Default Lovely hatch on fleaBay at the moment. Anyone here?

Saw this on FleaBay. Looks lovely. I'm not after a new car but if I were in the market for a hatch, this one ticks a lot of boxes.

You'd wonder why they left the secondary air pump in it though

You know what, I think you're right. I remember seeing this on fleabay even before I bought my current car but it was a totally different advert and didn't mention Syvecs etc.

It's not going to sell that easily until the seller puts up more details on the forged engine.

That number plate rings a bell. I'm sure it either belongs to someone in here, or used to.

This car was for sale before along with a similar hatch, somebody on here linked the adverts in a thread asking about them,One of them was built by the clinic and was around 450bhp I believe.

From the spec and parts fitted, if I had to guess I'd say this was built by the Clinic.

You're right it was on ebay a while back if my memory serves right and I do believe the guy selling it is the buyer who was enquiring about it via a post on here as it had a slipping clutch. Apparently the engine work was done at scooby clinic.

Remember this car on Facebook just before Christmas, the guy said he had engine trouble and asking for recommendations on builders.
