FS, Ebay - 416GSi manual, 18K, H reg. £995 - Harlow

Another R8 bargain:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ROVER-416-GSI/202575866049

Nice early car with the much coveted Prussian Blue interior, Rachelle (?? apologies for the spelling) seat fabric and the part-bolster design. Silly mileage, and rare in a manual. Bumpers and mudflaps need some attention (probably wurth dye if the discolouration is as bad as it looks) and possibly the upholstery on the driver's chair and rear bench needs pulling tight again. Also noticed the bright blue rear seat belt clasp holders in the rear squab - presumably the effects of sunlight or an inappropriate cleaning agent. These could be sprayed back to the right colour, however. After that, without seeing the engine bay or underneath, I'm struggling to find anything more than a few half-hour jobs this car needs.

Edited: The lacquer is off the boot, so it's probably been parked under cover with the back end sticking out. Explains the sunlight damaged clasp holders on the rear squab. So a partial/panel respray but not much more I would have thought - although there's no visibility of the roof in any of the photos. Rear window to quarter light finisher strip is 2/3rds broken and missing on the near-side, and the front seat belt hasps on the belts are also bright blue (sunlight again). Still all fixable though.

Urban environments do not seem to suit the R8!

I'll get some up later on after I am back from work. She's rough (cosmetically) but she drives a dream! Currently half way through doing the timing belt

I would disagree with that statement about the R8 not being suited to urban environments mine has no sun issues and that's been on a drive without protection. Like the only paint damage was caused by some one who keyed the bonnet
