Got mine back too

I've been wondering a lot on mine as it's an RS and such low miles so it's been interesting. I'm currently doing a full strip of the car, and I have found some overspray here and there which is to be expected. I've also found a fair few stone chips all underneath and on inside of rear bumper etc so it's been used in competition I would say hence the such low miles. It's got a bolt in cage and harness points inside so not sure what type of competition or what level. But at least it's been used how it was intended

It does state it's had a collision and has been repaired, which would explain the spray work (and this was the end of its career as it went to auction after that), But there's no way it would of been chassis related as there is zero evidence of anything anywhere. It's just too clean underneath. It was at auction though not the "dealer network" I was told which is naughty. It spent a long time at auction so it was either too expensive or not nice!! Anyway it's bloody lovely so even if it's had new doors boot and bonnet I couldn't care less. It's not going anywhere anyway !

Thanks for sharing Rich good info

Mine did go through in 2014 though so not sure if that makes a difference. Found the auction pics and sheet on mine through a google reverse image lookup previously

Exactly what I said. Mine had been through a field when I got it. The mud was everywhere! I understand the people who pay a premium for theirs not knowing the history, but there are real bargains to be had out there! I am happy I saved mine from the breakers yard in the sky! More should be too. It took 9months to restore it and 11years later I still have her. Will be interesting to see other reports Come back. I don't think it should affect the values as long as done right.

The free report for my 5 states it is a 6? However, it was imported 18 years ago.

I paid pretty good money for mine, but it's done 10,000 miles! All documented and also proved on this report. It's straight and rust free, there's no way it's had anything bad happen to it. Every seam is straight and original. I think it's had some panel damage from stones etc because it's been used well. Hence the spray work.

Anyway come on people let's hear from you all!

Mine too! Which would be odd for someone to fit the interior, clocks, spoiler, engine, etc. to convert a 6 to a 5. Mind you, it showed me picture of a TME!
