  11. nice car bob, liking the half tints, in fact liking all of it. I have to say white is my favourite colour for an escort, and yours is crisp mate.
  12. I wouldnt drive that away, i like my licence.
  13. ive joined, whats your team names? mines gunner win it.
  14. He was looking at an alfa 147, theyre pretty sporty and so people assume thats what he wants, something sporty.
  15. I had one, a 2003 147 2.0 selespeed lusso.It had Leather, climate, awesome bose stereo.etc etc.Great car, reasonably quick, fantastic handling and styling, but high maintenance costs, and not the most reliable car in the world, although i would deffo go for the manual version. Mine had 100k miles, and full main dealer history, the crank went due to too much end play, had that repaired then the engine blew up!!! They are a lovely car but if you buy one make sure you get a good warranty, your probably gonna need it. Try one of the alfa forums to see what to look for, problems etc etc.
  16. Hallo, here we have my escort gti for sale. It has 4 previous owners and approx 108,000 miles.Its used daily and we know of no mechanical issues / problems. It never fails to start, is used daily and has no nasty rattles either when hot or cold, no smoke, oil or coolant leaks, clacky driveshafts, knocky suspension, grindy brakes, slippy clutch or anything else i can think of. The car is of standard spec, ie; standard wheels, suspension, air box and pea shooter exhaust. It has electric windows, central locking , a/con which blows cold plus a manual sunroof. No stereo and the remote boot release does not always work. The clutch was replaced ( with receipt ) in 03 / 2006 @ 90,605 miles. The cambelt was replaced by dagenham motors ( ford ) in 04 / 2004 @ 70,003 miles and at a cost of 339.00 !! There is not a load of history, but i have all but 1 of the old mots. The bodywork is good for a 10 year old escort and it does not have the usual rusty and sometimes literally missing rear arches. There is not rot in the doors, round by the sunroof or front windscreen.There is a small rust repair by 1 of the spoiler legs and its not the best job in the world but is certainly not horrendous. The car is very presentable and certainly not a horror or an embarrasement.The paintwork shines and there is no lacquer peel or crazing. But do bear in mind this car is 10 years old and so there are a few marks, scratches , stone chips etc consumate with age and mileage. The interior is good with no major bolster wear, just a light rubbing to the leather. All the instruments work, as does the heater, windows, and central locking. The thingys that the parcel shelf sit on are broken but i have bought some off this site and when they finally arrive they will either be fitted or supplied. There is no water leakage into the car and so no musky smells etc. Also no fag burns in the seats. The car has tax until the end of 11/2008 and mot to oct 16 2008.I have no problems with having a new mot put on the car.The underside looks ok with no signs of previous welding. Its a nice clean and tidy 10 year old escort and a blank canvas if you want to mod it etc. Now for the pictures, http://i256.photobucket.com/albums/hh176/mr-shifter/splitter004.jpg http://i256.photobucket.com/albums/hh176/mr-shifter/splitter003.jpg if you require any more than please ask and sensible questions happily answered. 575 as is or 650 with a new mot. Reason for sale, looking to buy a newer car.This was bought as an interim after the sale of our land rover discovery.
