    New motor.......... Non VAG I'm afraid Cossie003

    It's a car I've always wanted & I thought I never would due to insurance cost........... well it cost me 55 to bump up the the Sierra from the mk3 Golf VR6

    price's on Sapphire's are at the bottom at the moment (paid 1500 for mine)........ there going to start to rise pretty soon & hopefully I won't loose any on it

    awesome!!! love the saphys, id love to own one. Pardon my lack of knowledge of the sierra kind but is it a 4x4 or a rwd?

    i bet its alot of fun to drive whichever it is.

    It's an early Sapphire, so it'll be a 2wd model. 1500 isn't a lot for a Cosworth at all. What's the bodywork on it really like though?

    rwd (as Gee said)......... better for drag & trackdays, less strain on the clutch & only 2 tyres get wrecked

    it's just had it's first bit of welding..... on the passenger side sill, the jacking point was rotten

    it's had a bump on that side at some point & both door's have been replaced

    the main places for rot on Sierra's...... rear arches & rear "chassis legs" are fine, just a bit of surface rust

    door tops (bottom of the window) are problems on Sierra's too....... we've replaced 3 of the 4 door's with door's from a late K reg Asura that I bought off eBay

    need to find a 4th door (rear passenger side)........ then I'll get Matt to paint the full car
