id guess he would want to break it, but take it to another garage get a second opinion.
It will be worth more than 500

The engine itself is probably worth 500, then all the extras.

He's trying it on mate, I've seen non turbo r32's go for 800 and that's with needing a fair bit of work to get through an MOT.

Aim for around that price.

You would barely get 500 for an RB20DET let alone a n/a RB!
