    Result: It has new fluids (brake,oil,coolant) new clutch,new spark plugs,the engine has been mostly refurbished...he then came to the conclusion he'd rather stick to his mopeds,never took the car to the road and the real convincing part was he had it for sale for 1400 euros.
    Congrats on the purchase! Enjoy the car. I hope you'll have more luck with it than I had with my Lancia Delta HPE from '99 (which was based on the same platform, or at least some suspension components could be used).

    Though I have to ask. No pics yet?

    Makes sense. I didn't realize the car was unregistered.

    Is it also called APK in Belgium like in the Netherlands?

    Nice car Konan. I hope it will serve you well. And also good luck with the MOT. Hopefully nothing is faulty.
    And from 44 hp to 130... that's quite a step. Nearly triple the power - drive cautiously

    Yes be careful Konan, because you're more used to auto-ban than autobahn...

    Every two years in Belgium?
    I'm currently best friends with my MOT (TÜV) inspector anyway because of the various changes I made (springs, spacers, intercooler, exhaust, intake) and everything needed to be registered, so I pulled my MOT forward by half a year and had it done already. And since he had to inspect the car anyway, I came off with 30 € for the MOT instead of the usual 100ish. Now I at least don't have to worry about it for the next two years.

    That´s exactly my thoughts. Feels like flying for a week or two. Unfortunately you get used to this after a while.

    EDIT Didn´t want to take your joy away by any means, it´s just that you get used to everything.
