    888

    Hi All

    Just had a look at a T8 in a car super market near where I live and need a couple of questions answering...

    1) What should be on the small panel between the gear stick and under the ashtray? TC button or the edition number of the 888
    2) How can I find out what edition number the car is?

    Sorry not posted on here for some time been away working..

    Mk4 or Mk5

    On the Mk4 the only way to know the edition number is to ring 888 and ask them, probably need the VIN.

    mk5 have a build number - mk4 4's didnt but by ringing 888 themselves with the last 4 digits of the vin they will tell you the build number

    Hi

    Thanks for the responce...

    The T8 that I saw yesterday has two small holes on the panel between the gear knob and the ashtray, just seems a little weird..

    Anyway, The T8 is in the car super market Fords Of Winsford, its done 30K (02) full service history nice clean engine bay. The interior is dirty and the steeringwheel has seen better days... The exterior a large number of bullet holes and scratches plus on N/S the body kit has been painted a different coluor to the car....

    Ask the price!!!! £8,999

    Is it worth that ?

    ps has anybody got the phone number for 888?

    Personally I would look for a mint non 888 turbo coupe and save myself about £3000. But I don't rate the 888 as highly as some, still nice of course.

    if its a different colour and manky - walk away some better examples for the same and less money out there, the holes may be anything: turbo timer, bluetooth kit that the prev owner has taken with him - on the basis its a different colour also suggests accident damage which is still obvious - how much was the colour different tho as europe blue goes all different colours depending on where light hits it
