cars with duff motors dont often come up for sale most of the time its cheaper and youd make more money fixing them and selling a a going concern

theres few 5s now decent cars under £5k which is good money for what you get

Whats you reason for thinking about this? Do you have an engine and box already? A forged engine or something?

Im curious as I was only thinking today, that if I was to sell my car, would I sell it complete, or remove the engine (low milage evo 8 260 with GSC S1 cams and other bits), gearbox, transfer box (uprated), rear rs diff (evo 9), and brakes (K Sport all round) off it, then sell it as a rolling shell. Was trying to put a price on the shell in that state

Only thinking aloud really

ahh local then :smthumbup

If I were you then, i'd be patient and wait for someone selling with a blown engine, they do pop up, not often, but do come along

In your position, i'd also consider looking at 4's, due to their poorer engine design, they are more commonly sold with engine issues, and even with a working engine, are cheap money for a good car these days. Many people looking to buy a 4, are looking for evo 4's with later engines fitted, to avoid this issue

Thanks for the advice stu,
really after a 5 or 6 though I know its only personal opinion but I really like the look of them,
just wondering if i'll get a whole car minus engine and gear box for around £2500...
