Finding a track ZS - CASH WAITING

Ok so have finally decided that due to wedding commitments next September and not wanting to be stressed trying to save every penny before xmas for a MK2 180 I have decided to wait til after the wedding to begin saving for the MK2 180 I desire.

However that means I am going to spend around ?1000 on a MK1 180 for track use at Knockhill.

So I know some of you guys love hunting, and I have looked myself, so here are the requirements:

MK1 ZS 180 Saloon
Colour preferably black or yellow but open to all
Belts must be done
Mileage up to 75k
Standard ok, decent exhaust/induction better (no cone in bay!)
Tyres/brakes decent to race til December minimum (3-4 track days)
MOT/tax minimum 6 months
Distance no problem
No VIS/Plenum/Manifold issues!!!
Average bodywork condition (no big dents/rust [dings ok])
No rips on interior, wear and tear ok

http://www.autotrader.co.uk/classifi...ge/1?logcode=p

This particular one has huge potential, am just waiting on a reply from owner for above queries!

Have checked Pistonheads/Autotrader today but just briefly.

All help would be appreciated and looking to buy in 4-5 weeks!

yeah its quite extensive and specific! Some things may be swayed but not belts and engine faults!

Never looked at ebay cos you have to bid on most and I wont have the full amount until next month.

oooh, almost a win, except ends to soon and is a hatch

Also, I am open to ZS replicas with 2l turbo conversions if done right and someone with knowledge would give it the ok! (or even a converted ZR if it is just right )

dont get a zr.. honest mate it will not tick the boxes and a zs 180 would trounce a zr turbo on track.. espeically if u bought it for 1k..

btw hatches handle better and actually look better

I'll disagree with looks, I love the saloon tbh, personal taste, but am curious to know more re handling.

I will take your word on the zr so can scrap that idea lol.
