I'd say be wary of the 30k car that is no better than a 20k one and don't discount cars with slightly higher mileages.

23-25k can get you a quite nice s50 at the moment, 30 should get you an...

Non pictorial update for now.

I've got some new side skirts which are away being painted up.

Apart from the side stripes, I actually quite like the look of that.

Pricing wise it's a lot but makes more sense to me than some other crazy asking prices, based upon rarity etc

Wonder whether...

I'm tempted to put a different plate on my M Coupe if I can find a nice one.

Pure Folly I know, but could be tempted by a nice one, does anyone have anything on retention or that they would like...

Hate changing brake flexis, the anticipation of that lovely moment where the ferule gets stuck and you B@@ger up the hard line as it twists!

Is it a 45k-50k in today’s market?
