Loads of paperwork as you can see in pictures, comes with 2 keys and the plastic one.

All this car needs is a new maf sensor which I am replacing at the end of the month with a genuine Bosch one along side with Brembo discs n pads.

Due to the brake upgrade the brake pad sensor warning comes up time to time, still yet to check if this is due to a broken wire as its intermittent, this may be solved when I replace the pads.

Overall the car is amazing, Im only selling due to wanting something more economical. She's fast, loud, great to drive and gets plenty of compliments.

As with the age of the car there are some cosmetic issues (She is 15!) Small amount of rust on the n/s/r arch and the odd patch of lacquer peel on the front bumper. The most common is rust on the roof rack rails which this car does NOT suffer from. Wheels could do with a refurb but this has never bothered me.

Paintwork 8/10

Interior 8/10 - No rips whatsoever

She's cleaned and waxed regularly and very well maintained previously so credit to previous owners there.

***Im ideally after swap for a fabia vrs special edition or a red one, ideally standard with low miles but would consider modified.** so if anyone is interested in a swap, please feel free to get in touch. On the other hand, I am open to offers and the price is negotiable but please don't take the piss! I think i've been very fair with the pricing based on auto trader and eBay prices.

If I've missed anything out, I'll add at later dates.

Thanks for reading the essay
