What, my Mustang? Yeah, the first one was an auto, but I sold it after 3 months and got a 5 speed for about $250 more.

Nearly 3 years ago now, a practically mint Fiat uno M reg start 999cc for around £375 after auction costs, had the infamous idle stalling which we identified the fault on and is now the standard answer for any of the early fire engines - vacuum advance unit failing. Was sad to see the thing go for uni.
My dads first Punto was a hired one he had for a couple of months, it had 4000 miles on the clock and that often used to stall at idle. That was a 1.1 FIRE unit.

Wouldn't have been vac advanced, the punto didn't have the same system for advancing

Probably just some ECU problem then. As I have always said FIATs are fine if you get a good one, so don't buy one new because you don't know if it is a good one or not.

Just as equally, don't buy a second hand one, because the seller's not gonna tell you that it's not a good one is he? :rolleyes: :laugh:

LOL it's still reserve not met anyway so you've got no chance. Isn't the car worth like £30K? It'll easily go over £20K I reckon.

My first car was a K-reg 1.1 Fiesta. It was red, had big scratches and dents down the doors and was a mess inside. Thats probably why it was free

P reg 1.1 Saxo for £700. My uncle sold it to me, it would've gone to auction if no-one had bought it. I could've waited a few more weeks for an R reg Saxo, but I couldn't be bothered to.

my cars a 16 year old red polo, lol. but i love it and its got bearly any mileage as a little old lady owned it for most of the time. then it was my aunts. she crashed it and gave it to us cuz she couldnt afford to fix it. my dad fixed it (about £200 worth of new bumper, radiator, tyres etc) so therefore ive got my car for free yay

and now they are paying for my lessons too. which is brilliant (tax and insurance on car is already there)
