    shed of the day.

    as promised pics of the 850 ive bought for development reasons. i wont have this long. its a embarisment to have on my drive. its done 191k 2.3 t5 auto. will prob be striped when im finished with it. things didnt go well once it we got it off the recovery truck. first the batter was dead. no big deal. but the hand brake wasnt very good. so had to leave it in gear. so i got it started. got the mrs to move my car as i couldnt take my foot off the brake unless i wanted to collect it from the bottom of my street. went to move it and it stalled. typical. jump started it again. parked it on my drive went to put the poor handbrake on and the lever came off. enjoy the pics

    i thought it was auto. there loads of play in the gear selector. the smell inside is terrible. i felt sick when i sat in it. ill wash it and clean the inside tomora and jet wash the engine bay. i cant work on it when its in such a state.

    Wow! Don't think I've seen a handbrake lever snap off like that before :0

    How can people treat cars like that, don't care what mileage it has done... Look after a car and it will look after you?

    after a closer look the body work isnt that bad. needs a front passanger wing but the rest looks ok. the inside is realy disgusting. i had the intake pipe of and the turbo has a lot of play in it. ive seen worse though.

    not yet but thanks for that. think i might end up returning it to you though. i think this one is beyond repair. needs a little more work than im willing to do. i think the rear spoiler is the best but about it

    Looks like it fits nicely, what's all the wet fluid around the abs modulator, it's not leaking brake fluid I hope :0
