Our Steetka failed MOT on Anti-Roll bar bushes, the rattle that we had previously then disappeared.

In Topic: Streetka Hardtop Brackets

Can't quite remember what the top bolt does -I usually keep adjusting both until the rattling stops! However there will always seem to be a gap between the metal of the hardtop and the car as the rubber seal sits inside a little and this is what touches the car.

I managed to spray paint both the grilles without removing them with satin black paint. Just undid the top bumper screws an pulled bumper away enough to squeeze some card behind to mask off the radiator, and similar making for lower grille, then just masked around edge and sprayed like that. Looked perfect and only took 30 mins.

I don't think there is anything particularly out of the ordinary to look out for that would cause any serious worries that you would not look out for on any used car of that mileage. I would check that the heater works hot and cold, although a new control valve isn't a big job to replace. Air con working was a bit hit and miss on the ones I looked at. Wheels can buckle quite easily, so check for any knocks on the inside particularly. Rust is no where the issue it is with the regular Ka, just play close attention to the bottom of the doors. You already know about the door handles.

As it's going to be cold tomorrow, be very careful dropping the roof as the plastic screen can crak if not careful.

It does seem like a very low geared close ratio box, but I have never noticed ours making any noise though.
