Quick bump....car is still for sale, £3750 takes it 👍

I do have a couple of interested parties so if it is of interest suggest PMing me quickly to avoid missing it.

So drove the car up to its new owner today, being the first properly long drive Id taken the car on was actually super impressed. Rock steady at speed, doesnt actually ride badly on decemt motorway tarmac and was actually a pretty comfortable place to while away some miles despite the exhaust etc (which isnt drony).

Reaffirmed to me a couple of times that it goes like the clappers too and although it gets a bit busy at motorway speeds due to the short gearing flip side is it pulls like a train in 6th whenever you want to speed up. Even managed 34mpg which was very respectable!

End of my time with it and probably one of the few cars ive owned I will actually properly miss.......cant say yet whether i'll own another one any time soon as I have found it rather a labour of love (and mostly to the detriment of my bank balance!) but is for sure something I would like to have again down the line......maybe a GP1 though!

Nice that you got a decent last drive out of it before handing the keys over which must have been hard to do afterwards I’m sure!
