I believe he ended up having to have an ECU from a then new mini, and then someone eventually managed to get it working. Cosmetically it always looked nice, but in those photos it certainly looks worse for wear now.

I think there was also something about the rear subframe was different on the prototypes, or more prone to rust or something, but again, I think he had this sorted around 2009, but may well be wrong on that point. His name was 'Happy' Dave.
That's interesting - where do you think the massive mileage discrepancy came from - i doubt it did the mileage shown from 2002 to 2006?

I've no idea on that one. He wasn't the most talkative of people, so what I know about it was passed on through someone else at work. Possibly to do with the dodgy/broken ECU at the time? Or recorded wrong by the tester? Had to go back and get my bikes mileage changed earlier this year as it had been on 1173.2 miles and he recorded it as 11,732, though it still wouldn't add up with the first 7 removed.

It would be an interesting car to own, but I lack both the money and the space.

If I had the cash I would jump at this, 002 has its issues but the smile she puts on my face every time I look out of the window and see her sat on the driveway is priceless let alone when I press that noisy pedal down and that horizon gets a lot closer. I don't care what she costs me, she's a keeper and if I can't afford to have her put right I'll just save up until I can.
