    This 250D up for £1100 on autotrader.

    Sorry to the owner but it looks awful, including the fake Carbon Fibre interior :confused:

    It's just out of MOT, and the seller makes no mention of getting a new one. Also, at the last one, the mileage was 183k yet the car is now apparently on 179k. If you're going to clock it surely you'd do it for more than just a few thousand? Or perhaps there's something fishy going on and the vendor no longer has access to the vehicle and can't check the mileage (perhaps he/she no longer owns it?).

    Lets be honest, if your going to chav up a car at least do it to a Fiesta or a Clio, MB got it right the first time and anything other than very subtle improvements is too much for me, each to their own I suppose...

    It's been welded together. The 2 halves being more than the sum of the whole. :D

    Or, looking at the overall state of it, rivetted / fibreglassed.
