i guess that's why NCT test includes check for chassis number vs reg. document. i wonder is the merchant aware of risk he's placing his business in?

What a mish mash, mayfair seats, spi clocks and mpi dash. Who knows what it was originally. I wonder what lurks underneath that badly fitting bonnet?

http://cars.donedeal.ie/view/7490465 mini city for sale

I can't believe the new owner of this added two stripes and added €500 to the price at least. Was for sale less than a month ago for €1000 in Waterford with a tow bar.

Would love to make easy money like this

It's bad in America too, but why advertise it globally?

Went to view this car as I'm coming back to mini ownership at last! Is actually a 97 mpi interior and running gear in an earlier-ish shell.

Chassis plate doesn't match logbook, according to seller. He's also selling a logbook for a tractor.

fairly easy as well.
