That's one of clives cars, he's on the forum and seems to specialise in GTV/Spiders from what I've seen.

One of the lowest GTV's I've ever seen!

Confused as to whether its on coilovers or uprated shocks and springs, as the ad lists both :confused:

You'd have to be clinically insane to pay anything close to the asking when you could buy a £3.5k example, spend £3k tops with one of the specialists on this forum, get everything done and still have £1.5k left to spend on beer :thumbs:

it's a rebuilt engine that's why mileage is low - but the car itself has still travelled more miles than that it it's lifetime just not the engine. But is a rebuilt engine the same as a brand new engine? This has all been discussed before in another thread but I just would feel a little fake if I drove around in a car looking like a cup but not really being a cup plus the price is too high IMO but I don't want to bad mouth the car as it's clearly in good nick

the 58k turquoise one he's got at just under £5k (cambelts as 55k) looks better value if you like the colour
handy how he tells you that GTVs aren't spiders and vice versa

That advert is very confusing. Does it actually say the overall mileage of the car? or is it 13k or am i being daft? :confused:

Nice looking car but ruined by being slammed like that IMHO; lost all the GTV's natural poise.
It does look a bit wrong with its reverse rake:lol:. Not a problem though, easy enough to wind the rear coilovers up 10 or 20mm or so.

i may be wrong but I dont think FK coilovers are £1k, more like 600ish. :thumbs::D

My GTV is at the standard ride height and it scrapes speed humps, so I would be very wary of one that has been lowered. It could be difficult to live with.


It looks nice though, but I can't help but think I am asking too little for my car now. :rolleyes:

The exhausts also on the chavvy side of large IMO.

That's to capture more punters who search on a car model that may be persuaded to buy something else.

this car has been part of a bigger discussion in the past, it was the thread about Autolusso's overhauled GTV.

IIRC the mileage of 13,000 reflects the engine, the car itself has done far more mileage than that

the car itself has done 139,000 miles.

:eek::eek: Oops didn't realise this had been "discussed" in detail (although lucky for CG Darren156 is no longer a member) ... well anyway looks like Darren was right as it's still for sale

All I can say is it will be waiting for the right buyer for a while.

It's called keyword spamming.

And yes, fair to say that car will be righting for the right buyer :lol:
