Since owning this vehicle I have covered approximately 2000 Miles in 3 Years. I have only ever driven it in dry weather. When not in use it is stored in a well ventilated garage under a breathable cover hence the chassis is in very good condition for its age with very little corrosion. The bodywork is painted in RAL 2009 Traffic Orange and is overall In very good condition. There are some minor stress cracks in the grp however for an 18 year old vehicle this is to be expected. Great fun on the road and on the track,and a brilliant specification and condition Westfield for your money . As you can see from above, both the engine and gearbox have been rebuilt and a new clutch recently fitted, therefore these major components should keep the new keeper going for some time without major expenditure (many detailed photos available showing internal components during gearbox rebuild/clutch replacement) Reluctantly selling as I now require a more “practical” car with a roof and luggage space for my planned European road trip. Also Included with the sale is a number of spare parts if required including original mirrors, two spare wishbones etc. Depending on your offer I may also throw in a CTEK battery conditioner, used Halfords Advanced all weather breathable car cover and the remainder of my WSSC subscription (if you don’t already have a subscription) which I have just renewed! Located in Holmes Chapel, Cheshire Price: £8995 [SOLD - DEPOSIT TAKEN] tel: 07793218502 email: mee@hotmail.co.uk (Please note - car will be available from March)

    Looking for Megablade

    Hi Michael, my Megablade will be up for sale in the spring, it’s an 2001 893cc factory built model with a great specification! Unfortunately no reverse box but other great bits such as full caged Roll cage, quaiffe ATB, 4 Pot Westfield front callipers and AB performance bits! And it’s only covered 10,000 miles since new! Im looking for approx 9k though so let me know if you’d like further details. kind regards Paul.

    New MOT rules any one thought of doing this?

    As long as the work undertaken (ie the MOT) is paid for, regardless of pass or fail the garage has no power to seize or retain possession of your vehicle. As I understood it you would be free to remove your vehicle, if you were prevented from doing so then the garage may be committing criminal offences. If you theoretically decided to drive the vehicle away in a dangerous condition then you would commit a traffic offence, but not an issue if you trailer it etc.

    Electric Reverse Installs

    Maybe it’s worth considering whether a reverse gear is essential? I’ve had my Megablade for two years and have managed without...and it’s mostly used on the roads rather than track, you just have to think ahead when parking. I’ve only been caught out once when parking on an incline at Oulton Park...it wasn’t until I went to reverse out that I remembered, thankfully another person assisted with the push! As they are very light cars it’s easy enough to push if you need and keeps the drivetrain nice and simple with fewer parts to go wrong! Saves a little bit of weight too which is important on A BEC. Paul.

    Good luck with the new car! I’m sure you’ll love it! Like others have suggested you’re probably better getting someone to take you down, then you can drive the car back and give it a good run! I drove from Cheshire to Worcester to collect mine and my dad followed me home! You can sort out your insurance when you get there....it was a cold February day when I picked mine up...but fortunately no rain!

    Advice on what to buy

    Welcome to the Forum! The great thing about these cars is that you can adapt them to suit your tastes. Two years ago I bought a 2001 Megablade, it wasn’t the exact spec I wanted in terms of aesthetics but it was in fantastic condition and had some of the specification I wanted (4 pot brakes, Quaife ATB etc...), over the past two years I’ve spent a little bit of money on it and now it’s exactly how I want! No matter what car you get you’ll love it and make it your own! Get yourself to some of the local meets and see if you can have a ride in a few different models... heres mine when I bought it, and how it looks now...
