    looked into it and priced engines, and im probably going to put another 1.4 in it and my girlfriend could ise it as her first car. Found one with 77k for £100 from a guy near me. He told me he was breaking a black coupe, i asked about the front bumper, which had an irmy splitter but he had just sold the entire front bumper for a tenner!
