They must be getting a bit niffy by now G

There was a nice NMY with low mileage on Scumtree just down the road from me (£6.5 k) but it seems to have disappeared today :?

Spotted this earlier G but someone put a deposit on it yesterday? I was hoping to view it myself :( The dealer said it was a guy who had a few Elans previous not you by chance ? :poke:

Thought so too Kathryn, Guy was a bit sketchy about the service history but said it had full history upto 2012 :roll: and said the car had just been pulled out of storage without any kind of works on the brakes/cam belt etc I would dare drive it :( I’m next in the que, so if it falls through yall be going on my behalf :lol:

I recon someone might have tried to mess around with the clocks looking at the speedo cluster surround, and with the shady service history who know what the mileage is :roll: .. you must have not have left your name and number if that guy fell through as he’s going to ring me next he say.... if your still interested and he rings I’ll let you know

Oh he said to me he’s coming Wednesday

Spoke to the guy this afternoon, nice chap names Charlie up in Glasgow

Car in storage and has been for 3 years, not the guy who bought it back in 2007 though . Has a mountain of service history but nothing recent, needs paint on front end,rear bumper and boot lid unfortunately roof has a small tear. Doesn’t have the original S2 alloys either plus he was the one to have it retrimmed :shock: I didn’t comment.. you know how we love our original interiors!

Sounds like it’s not been shown a spanner in years, he said it’s solid underneath but with those recommission costs?
