Looks like a very nice example :cool:

If it had been an estate (and I didn’t already own one!) I’d have been tempted :thumb:

Looks like the wheels have been refurbished in body colour/diamond cut as opposed to Himalaya grey? Looks quite smart IMHO - I’ll probably stick with OE colours myself but it does tempt me slightly (designo platinum black metallic with diamond cut face/lip)..hmm :)

I think the present owner quite likes it...

Nigh on two years' Tier 1 warranty will certainly help the value, though personally, at that low a mileage I'd be inclined to take a chance on a car without a warranty. It's not to my individual taste - for me, wrong colour and naff wheels - but it will undoubtedly be a good buy for somebody.

The owner has obviously fallen on hard times; let's hope things improve for him.

Bloody hell that's been washed!

Engine bay could do with a rinse though.

I think that goes without saying - a bit of waffle but probably par for the course on an enthusiast owned/specialist vehicle?

Not sure on the wheels, I’d probably stick with original colour myself but they’re not kerbed and look in good nick - if you wanted to repaint them back to Himalaya grey it wouldn’t be an expensive job. At £5.5k a set without tyres I’d say the color of the recesses would be the least of my concerns :thumb:

Regards the warranty - yes higher mileage cars might have more problems generally, but that doesn’t mean the warranty wouldn’t be worth having. After all, mine needed a £1k+ headlight replacement at only 11k miles - I guess it’s peace of mind if not worth loads extra price wise when buying/selling :cool:

Is that a really down at heel golf club? :p

I like it, especially in black. With a de-badge and slight exhaust tinker it would look little different to any Heathrow taxi :cool:
