It had new coils about 2 months ago but I dont think they are genuine.
I'm going to take it to a rotary specialist for an opinion and probably have a compression test for peace of mind.
I know its an arse about face way of doing it. ....after buying it lol

£900  ??? - prices really are at an all time low for these cars. Bad for owners, good for buyers!
