Bad Bits. (please see pictures)

Slight lacquer peel on spoiler on rear
Front grill snapped by me (stupidly) and has been removed.
A few small dents around the car
Small rust bubble about 2 inches in diameter bottom of drivers wing
small rust bubble around rear washer jet about the size of a £2 coin.
On the driver side it had lots of tiny scratches along the side in the laquer and would require some sort of paint correction.
From a cold start the lifters tap slightly for a few seconds before its warm
Bonnect catch does not operate correctly and a screwdriver needed to open bonnet. This is how i broke the front grill. easy fix for the mechanicly minded.
some times grinds in second gear
all tyres are relatively low around 3mm tread.
coolant level sensor broken. does not loose coolant

The car is in good mechanical condition underneath and engine. The bodywork does require some correction and love . Other than the small patches of surface rust mentioned and the lacquer damage it is fairly clean for 22 years old. I am trying to be honest as possible and im sure ive goodcaptured all the bad bits and missed some bits. I just dont have the time or space for the car anymore but not in a rush to sell. Any inspection or questions welcome

looking for in the region of £2800 o.n.o.

Car located near GT yarmouth, Norfolk
