Specifying the mileage of a vehicle should be made mandatory on all adverts on all selling sites. It's absence is singularly the most annoying thing when looking for a car.
I think "P.O.A." is the single most annoying thing, still, saves me having to read the rest of the advert.

Ooh I like that. Never owned one but always wanted one.

As we may have started a brief Fiat trend, would it be wrong to save this? Stilo 2.4 Schumacher GP edition, needs a bit at £1100, but I suspect it will need a bit when it's tidied!

These days I find hidden registration numbers the most annoying as you can't check MOT or RFL details without them.

The Norn Iron plate means you can add at least a 1 to the front end of that mileage figure.

Yep - my shed was 113K miles and claimed to be one owner. Sounds legit until you see a sticker in the rear window for a used car centre and then notice the glue on the windscreen for their taxi rates etc

Well that's simply not true, smaller car market means your less likely to find a clocked car. NI has about a fifth of the cars of Central London, it's tiny.

Car leaves England with 180k, heads to NI, comes back on new plates with false history and 72k. Happened to my 735i.

This also looks nice: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Fiat-Panda-Selecta/1537...

Not sure on how good the auto box is though! Probably not the best match with such a car and engine.

A bargain. I was often taken to school in one of these non turbos, and it was always so warm and comfy. At that price, it's the ultimate winter beater!

Bit trickier to do now, since DVLA Coleraine closed. That MG has been 'imported' to NI though, TKZ is far too recent and not 'age related'. So if it came from the mainland originally, it will be offered it's original mainland reg back again. Unless of course it came from the South.

Iis it or could it be just a "private plate" that someone has bought?

A similar, if slightly older proposition. Look at the interior! https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C1173938



A 1.8, eh? A friend's mum had a 1.6 and it was colloquially known as 'The Rocket', felt far faster that any of it's peers in our 17/18yo group. The 1.8 must feel like a Tesla laugh
Passed my test in one of those all be it a 1985 model ....yes I'm old.

I can see that Punto being bought up and then sold on at one of those online classic car places who take their photos with a white background.

For £795 ono it’s a steal!
