    Totally agree, I was told as a young man 'always buy the best you can afford' and I stupidly thought I could buy cheap, repair it myself and end up with an awesome motor on the cheap.

    What I actually ended up doing was driving sh*t bangers while my 'nice' car(s) sat in the garage for years being 'repaired', while I spent all my actual time keeping my bangers going.

    Hilariously, I'm in my 30s and I still haven't learnt my lesson, I've owned a G60 Corrado for 2 years and 1 month and I've only ever driven it home from where I bought it

    Spend £10k and enjoy driving your car..

    Me neither. White is for washing machines and dishwashers, not cars. And dear god does white accentuate panel gaps.....just look at them!!! I forgot how bad 90s panel gaps were! £12K for a minter isn't so unreasonable, but we all know where the hidden rot lives. I bet they haven't checked all the key areas.
