Cheers, It doesn't look much different to 2012 so am pleased to some extent . Should look better when new parts are fitted and back together.

7 miles???
Interested to know why.... is it just an investment for you?
For me cars are to be enjoyed - I've done 1200 miles since purchase in Feb - and it would have done a lot more if not for Covid! I have it insured on 14,000 miles per year...

Not been well so haven't been able to get the car out but luckily I enjoy the coupe even when its sat in the garage. I have a limited mileage policy which is 3000 per annum but usually do around 1000 which is normally made up of travelling the country going to car shows.

I have had this car for over 20 years and did around 1000 miles a month when I first bought it. Not bought as an investment and I have spent tens of thousands looking after it so even with a high sale price I would never get anywhere near my money back.

Ah that makes sense. Hopefully you’re on the road to recovery and many more happy miles ahead?
Though not a daily I do hope to get a fair amount of enjoyable miles in it once the world returns to some semblance of normality.

I had hoped to get it t Scotland and Northumberland this year with a view of maybe taking it to the Alps next year - but at the moment I’d settle for a trip outside of my village!
