    Welcome. Looks a nice one. I always think the Ultra Red cars look great with black wheels, bullets, door handles and badges. Would look really well with the black endplates on the wing and the black stickers (which I also like).

    Hope she treats you well, and it's good that you're prepared for the challenge. Hopefully it's all plain sailing as much as possible!

    Im buying two excellent condition seats on saturday from a member on here, had all belts and tensioner with rocker cover gasket done last week. Gear box is coming out at end of the month because of crunch in fourth so will throw a new clutch in while im at it... loving driving it as it is

    Welcome along. UR is such a good colour on these. Glad you're getting her sorted & hope you enjoy ownership as they're such a blast to drive.

    this forum is really helping, was struggling to find parts and advice. not seen ANY 197's in the last 12 months where i live. had to travel for 90 minutes to buy this one.. strange but not a very big 197 scene in manchester?

    @Pav is our loveable Manc... he has a trusty mechanic @trevor milnes who undertook Pav’s megane conversion and looked after mod father @Jimmy cambelt change so would be highly recommended for any and all works you propose
