Thanks for that information , i could deal with it for a bit as the car is cheap for what it is!, how ever the MOT runs out end of Nov, and not sure if its going to fail on anything, will the gear problem come under a MOT Failure?

Here is a link to the item i am interested in.

Renault : Renault Clio 16v

To be honest im looking to spend a maximum of 1200 for a 1.8 Clio, i just cant get hold of a real good one!

Mmmm......I've got to be honest,I don't think it's worth 900,especially with basically no MOT.

If you could get it for closer to 600,then it would start to make a bit more sense,but it's obviously been abused(as most 16 valvers have),and there could be allsorts of things ready to give you some big bills.Theres no mention of a cambelt change,and they are sod's to change,but depending on how bad the chip in the wheel is and how good the exhaust is,if worst came to the worst you could strip it for bits.

I think I'd let this one pass you by,but if you really want it,make sure you go and have a proper look at it before getting too carried away.A car can look completely different in the flesh than it does in pictures.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
