My lovely, low mileage, well cared for, no mods, X-reg (2000) 2.2 NA has had a bit of a bump on the front end (at about 10mph) and, as is common knowledge, many of these cars get written off very easily because of the hassle of sourcing OEM bits through insurance. It's just the front clam that needs replacing and this can be done with a very nice after-market for around £800 all in. Unfortunately I do not have the time to put in to it but I would love to see it back on the road so that someone can have as much fun as I have in it. 

 

I bought the car for £9,250 with full service history it has never missed a beat in my ownership, no play in the steering, great power delivery and has been well cared for with a recent 2016 service, bodywork and interior in good condition and healthy tires all round. I'm looking for £6,800 and with access to a decent repair for around £800 hopefully that leaves someone with a great running car for much less than the sort of money I had to spend to get one of this standard. 

 

Car is currently garaged in Norfolk but I can also get it to London for serious interest and can be driven away no problem. 

 

07975801813 or DM if interested. 

 

Pics to come shortly.

As you can see it was not a big impact and might even be repairable with the right skills.

Except it looks like your passenger side headlight is about to fall out in your last photo.

You think that's a £800 repair? :huh:

 

And now it's a Cat D, I'm afraid it's worth less on the open market (once fixed).

Ah, my bad Nev. The description suggests that the car is being sold in leu of an insurance claim. This may not be the case

Thanks for feedback everyone, definitely a cat D I'm no expert on these cars to be honest just going on the cost of a Lotus Hardtops new clam and self fitting. http://www.lotushard...m-assembly.html although I must admit I thought that included paint which on closer inspection it looks like it doesn't so I can take into account on the price.

For further clarification. Is this a Cat D from this incident or from a previous one? 

 

if it's a previous one, could you describe the damage and repair?

 

if it's this one, I assume you have bought it back from the insurance company and are selling it on?

Cat D from this incident yes, it was in great shape when I bought it HPI clear and no other incidents, no other repairs all I've done to it is a brand new coolant tank and upgraded the windscreen wiper also forgot to mention it's soft top only and it's tight as a drum with no leaks

After some very helpful advice from other members I've found that the cost of a decent paint job will probably around the same as the clam again so with that in mind I have revised the price to £5,900  

 

Thanks!

Bloody hell you must be making a massive profit on that if you bought it back from the insurance co...

 

My first car I cat D'd only cost 2k to buy back!

Why are people who have absolutely no interest in buying this car mocking the price?

 

Give the guy peace.
