Very nice car (great colour combo!), but seems right at the very top end of the S50 market and i'm not sure thats just.

Surely you could have saved yourself a grand or so and just trained you're right foot to not be so heavy instead of the TC?

Good luck with the sale, also noticed it on PH :)

The Racelogic is completely different to BMWs traction control effort and is apparently a good "toy" to have as it allows varying degrees of slip, can be used as launch control etc and would allow easy fast driving, particularly in damp conditions.

I've seen this on other cars, and I completly agree with you for launch control etc etc, i was more refering to the fact that most people buy the MC's for a raw driving experience and not sure you could incorporate the TC cost into the sale price. I could be wrong!

I think modifications cannot be included in the sale price up to a point, but when someone like Lee has spent ten's of thousands on modifications, asking a couple of grand extra for a properly set up track/road car is still a damn good bargain!

I think Neil has a good point though as I wouldn't ask anymore for my car now just because I have just put ARB's on it!
