A lad in brum use to own this car (Adammr530) , the only work TRL did on it was remap it the engine was NOT built by them !

The previous owner had quite a few problems with it developing high knock levels due to the engine build from what i'm lead to believe .

I asked a few questions a few weeks ago an had quite a few PM's off 2 members on here who knew a fair bit about the history of the car an after what i'd heard i steered well clear an quite a few have by looks of it as its been on PistonHeads for some time now .....

Please don't slag off the guy's car when you have no actual knowledge of it's condition.

Y'all play nice now :)

The comments about buying a car from west yorkshire is unfair unless you are thinking about Keighly Trade then i would fully agree with that they do sell some rubbish wouldnt let them hold my wallet would never EVER buy a car from them.

the car does sound ok from what i have heard booming past my work but it is normally a blurr didnt see any blue smoke its like grand theft auto around there some nice cars though

might see if the missus will give me permition to come have a look at it

cheers for the comments
