Very nice car, GL with sale.

Just wanted to check - you drive 2-hours to MRC every time for a check up?


Hi, many thanks.

Yes, every year! Day off work and a lot of time in Banbury coffee shops.... Luckily it's only needed work outside of the service once.

For those that have shown an interest, here are some photos of the sills/arches - I hope the photos speak for themselves.

I've never really seen a car get listed on a forum and then price going up a couple of Łgrand. If it's very keenly priced it wouldv sold by now?

I would definitely get them wheels swapped for standard.


Then start a new advert and stick to your asking price.

This is fast becoming the most notorious advert on here... sadly.

You reduce the price of something and people feel they are getting a bargain; increase the price and people feel they're being robbed. It's psychology, nothing to do with the car. I wish I'd got the price right first time!

Unfortunately, I don't have the original wheels.

Those who are unsure, just come and see the car. There's nothing to hide here!

Thanks all.

It is a cracking car fella.
Dont get hung up by the misery posters. Trust me they all 'really' want your car 'for nowt'
I bought one last year as an investment for my sons future. I cocked up using it as a dailly and an unfortunate overnight parking situation (twocers love these cars) but hey ho.
Pounds in the bank are worthless interest wise at present.
If you dont have to sell DONT.
Keep it safe and keep using MRC.
In 5 yrs your car will command Ł40k+. More than twice your asking now.
PS your wheels look much nicer than my boleros on my tqs.
Regards
Simon
