Hi, I currently work in a garage in the Newcastle upon Tyne area, and have joined this site to gain some info on my Wifes selespeed veloce. I did advise her against buying one, but hey do they ever listen?
2001 X plate @ £1800. Went great for about 3 months (likes a drink of oil) then I had a gearbox swap on my hands.... and radiator. Now it has developed what sounds like the early stages of a big end rattle (started today) - checked oil and guess what none on dipstick. What I really would like to know before I price up some new shells is can they be changed with the engine in situ?
Anyway nice to meet you all:
