Previous write off, crease in o/s sill, crease in n/s sill, crease in n/s wing, dent in n/s/f door. Looks like both o/s doors are damaged at bottom (but may be dirt/marks or bad pics). And they obviously want more than £165 for it. With no paperwork and previous write off, I wouldn't be so sure about the mileage either. Certainly wouldn't consider it without going to see it first. Not that I'm in the market anyway. Could probably harvest a number of good parts from it though (especially those rear electric windows).

Yep, the photos when this was first advertised didn't show any damage, but these show a lot more. Obviously been well used and well abused. Shame - it's an early-ish reg. I suppose, the Lynx Bronze is nice and it's the early part-bolster leather interior, so all in all quite a nice car but not in that condition. Two replacement sills, at least one wing, two doors and a respray because you won't find any Lynx Bronze duo-tone doors or wings anywhere else. It has a cracked rear bumper, so there's been a rear shunt at some point, and the claret insert strip is missing a chunk too. Offside front headlight is just about hanging in there too, so I suspect a front-end shunt or... putting it altogether, it might have been sandwiched between two cars at some point. Would really need the front bumper taking off to see what's going on - it could all be bent out of shape under there. Doesn't even have it's under-headlamp hockey sticks - they're just pieces of rubber wedged in there :laughing2

Leather interior would be good to harvest - in beige, so it could be inserted into that BRG 216GSi that's been flipped from £295 to £1900 on Car & Classic, and you'd have a respectable, fully-loaded GSi then...
