I did, but it was an option of fitting a tatty slot or a brand new front nose, I did regret after as it looses a big chunk of Mantaness  BUT it was a new nose with NO rust :-)

£9000!!!! Buy now!! Your having a laugh. I am sorry but that grill is horrid on that and I never knew Irmscher did a hatch spoiler 😬

Its had a lot spent on it, good luck to the seller but realistically I struggle to see £5500 for it. Modified Manta's are a nightmare to sell!

Genuine Irmscher spoiler - learn something new everyday :-)

Was no nightmare to sell when I owned it  :D

The reg looks awfully familiar, this might be the Manta GT/E auto Simon Downs ( Stonymanta on here ) and myself collected from a lock-upgarage in North (East ?) London many years ago.

I've learnt from experience that you only put that kind of cash into a car you intend on keeping. It's a lovely manta, and with a few tweaks (nose cone being the first) it will make someone a great toy!!
