    Talking Swear I've just picked up the bargain of the century!!

    Just popped to my local breakers yard to get a couple of bits for the other halfs Clio and spotted a coupe turbo in the corner! Waddled over and grabbed the steering wheel (with the grey bit and hand grips like the gsi's) and the irmscher crosshatch grill, went to the desk to pay

















    £15!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's right I haven't missed out a zero at the end am going back tomorrow to get a few more bits, they want £40 for the black leather and cream material interior so am going to have that and grabbing the chrome strip and what ever else takes my fancy anyone want me to see if they have any bits lol?

    Sounds like a potential gold mine for buying and selling on parts!

    Ha ha yea will probably have the engine for myself if it's still complete, I heard about this scrap yard through a polish friend, said they did pretty much anything for any car so asked if there was a skyline there (for a mate) and when I turned up I found this in the rafters lol



    Know what you mean Brian, to get a bargains one thing but to find extra bits too makes it all the sweeter!

    As for the chrome strip I'll have to think about it as I want it for myself lol!

    It does have the silver centre console although it may need a respray, will post photos of it tomorrow at around 5ish so keep an eye on this thread as I wont be there long

    Just fitted the grill and am well impressed!

    Right bargain there!

    I got lucky last summer with stuff for the interior for my MK5.

    Centre console, heater controls, gear surround, 12v socket and tray, glove box trim, steering wheel controls, and headlight trim all for £41 delivered.

    Unfortunately was a nasty champagne colour, but its been carbon wrapped so makes no odds to me.

    Alone, the heater controls were worth what I paid for the whole lot, if not more.
