MV3 for that price, the newer ones http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/GENUINE-OE...item4ac67b267d

MV2 on ebay are the 250/400 mark sadly! Looks a nice car what price you put it up for? I got mine for 1000 2 yrs ago, but have spent over 3k on it maintainance and a couple of mods! Next is leather interior and retrofit cruise and full electrics.

Andy what colour are the interior trim pieces? And the gear surround, does it have slots for 2 or 4 electric window switches?

Yeah ebay can be variant! I know Jim was after some better rims but 800 is a lil steep lol although I appreciate what you have had done to them and want to re-couperate your losses so to speak, it's a hard choice expecially if parting out too.

Mine are 5 spoke, look ok but will be better when refurbed.

Is your seat interior a dark interior?

On the subject of gear knobs, does anyone know if you can get a short one for our models without the M sport logo?

If you get a second hand Expansion Tank Dropbop make sure no leaks, think new is around 44 in the UK, Ireland i don't know, can try these, but just noticed they are 110 which is a rip off!!! http://www.micksgarage.com/car-parts/
