The First Is 200S - Are Any Old Bangers Yet?

Most 11 year old cars have drifted into the Old Banger category, shifted from back-street lots. I have never seen a neglected or tatty IS 200/300 that looked like one - unlike plenty of Fords, Vauxhalls, Peugots etc. Have you? Pictures please if you have.

My IS200 is 10 years old now and its got a few battle scars- mainly the stonechipped bonnet and front bumper. It's to be expected on a car that's done 139k now- my car spends most of its time on the motorway.

I'm in 2 minds whether to replace it or to have the bonnet and front bumper resprayed...

I would. An expensive Body-shop in this area would charge £500 or less for a first-class, guaranteed job - and what else can you buy for reasonable money that is going please you as much as what you have got....It would look smart for now, and when you eventually sell, although it might not up the price; it will be easier to shift.
