That’s Quo (Christian)’s car and it is indeed a fantastic car. I think there’s an ad on here too..

im sure this will start another forum issue......but just for reference i never refused to pay for any parts, i have the invoice from him and a payment made by BACS to him for that amount.

The issue was when i came to collect the car, half the suspension didnt have any nuts one which he didnt tell me, the rollcage only had 2 bolts in it and apart from the parts being blasted and powdercoated, nothing else was done.

As i was loading the car onto the trailer he stated he had worked an extra day more than what he had billed me for and wanted another £150, at that point i said ok, only to get home to find all the nuts missing and things not done, at that point i didnt pay him anymore.

I can name 4 different people that has been messed around and ripped off by him.

Gearbox built wrong
Pinching parts from one customer to be used on others
engines failing

He maybe the darling on there but I was told by one of the customers that he cant say anything because he fears it will affect the value of his car that had the conversion done.

anyway, im not here to sell anything, just enjoy different peoples modifications, so continue on

I see Sam's car and that mint 3k miler have disappeared off PH and been replaced with a couple of newbies.

Lol what did it go for Sam :D

Should a 190 carry a premium over 170? I was just looking at spec and only two have the 190 unpgrade, sport seats and AC and those two both have 30k miles but are £10k apart.

None of them get driven so it makes no difference.

Mine does, weekly, all year round. 46,000 miles now, so it won't be of interest to collectors.
