    If only I had some spare cash at the moment :Frown:

    Is it possible for a bottom end to "detoriate" @SpeedyGee ? Never heard that before

    I quite like the white one I must say

    So, in other words, they have been ragging the daylights out of it, broken the engine, and now acting "I have no idea what happened".

    As you say, they are very similiar indeed

    The S2000 engines do have a known issue with rattly timing chain tensioners. Which is indeed easy to fix.

    Are you tempted by the white one @Nighthawk ?

    I have a thing for white cars, after living in Africa where just about every other car is white. I would love it, but couldn't fix the engine, and besides which, the boss would have a heart attack. :Laughing:

    ....unless of course a certain fella on a certain Honda forum who has rebuilt plenty of Honda engines could manage to make room for an S2000 to have its heart ripped out and rebuilt would be available :Whistle:

    A bit of polish and she will be fine

    Incidentally, I bet it still runs

    So which part of this this is worth £3995 ?

    The way he's advertised it with UNRECORDED in capital letters, is he suggesting someone buy it, repair and put it back on the road ?

    Seems to have some heavy impact damage, is that even repairable @Nighthawk ?

    He clearly spun that. The front cross member is gone as is plain to see which isnt a huge issue in itself really, but if you look at the 2nd and 3rd picture, you can see the offside main chassis beam has been pulled towards the centre of the car. You can put money on that meaning the chassis is bent as a result so she will crab like mad if you repaired it. You could possibly pull her straight on a jig using hydraulics like I tried with my Toyota before cutting the section out and replacing it. Also, the entire front suspension is knackered, wishbones are clearly gone - you can see the wheels pointing opposite directions, and probably the steering rack and hub assemblies.

    Near side rear tyre looks bent intowards the car as well. I reckon he lost control connecting with a pavement on the nearside of the car before it spun and took the front end out. Look at the dent on the bonnet - where he has hit a pole or a tree, the dent is not a central hit, its been hit slightly from the nearside heading towards the offside - you can see the dent slightly elongated going from left to right - on the picture. This would make sense as the sideways impact would cause the main chassis support beam to pull into the centre of the car

    Anything is repairable, but that probably deserves to be put on the scrap heap after all the good parts have been taken from it.
