I have had the terrible run-flat tyres replaced with some fresh Falken ZE912's around 4 months ago which means the car handles much better and the ride is smoother. I have also had a KAVS Motorpsort 15% reduced supercharger pulley and belt fitted by 1320Mini, along with an oil and spark plug change last month. The pulley has pushed the car from 163BHP to 170BHP (full Dyno printout with figures to prove from 1320Mini) and encourages the supercharger to kick in earlier. The whine and added performance are now extremely addictive! Receipt and printouts included with the sale for proof.

The bodywork is in great condition, with only a couple of marks/blemishes which is to be expected for a 10/11 year old car. No rot or rust whatsoever, and no dents or dings. Everything on the car works as it should, and everything is completely intact. The interior is fantastic, not much wear to the leather seats at all (absolutely none to the rear seats). The only wear on the interior is a little to the steering wheel, and some surface wear to the inner door grab handles and central downtubes but this is common. The Satellite Navigation works fantastically and has been updated to the latest 2013 maps, and works in conjunction with the CD player and additional 6-cd changer in the boot.

I have also kept every bit of paperwork for items I have spent on the car, along with every fuel receipt since owning the car to show it has only ever been run on super-unleaded. This is something I do with all of my cars, as it's a good habit and shows the vehicle has been cared for with the best fuel available. I've loved every minute of driving this, however I'm looking for something a little more executive/professional/grown-up due to my job becoming increasingly more client-orientated. I would keep this, but the job forces me in other directions unfortunately.

Pricewise, I want £3500 for a straight sale.
I originally paid £3800 for this back in July when the mileage was showing 92K, and since then with the replacement pulley, belt and extras, the car has had a further £800+ being spent on it to maintain its condition. Well worth the asking price for this condition.

Interested in Part-ex too (cash either way/straight exchange)
Audi TT 225 Coupe, BMW 330Ci Sport Coupe, Audi S3, BMW 530i Sport.
Needs to have some poke, preferably unmodified, manual gearbox, and look presentable.

Located in Soham, Cambridgeshire.

Willing to listen to offers and negotiations on this.
Been offered part-exchange from a local garage, but would rather see this go to an enthusiast or someone that will enjoy it!
Now down to £3250.

Roll up, roll up!
Seems very reasonably priced to me!

Good luck with the sale!!

Cheers mate!
It really is a lovely little car, but I just need something that looks a bit "smarmy" for the new role.

Do love BRG though :)
I agree, BRG is a great colour.

You need an R53 again mate.

I know but Im not rushing in to buy the first thing I see - when I get one it will be the right one for what I have planned and no offence to the seller here but this isn't that car... :)

Pipe down and fit some coilovers :laugh:
