    Hi All
    I just thought I would drop in to say Hi, I've just taken ownership of my brothers 1996 316 compact, It has a list of problem's including Non working electric windows,( the common worn clips).
    Abs light occasionally comes on, sensor problem!
    Passenger door doesn't lock with remote or by pushing down the button (any ideas).
    Slight surface rust on rear wheel arch.
    And a interior that is light grey but needs a damn good valet

    But on the plus side, it is all original with dark blue paint that just needs a polish and it has had a host of new parts over the past 12 months and more recently I fitted a new water pump and thermostat.
    And is taxed till Feb & Mot till Feb.
    All that for £150
    So any tips on what things I should look out for will be most appreciated and over the coming weeks I will be bringing it back up to how it should be.

    Neil

    Gentle persuasion and to top it off, Today I spotted an exact same car and colour sitting in a garage waiting to be scrapped, so after speaking with the garage owner I managed to get all the parts I needed and parts I wanted just to keep as spares, I:E bumpers, mirrors, interior panels, lights, locks etc all for £50 the car gods must be looking out for me
