P reg puma decisions

I don't think that's the case, most restorations at the present time come as a labour of love, the owners know that they probably won't end up selling or more importantly recouping the costs. Things you need to weigh up is, what needs doing to get it to an excellent standard, how much will that then...

Battery draining problem

Hi Bea, welcome to the site! Maybe open the rear seat up and see if the boot light stays on after you close the hatch? Days gone by the boot light has been a cause of battery drain, so I'd start there before looking at anything more complicated. Else it could be many things, some of the circuitry el...

Ford Puma 1.7 2001 53640miles Silver

It's worth what someone will be wiling to pay for it. Excellent is a subjective word, there's minimal description of the car, no mention of service history, number of keys, tyre condition etc.

On the current information I'd say £700

Retrofitting recaro seats **HERE WE GO AGAIN**

I expect the module model doesn't reflect whether it was set for 1 or 2 airbags setup, but this is just a guess.

But typically a house never loses 95% of it's value whilst you're spending that extra 5% on it sadly.

This is about the best thread I could find on the matter and there's not much in the way of evidence
