Viewed a Spider today-dissapointed...
At a traders 'house' this afternoon, wasnt too far out of the way, but I've got to say that if I wanted a bad example to base my search on, then I found it...
2000 on a V plate- up for £1795, wanted £1600.
I know at this sort of money its not going to be showroom, but imagine the selling points...
New Engine- wow, a new engine! Why what happened? Cambelt snapped, okay, lets see the receipt?- 2nd hand engine fitted, new cambelt- nothing else changed-variator etc.
Rusty rear arches-
Not washed- leaves everywhere.
Hood down- filthy where it was sitting
Alloys- not kerbed, well, the rims werent but the centres were- and badly touched up to hide the fact.- but wow, matching P600's with 3mm trea!!
Centre console- snapped/cracked and glued back together
Aerial- not working
Front bumper- needs repainting
General bodywork- poor and scratched to fcuk
As I said, not expecting a new car for the money, but something thats not an absolute dog or at least described correctly isnt too much to ask?
