    Thought I'd stop creeping around and say hi!

    Used to have a cam'd and stripped out 172 cup with 203bhp. Sadly sold it due to buying a house... Now that's out the way, I am looking to get another toy, this time a 197.

    No doubt I'll be at some of the meets and FCS this year.

    Anyway... ttfn

    Thanks guys!

    Already looked at a couple... looks like melted front wheel arch liners are a common thing!

    Having to expand my search but the buyers guide is a good shout!

    Picked it up last week:

    Not really had a chance to grab many pics yet, but will do this weekend!!

    - It's an 06 197, Albi blue 75k
    - Michelin SP4's all round
    - EBC drilled grooved all round with yellow stuff rear pads and Mintex race fronts(?)
    - Scorpion exhaust with decat

    Mechanically great, horrible 2.5k flatspot... stone chipped bumper and some poor matched paint on previous body work repairs, but I wanted a project! Still looks tidy unless you have a very keen eye.

    Either way, I'm happy with it
