Sounds like a good price to me.

With regards to the chipping ...... it very much depends on what motor it has. Can you open it up and post some pictures with any markings on the can.

All the best - Greg

OK, to be honest I have no idea how easy/hard it is to chip BUT it's a cracking little car and you got it at a good price, nice one.

QUOTE (Rhosneigr Gaz @ 8 Dec 2011, 21:11) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>OK stupid me has just made my first 100% uninformed car purchase on a whim!!!!

Purchases are far more fun that way!

I had my eye on the same car on eBay but the bank manager said "no more cars until after Christmas" so no bid from me. I'm jealous - a great deal you've got there.

(If you're in the least bit unhappy with it, I'm more than happy to offer it a good home

That depends if you want something that looks like a Renault 5 or not.

I'd have been happy with that purchase.


Certainly a lot happier than I was with a brand new Avant Slot Pescarolo that cost me over £30 and then probably another £40 in several attempts to get it to stay on the track.
That was a lesson:- I won't be buying any more Avant Slot cars.

I done something similar I sawa porsche power set on gumtree and went to the guyss house to buy it £10 so good deal I though

He then said he had two other cars





He offered me them for £10 each and I bought them seemed a good deal at teh time should have beat him down

Actually a jag and F40 in that condition would cost you at least a tenner each on evilbay - probably more if they really are as mint as they look. I like the Jag.

Renault's market research showed that there are loads of 'Numptys' out there.
So they bashed out the 5.

It won't impress anyone, untill you get those nasty Rally decals off it...
...spray it a horrible metalic colour (anything cheap from Halfords)...
...and fix the LED's underneath & on the rear shelf.

Get those mods. done; & I'll give you a fiver for it.

Si.
