and this is why we don't sell the cars directly after the show :laughing2

One of those rare panel filters that never get used, especially in this car.

The only car I have ever owned where it had a filter installed is the OG 25X, fitted them to a load of others though. :laughing2

After reviewing the overall condition of the car, especially the paintwork and short MOT, plus the amount we are likely to be able to sell the car for we decided that an ebay auction would be not the best way to sell it.

Prospective buyers who had not seen the car 'in the metal' were likely to walk away or want a reduction. eBay fees would swallow a significant chunk, if not all, of the profit.

We advertised the car at POL with a target price of £695 and asked for offers. The highest we got was £750.

If anybody would like to better that offer.... :cool

The car needs to go by the end of the month so we can stop paying road tax.
