PostSubject: Do I sell the saxo and get this?   Mon Nov 15, 2010 8:54 pm

With the saxo starting to try and kill me seriously considering listening to my mum and buying a different car and selling off the saxo parts.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=190468607042&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

Offered him 250 ages ago before he got messed about. Its cheaper to insure than the saxo, is cheap and looks to not need much work. Body work I can sort myself.

When I have been paid do I buy it and bin the saxo after selling the engine etc. Think I should be able to make 1000 from saxo parts.

Yes or no???

No. Use the 1000 to buy a half decent one.

So thats a yes sell the saxo?

I really have had enough of it. If I sold the saxo parts I could probably afford to buy a turbo Very Happy
Seeing as the insurance is still less than the saxos!!

Engines can sell for 400+, wheels around 250 cause not best condition, then there is the exhaust which is worth secondhand around 300 for the lot.

Plus the little things I have and then I can maybe sell the shell.

Just an FYI Rich... Saxo/106 parts aren't selling easily ATM and they aren't fetching much dollar either - my 16v block went for 90 in the end, my TD 1.2s from the Saxo went for 180, ive litterally just sold some Spax I had lying about for 4 months for 50. Not a good time to be doing it unless you're prepared to sell cheap or you don't mind waiting for stuff to move.

Stop mincing though Razz

You are wrong, why swap on french pile of poo for an older french pile of poo?
Maybe if I had a daily car I would get one.

Get a Fiat Coupe Turbo... Or megane Smile

Get rid of the saxo, i thought it was a bit silly keeping it and getting a mr2 as a daily because the saxo will be underpowered and you will just want RWD on track Razz

Rich sell the saxo and save as much as possible and buy a decent n/a. Rev1-2 or if you can make it to 1500 you could pick up a decent high mileage rev3. As long as the car has a decent service history the engines last well. Mine old rev3 n/a was on 152K and was still on the original H/G. Turbos dont take the mileage so well.

Any mr2 you buy try get one with as much history as possible.

Id be very very carefull buying a turbo for any less than 2K. Personally l would'nt do it. For a decent rev1-2 turbo your looking at no less than 2.5K mate, you dont want to be buying a turbo thats not being serviced or looked after as it should. Ive read so many horror stories of people buying cheap 1500 turbos then paying the same again for an engine re-built. Alot of dogs about mate including n/a's so just be carefull or you might find yourself with a money pit.

If it was my money id try my best to get a decent n/a bud.

Find a good one and you should have many trouble free miles ahead

I might be getting a job, so will wait to see how that goes. Now I am not spending money on the saxo I should have a little more for putting towards a car.

I have started to get offers on parts already!

I just need to decide what sort of car I want. I want something fun on track but still useable daily, not too expensive on parts or insurance.

Mx-5, prelude(older square shaped ones), mr2, maybe golf, or bmw e30/e36 or something.
Ideas would be helpful

Avoid an mr2 turbo then fuel will kill you mate.

n/a's aint cheap to run and parts are expensive.

But fit some decent pads (yellow stuff were fine on my n/a) and fluid change and they are track ready.

rich can you tell who I listened to when looking for one, considering what I said on FB the other day! Laughing

but as said, if your after a nice daily an N/A is the better one tbh as a turbo will rape you on fuel, i've found that and you don't realise until you actually are at the pump on every 1-2 journeys

If you really wanted a rev3 turbo project l found this in b4t colours!

http://www.imoc.co.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?t=139066

Ill be honest l wouldnt buy it myslef due to the mileage and lack of service history. Body can be sorted but engine/turbo parts are expensive! But you wont find a cheaper rev3 turbo.
