    I’ve been after advice on meg my 197.
    A lovely yellow one popped up already done on eBay.

    I put a bid in and got popped to the post.

    Feeling frustrated I refreshed the page and as by magic a meglio deep blue f1 appeared. Sorry don’t know the colour name.
    No paper work
    Unknown history
    1 key card

    Feeling a bit apprehensive I looked where it was and as it was only 50 mile away I thought sod it.

    Well.... drove there and had a look and picked it up for what I feel is a relatively good price. Recaro Seats are immaculate.

    I want to map it already. I think it’s slow but all the hard works done

    Absolutely no idea mate
    Looks to be done by a pro but no proof

    Long story

    Basically :
    A guy had it done
    He got seriously ill
    Young lad is a mate and bought from family knowing all was done correctly.
    He got done in other cars and got close to a lost licence. This was show.

    I stepped In and bought.

    It’s a steal. Even if engine drops a cylinder out I can’t lose. I bought it for low end f1 money

    It’s got a tidy conversion
    Immaculate Recaro s
    Cobra turbo back with sports cat
    Big arse alloy rad
    And possibly the most annoying dump valve in history lol

    No idea on miles of 225 engine
    Pretty sure it’s a 225 box so no lsd
    Was done in 2016 and drove 453 miles until October 2018. It’s done 3412 since then and then I bought it

    Has drilled and Groved discs and yellow stuff pads

    R26 f1 18 inch alloys. Maybe I’ll get lucky and find out it’s lsd box

    Part no. For an r26 box is NDO 020 and std 225 is NDO 000.
    It's usually on the labels and engraved into the box.
