Hello Simon, hope you are well mate.
No messages have come through, thought my inbox was quiet, wonder if there is a problem?
Anyway I am happy to say the Coupe has been taken on by my son, once dad had put it through the mot of course and spent time on it that I didn't have hence the reason for sale in the first place!!
Once I had changed a rear caliper, replaced front brake pads, replaced lower ball joints (thanks Steve) and had it tracked it had a fresh ticket and drives beautifully.
You in the market for another one?

I've only just read through your original thread re your S-reg blue coupe. I have been away from the forum for sometime as well. Good to hear that the car is in good hands now; all's well, ends well.

Thanks Charles, yeah glad it is staying close, but the parts I had to throw away during the move was criminal to be honest.

No Matt, aint happening, but whilst you are here I do have a front and rear silver bumper off that car you had the TWR kit off, so no bumper inserts in other wards, yours if you want them. I see your car collection continues to grow!!
