Hi Steve reg No NKG 518M chassis no 598014737 engine no 1103685 .I brought car in wales it was one owner lady who owned it had passed away it was last on road in 1998 so to sorn  it off road was a bit off a job because DVLA system did not recognise it so had to speak to one of those humans at DVLA and we managed to sort it out . Just trying to get it running smooth so I can take to local garage for MOT. As far as I can see under neath is solid may need jacking point changing on front + disc and pads and wheel bearing has a bit of play and I think the wiper blades have seen better days . If any one knows the best place to get new jacking point panels from please let me know .

From the home page http://www.dr-manta.de/ you can select English by clicking on the Union Flag. If you use Chrome as a browser that has the option to translate the page as well. The only problem with Dr Manta is you have to pay by bank transfer which can up the price a bit.


Actually it doesn't seem to matter if you select English or German, both languages appear in the online shop.


Forgot to say Wolfgang's English is very good, so you can email him with any queries. For my last order I emailed him a list of what I wanted to find out postage costs, and also get his bank details to make the transfer.
