    Trim : LE/VXR

    Engine : 2.0 cdti/1.6 Turbo

    Year : 13/07

    Default MOT today...

    Luckily not for my Vectra though. It's for the Punto, may well be scrappy time for the old girl

    I've had 2 years out of it and thats not bad going for a 500 quid car though

    This one isn't too bad, it was bought as a Cat C write off (bonnet, bumper, front panel and bent chassis leg)

    My dad used it for a year for his work and then I bought it from him so altogether it's been 3 years running we've had. Maintenance wise it's had a new exhaust, 2 front springs and 2 rear shocks.

    The underside is getting on the rusty side though and i've had to patch up one of the jacking points already so we'll see what the MOT tester has to say about it.

    If it passes then i'll get the underside tidied up and wax oiled

    Great cars the Punto's. The wifes had hers for 6 years now and never let her down once. 50mpg combined and parts that are so cheap its a joke, whole exhaust just £25!!
