Maybe it does need the MAF or MAP sensor replacing?

You spent £900 trying to fix it, you had a fair crack at it.

f**k that, did you ring the previous owner when it limped on you? You've spent money on it at a specialist to try fix it so you've nothing to feel bad about. Tell him to ring them as their fix hasn't worked.
That’s what I’ve done. To be fair the lads been sound about it. Just one of those ‘intermittent’ faults unfortunately that could be one of 3 things - each thing costs about £300 to replace though.

You should ask for tips on buying cars for yourself, I cant guarantee they'll be decent or running properly though ??
I think this is a little unfair! My recent history had been pretty good.

Volvo 850 - didn’t lose
Pug 405 - bought for £450 and sold for £450
Volvo 940 smoker - bought for £1100 and sold for £1500
Volvo 360 - bought for £1500 and sold for £2400
Volvo 940 turbo - bought for £1100 and sold for £2500
Clio 172 cup - bought for £2300 and sold for £2300 after selling £500 worth of parts

In fact, I’ve broken even on most of my recent purchases so was probably due a bad one.

Do those figures include money spent on modifications, insurance changes, fuel to go and collect them etc etc ;)

Better than me

I usually buy a car and break it?? I always steer clear of a thread until I'm emotionally attached?

My cousin lost £6k in 4 months on an Astra Convertible so you're all just amateurs in that respect I'm afraid.

The Monaro was supposed to be ok wasn't it? Albeit in a lairy, slightly crude way?

Corsa VXR Nurburgring and Astra J VXR are meant to handle well too.

Corsa Nurburgring and the newer shape Corsa E VXR with the performance pack handle brilliant.
