as i thought.
car sound spretty good from what he says.
floors are good, sills need work which he's started on the n/s. jacking points said to be ok. front screen surround said to be excellent, no rot. rear screen has some repiars needed at bottom corners.
the front scuttle/battery tray area has actually been done and finished. i presumed from the listing that it was as per the pictures, a ruddy great bit missing. all welded up, painted & heater box/brake servo re-installed.
engine is back in but needs everything connecting back up to get it running which i can't see being an area of concern knowing these engines.
S1 seats are in fairly good condition, need a clean and a small repair to the drivers one but sound ok.
he has all the S1 trim apart from the front door cards, sorry col....
new rear valance, new n/s front wing, few other bts & bobs but i can't remember it all!
overall it sounds like a reasonable car which needs finishing.
i can go up there in the morning if anyone wants more pictures or an impartial viewing, as long as you don't hold me responsible for not spotting something!
should be over my sniffles by then, have arranged with the seller that i can go up there if needed, just need to let him know tonight.
sounds a really genuine fella much like us all, has too many alfas and not enough time & space. has another S3 sud and a GTV cup. too many cars, too many days at work. i know the feeling
