Brother is 17 & has his test next month & got wind of a 106 1.1 for sale cheap through a young lad he works with.
You can see the disaster coming can't you.
Bearing in mind i got insurance quotes for him on group 1 cars the other month & they were at 3k.
He's banging on about it so he's already decided he's buying it before he's even seen it
4 months test left .... has had work done to it to get it through the test is the word
Tax exp in October ish
I tell him to get the reg plate so i can get quotes. He said he will ....
....& then like everything else with him, he just never gets back to me. His choice.
Views it today & gets the price from 450 to 350 on an S plate with 114k.
Comes home & it's alloy wheels & non standard exhaust.
Trim is "Zest 2" & it's a 3 door.
Going to have fun with the quote then.
Haven't seen under the bonnet so no idea if the engine has been tampered with (though i suspect it's been ragged to within an inch of its life)
Oh and the test suddenly isn't 4 months remaining, it expires end of August.
My brother has his driving test 8th July. So if he passes first time, then he has a month & a bit of test
To get it through, it MAY (or may not) need a lot throwing at it, so that's even more potential cost so soon.
IMO he's rushed into this with his eyes shut.
Any gen info on these motors?
I had a Citroen AX, which i believe is similar (?) & it lasted 6 months & was a bag of cack.
