I am bidding on it at the mo as its only just a few miles away from me, dont realy know what its worth as it needs to be striped in situ as it needs to be crushed!! just have to wait and see.

Good luck jimmy with the auction,

It is a shame though, i guess it is unrepairable as the chassis was bent?

all the best

That's my old car!

The front is only superficial!, problem is the driver's side where the car is 1/2 inch narrower than should be, a full on side impact (now just so you all know, I was not in the car!)

The engine and running gear are spot on as I use to service the car every 10k miles, and put the right oil in. Also used Optimax only ...

What is it going for?

Idea with this would be to get a cheap E46 and transfer everything over, you'd have a good car.

Suprised about time I must agree as the accident was in October last year!

But I am sure it is my car, although some bits are already missing at the front! (cloth seats, rare for B3)

Neil, that is exactly what I have just PM'd you about! So chaps, this is my old car!

Well I never thought I'd see her again, jimmy switch-tronic has a torque converter but is not exactly an auto.

Everything worked on the car after the crash, so it is a good basis to build a compact Alpina or the like ...
