    It's a 2.0 with some Carat kit and sportline seats.Does anyone know if that is
    a Carat rear spoiler? Salesmans licence overstepping the mark with that description.

    It might be , I had one very similar on my w124 coupe that was a carat spoiler.

    It didn't have the central supports though

    They probably stuck Cosworth in the description to get more hits from the search engine.

    He also says it's cosworth in the header title.

    Most people on here can read believe it or not.

    way too much money for a 2 litre with just Carat Bumpers, Spoiler and (crappy) interior wood and dials. Hasnt even got the Carat wheels - See bobs 2.6 with the "proper" carat leather everywhere interior (and 2.6 engine) to see how it should be done. That was half the price as well.

    When you buy Indian food.... do you think it comes from India too?

    You mean to say it doesn't ? All my life I've been misled ...

    You've ruined my day now telling me that

    Next you'll be telling me that Turkish delight isn't made by happy Turks ?
