FS eBay 216 K series Cabriolet 1996 27K miles Green

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1996-Spares- ... %7Ciid%3A1

In Polesworth, Warwickshire. BRG with beige full leather interior.

It was posted on the R8 Enthusiast(s) Facebook page over Christmas so they've had it c 3 months at least. Price on the screen is 3.5K waiting to see what the reserve is but the way the bidding is going doesn't look like it will be reached before the auction ends this Friday at 19:15.

Anyone been to see this one....? Description as spares and repairs doesn't sound promising but all their cars below a certain value seem to have that caveat.

Having viewed it today I expect the only reason it hasn't sold yet is the price! They don't let you test drive but you can trundle it round the car park...

Clutch is a bit high and tyres are a mix and perishing. In very good shape generally though, looks better than in the photos.

To be relisted next week apparently.

Despite mine not having leather I suspect 1234dist will agree its only marginally more tidy than mine
and I paid about £300 for it with MOT.

Well the bidders to last Friday clearly didn't think it's worth more than 797 still not breaking reserve.

It's back again.
Advertised with MoT, but as salvage spares or repairs.

"This vehicle is trailer collection only, or we can deliver"
:headbanging

But looking at their other sales it's just their cautious policy.

I was only allowed to trundle it round the car park but it seemed fine apart from the somewhat high clutch...forgot to test the leccy roof though. All gears go in OK and brakes pull it up (reasonably) sharply, steering seems straight. Started very easily and runs smoothly (but seems to be a bit of a blow/noise possibly from flexipipe???). Very clean under the bonnet.

Looks like they've put it on an age related plate now as H10 BEV comes up as not allocated.

There is rust on the NSF corner sill though and it's starting on other areas around the sills.

Coolant level at the min mark, could do with changing but no oil in it.
