Post by: ianu on 21 July 2017, 22:11:24

Ultra rare Black Sapphire  8)
215,400 miles  ;)
It's this car with these wheels on:
Refurbished Elite wheels with customised centre caps.  :y

I'll get some new pictures up as soon as I can this weekend, but it still looks like this except with the different wheels.
New Vredestein Quadtrac tyres v.good condition  :y. These are normally my winter set of wheels so only went on last year and I still have them on at the moment.
Recent work was a full brake service  :o. The fronts had been on it since I bought the car fist time round.
Custom built stainless exhaust, single tailpipe, sounds lovely.  8)
All the Elite bits including rear blind coutesy of PaulS's ownership.  :y
Poly bush fr/wishbones courtesy of PaulS too.  :y

Cambelt done @ 173k (2014)
Last oil/filter Service November 2016 @202,450
Full brake service fr/r disks/pads/shoes May 2017 @ 211,703
MOT until 24th Feb 2018

Honesty box:
Drivers heated seat - toast  :-\
Air con - toast.  :-\
Rust starting to re-appear in the usual places - on the rear wings above the arches and door shuts. ???
The Bose CD changer is starting to play up, it seems to ignore 1 & 3 for some reason now. >:(
Accumulated car park dings and motorway gravel rash starting to re-appear. >:(
As far as I can recall, everything else works.
I've been using it to commute into London most days since April last year, it drives beautifully still, and can still go like a stuck pig - but I dont drive it like that..honest  :y

This car is fairly well known on the forum, it has pretty much every bill since new, and has been owned twice by me it's that good.
PaulS has owned it inbetween my 2 sessions. :y
Lovingly polished and attended. 8)

I need to make room for my mid life crisis V8 unfortunately. :-*
I realise the mileage is high, but it genuinely doesn't show it and feels like it'd do another 100k. :y I genuinely do not have any worries about it mechanically. The last major item that needed doing was the brakes, they couldn't really wait any longer. So apart from other 'maintenance' items, I think we're good  :)

I'm after 475 o.v.n.o - it needs to go or it'll end up in bits.

(reg not included so it'll return to its original 03 plate)

Cheers
Ian.

If I hold off the transfer and put it on retention - I dont know if that would speed it up? Anyone know about these things on here?
I can put it on the other vehicle later perhaps.
