    if you think you could make more money breaking a car than selling it whole then why wouldnt you,

    Looks like a bit of a shed to be honest - bonnet isn't aligned right, missing fog lamp, chavvy exhaust, Fast'n'Furious air cleaner, and the usual Momo strut brace. Bet it's had one hell of a life.

    Theres limited run and limited edition - SRi-T or similar Id be happy to break if it meant clearing more money - afterall thats the reason for breaking in the first place.

    If its a mega rare car with only a handful ever made then I wouldnt want to break but IMO at the end of the day its just a ZLET with a Prodrive kit - not really a Lotus Carlton or something.

    Each to their own though

    Dont really see the problem tbh. He bought it, he paid his money wheres the issue. They built 500 of them the last of which they struggled to sell at the time, fail to see the problem.

    It's in the for sale section and when I queried it my post was removed.

    It's up to him what he does with the car's he purchases, but I fail to see ho he could make his money back on that car if it was purchased at a "normal" price.

    I also question if this forum, or any other, should be used by some one who effectivly is a car dismatler and sells the parts on for a profit!

    There are strict laws that govern such activities for very good reasons!
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!
