No not me breaking it. I saw it yesterday out in a metal recycling place in Letterkenny yesterday and just thought I would put the word out on here as you dont see many of these about never mind one for parts. By the way what are those cars like to drive power wise etc. if you dont mind me asking.

Cheers, I might ring the fella again I didn't think he'd still have it, CCOVICH picked up the wing mirrors for me before the summer.

I love it, the 2L engine is very strong and if they have been well maintained they keep their power very well through the years, mine dyno'd at 146bhp 2 months ago with 140 torques, so she's only lost 4bhp and actually gained 2 torques.
The handling is great and is still very comfortable on long drives as well and the mpg is usually in the mid thirties which is always a bonus.
If you come along to one of the meets you are welcome to take it for a blast if you like.

Gav-that's not the place I got the mirrors from. It's either a different car, or the guy who sold you the mirrors sold the car on.

Just rang him. He said he doesn't think so but is going to call me back. I am raging. There was a set on here in the classifieds. I just missed out on them. The lad is coming to pick them up on sunday so hopefully that falls through.

The only thing thats rare about Clive's wheels is the colour, the set of 17' Teles that have just sold could be made to look identical for little more than is being paid! So, with one you get 4 x 17' Teles for £300 and in the other the same rims with a darker silver spray you pay 4 x as much + VAT!

Although! Clive's are GENUINE 'Cup Alloys' and brand new! So! They are worth? ......... i don't know!?

Very true, did a normal set of tele's just go for 300? Thats a pretty good price, Autolusso always ask for minimum of 500, unrefurbished and with some barey legal tyres!

Ha. I just called that guy. I thought they were 300 for the set. I was flicking through the Ad while i was on the phone and my jaw dropped. I just said to him "sorry but........" He just said " I'm not that silly"

Seriously though wtf is with the price on them?

1200 sterling it does actually say it in the body of the ad if you scroll down. He can be fairly deceptive with his ads alright. Check out the titles on his eBay ads, beautiful cars but he has GTVs for sale with titles like 'GTV Cup lookalike not spider' so any time you look for any of those words they'll come up. Seriously nice GTVs though

Aye, Clive is a regular on the boards. He deals with the premium end of the market and he has a lovely AutoDelta Spider for sale, the only problem is there was an even better looking one in Scotland being sold that had 5 X Zender Sienas 18' wheels and it was approx the same money, if it was still for sale i would be interested but! i doubt it?
