EX Kier's SE pistachio on pistonheads (DEAD LINK)

Postby mjoshyuk » Fri 21.04.2017, 01:02

Hi All
I'm new to this site
I was after a lotus elan and saw this green one on pistonheads
Does anybody know the car
It seems too cheap- is it the colour, 115k on the clock or is it hiding something
Any help would be appreciated

I think you'll find that Kier's ex car has done significantly more mileage than 11,000 miles which the advert states :shock: Probably at least 100,000 more !! And as for just getting the car in last week, it was probably last week, last year more like ! And, as a dealer, he has to offer some sort of warranty :o

This car was bought very cheaply from Kier a few years ago and has been punted around from pillar to post by wide boy dealers looking for a quick buck !!

Kier had the car sprayed Pistachio green under his stewardship. Original colour was grey

You will get a much better car for the money by looking under LEC UK cars for sale.

Poor thing has been wandering aimlessly for over a year now ?

Hope it pops up again soon with a new owner .. not punted on to another dealer .

Price seems to have gone up again. I think current owners think they can turn them over quickly and make a quick buck :?

The vendor cant even be bothered saying much about his car either :?

Awwwww poor car. I'm just trying to find the link from last year when it sold at auction, as I'm not sure if that was before it was for sale at JGM sports for £4499 or after? I'll keep looking.

I wish I'd seen it when it was at auction. I'm always suspicious of sellers on ebay with zero feedback too. :|

Edit:

Ahhhhhhhh here it is, sold for £3000 according to the page I've linked, that page was last updated 26-04-2017 which was around the same time JGM advertised and sold it.

http://bay2car.com/1990-LOTUS-ELAN-M100 ... /car133332

I assume that was what JGM paid for it and sold it on, or maybe bay2car isn't very reliable? I only stumbled across that site through some searching.
