Best I managed was £50 "winnings" when a buyer failed to turn up and collect an old XT500 thumper, they said they were arranging a van after they paid their deposit, never heard from them again :mad:

Looks like it's on 14s still, did you go for that size for ride purposes or are they are in fact 15s?

Please do us a final shot before it goes Mick...

they are 14's i bought them from a mate so didn't break the bank at £80 2yrs ago , it arrived on steels with wheel trims so they had to go ... only 14's but all good tyres and a full set of centre caps , they look better on the car than £200 in my pocket and the car back on steels and wheel trims :D

down to the final stages now the bonnet and wings are all flatted and polished , i'll button it up early next week and it'll go for an mot as soon as i can arrange that ready for it's viewing mid sept .

[quote="martauto"]Just dont know what people require these days ?
A few beer tokens why i man ?

Mart.[/quote

It's a mint car which is why I left a deposit but like mick said I originally set out to buy a 2dr and last week I was offered a pretty nice 2dr 18iS so I contacted mick telling him such. I knew he wouldn't have any trouble selling it and I was even still thinking about buying it when i get back from the US if he still has it.

give me a shout mate but i do have another buyer on 12th sept travelling from down essex way and another buyer wanting to leave a deposit if i can store it a bit while he sells one of his cars , rule of thumb is first one to arrive with cash money drives it home :D

Hey Mick, Finally got back onto the Zone lol.

Looks every bit as good as you said on the phone, looking forward to driving it 6 hours home on monday night 8O 8O

I actually commented on the first page of this thread in 2016 when I had my old 318iS which is pretty funny

Cheers.
