i guess that's why NCT test includes check for chassis number vs reg. document. i wonder is the merchant aware of risk he's placing his business in?

I can't believe the new owner of this added two stripes and added €500 to the price at least. Was for sale less than a month ago for €1000 in Waterford with a tow bar.

Would love to make easy money like this

Went to view this car as I'm coming back to mini ownership at last! Is actually a 97 mpi interior and running gear in an earlier-ish shell.

That's a real shame, because it looks like a nice clean car.
Looks like Zircon MET - JNJ (BLVC471)
