    HairyDave, at least this Berli is roadworthy unlike the Roadster project, I was unsure it was tow worthy :-) saying that it was interesting.
    I quite fancy a 7 for my next project.

    Now its only a personal thing..... but I always find the Berli's a tad unresolved around the design of the windscreen and windows. Now, before anyone leaps at me, I'm aware that these were designed like this due to the fact that this is a 2+2. Its just that in relation to the design as a whole the windscreen and windows are just too tall. And rounded. There, I've said it. As ever its a personal opinion, just trying to gauge other people's view on this to see if its just me.

    Tony. eBay item number:

    254328000291

    I don't know how to make it link. It is up to £1000 but not met reserve.
    Wigglesworld. Personally I prefer the Berli to the Cabrio, I like the rounded screen. I know the front suspension may be described as a bodge and not liked by the DVLA but, I like the overall look. As you said its personal I like the PT cruiser (i wouldn't buy one) and marmite!
    dcunn. Works for me. Just noticed its a Q plate so never tax free.

    Thanks for that!
    I also like the PT cruiser in saloon form, there are several around here in Finistere, think the cabrio version is terrible,strikes me as a can opener job without much thought afterwards!!

    My local garage threatened to excomunicate me if I got a PT. Aparently they are a bitch to work on and the spares are very expensive. The cario does look unfinished.
