    The upgraded metal ones on eBay are pretty solid but the ones they fitted from factory are terrible! It's a really common fault with them! I wouldn't touch one without it having been done personally! Especially not on a £500 car....

    If I was him I'd be lookin for an old civic as they just run and run and run....

    My mate bought a black 1400 for 250 quid two years ago and he's hasn't spent a penny on it and it drives nicer than his 54 plate golf!!

    Diesel ones are fairly bombproof, not easy getting one for £500 quid tho! Sunroofs leak like a sieve too.

    I think they were a reworked Peugeot engine, from the old 1.9. Not 100% sure but my uncle had a 220d with 240k on the original clutch! Original everything pretty much!!!
