This XR3i was recovered after it's owner had been searching eBay for parts that may've been taken off his car. While searching, the following advert was found advertising an EFI CVH engine for sale.
The owner went to Wigan to view it, and called the Police after seeing his car in a half stripped state. There was at least one person arrested!
