Merlin 2 + 2 Its about 30 years old, my uncle needed rid of it so it was given to me. Here are some pics. Specs are (estimated) 2.0L inline 4 from an old ford capri/cortina giving about 80 bhp which is alot on 750kg of car.

How much are they worth? clean it up and bang it on ebay! Or don't loads of people go on ebay looking for little projects... Especially over winter.
thats a cool car
Im not selling it... im 15, have found some private land... i will drive it a bit then me and my grandad plan to do a classic TT rally in cornwall I love it, and they are rare, but not worth a huge amount.


EDIT : im always on ebay looking for a project for me and my dad, we are after a near scrap capri to do up.
Thats why sometimes its not worth doing a car up to mint condition, people want projects Your plan sounds good though, get your dad to put all the money in it, then sell it when you come to get your first car
that is my first car
What, your going to actually drive it on the road as your first car? When your 17...
Yes. Im a very timid driver off of the track from small amounts of experience, as it 30 years old it gets a classic car policy, cheap to insure fab!
Be very very VERY careful about classic car insurance, make sure they do your age group...!

A month before my friend turned 17 suddenly everyone changed their policy terms about younger drivers and his Spitfire has been sitting on the drive ever since...
I will do, but im in with luck there, as my mum works in insurance and specializes in the motor trade
Picked up yesterday.



Right height feels like an SUV compared to the 323F, but at least everything on the Leon works properly And I'm loving the turbo, despite the huge wheelspin it caused this morning
TDI or 1.8turbo?

Regardless, I love the leons, will hopefully be going back to a golf or leon as soon as I get rid of the current turd.
It's the 110 TDI. Wanted a Cupra (the 150 diesel would be awesome) but insurance wouldn't touch me

Not had much chance to throw it around yet, can't wait to get it on the motorway on Saturday and open her up. That said, I accidentally did a massive wheelspin this morning pulling onto the North Circular - the turbo definitely works
Nice, wouldn't mind one myself, indeed an FR would be awesome, though you should look into the ibiza TDI sport, the insurance on them is as low as my old ZR 1.4...... They are 130bhp but can be remapped up to 180bhp, though I wouldn't put it past 160 so as not to feck up the clutch.

You should maybe look into the chips or a remap for yours, should be able to get 140bhp out of it np.

I thought you were talking about VAG clutch, but I just realised now you were talking about a Rover clutch. I guess now you own something that isn't VAG you are kinda seeing that there aint no better cars right?
w00t for "white van man(tm)"
Friggin retarded foreign builders... not a clue!

He was stationary at a roundabout, before moving off. His "excuse"... "your car's small, I didn't see you"... needless to say, I was far from happy with that response.

Waiting for the insurance people now who are being equally idiotic. Apparently as I failed to notify them of the "modifications" that I didn't do (note: this means wider alloys and different seats!).. it's so far taken them 3 weeks to determine whether the wheels are wider than what comes on a Mini... argh!

Thus far, they even reckon that it's more than likely a "write off". The only damage is a door and window. Thankfully the impact was more of a push than a shunt and was only at a few MPH. The motor's insured for what I paid for it... £3,500. I'm guessing for that, they plan to get a custom door fabricated and sprayed at Rolls Royce! Fsckin' insurance companies!

Awww man
Man that really sucks, insurance companies suck dick, actually, I honestly think insureance shouldn't be a legal requirement, i mean, is GUN insurance? is boat or plane insureance? No, but you can still take a life with a gun, boat or plane.
Quote from BlueFlame :I thought you were talking about VAG clutch, but I just realised now you were talking about a Rover clutch. I guess now you own something that isn't VAG you are kinda seeing that there aint no better cars right?

No, I was talking about the Vag clutch, On the VAG forums most people on there that have had their car remapped to it's full potential have either upgraded the clutch or drove it for 6 months and then had to replace it.

If the scummy rover had 130bhp i'd probarly have kept it, but the amount of money they wanted for a scummy 100bhp car was a joke.

That really sucks Ian, such a lovely car too....

Hope it all gets sorted out soon.
shame for that nice little car.**** all insurance companies,when its about paying the people,its a nightmare..
Nice Mini, I hope you get it fixed fast and that insurance don't put any obstacle to do so.

A shot that a friend take when we goes to Guadix Circuit in Granada (Spain)

Contacted the insurance again today to ask WTF is happening. Now they want to know... how much it cost to get the K&N air filter fitted, and what the BHP was before and after fitment! I didn't fit it (and they know this as I've told them 3 times I bought it as-is and they apparently have "a lot of notes".. do duh.. why not read them!?), so have no idea of the cost.. at a guess, probably ~£20 for the filter itself and self fitment seeing as the fella I bought the car off had completely rebuilt the car himself. As for power, again a guess would be a matter of 1-3bhp.. they really are just trying to be annoying now.

That said, they did say they're leaning towards getting it fixed (apparently they don't normally insure modified cars, period) so looks like I'll have to ride this one out. Thankfully I managed to replace the fuel tank and both sets of engine and gearbox mountings on the E30 (not a fun or cheap job at all!) so it's back on the road again and my other half has her own motor, so it's not essential that I get it back immediately... just annoying that they don't seem to work very fast... yet if I wasn't insured and had an accident with one of their clients... my guess is they'd be all over me like a rash.

After it's done, I'll be moving to a different insurance company and will notify them of the modifications so I don't have to go through this crap again if I ever have to.

Ian
jaja e30 tanks are fun! mounts are easy tho
