Sad to sell her !


Recommended Posts

Well after months of dithering and seemingly unsolvable problems with my car turbo I have sold her at a knock down price. She is off to Belgium to a forum enthusiast who I hope will continue her progress back to fitness. In the end I had just had enough of the problems and having to be a contorsionist at my age.

My family were keen that I get another Esprit that was in better condition but at the moment I feel it is better to put a bit of distance and try something new.

So before I get loads of insults I am now the proud owner of a BMW Z4 - low mileage 2.5 SE  with red leather interior. Goes brilliantly and it is nice to put the roof down even though my maiden drive was hardly sunny weather. Insurance with Adrian Flux hardly went up at all.

Its sad to see another car leave these shores but at least it will mean the remainder go up in price by about 2p.

Thanks to everyone on the Forum for the help and assistance over the years, you are all a brilliant bunch. However, I will be back!!!

Sad to hear, but if you're happy with the Z4, it does seem like a happy end (for now).

Maybe I'll get to see your Esprit over here in Belgium...

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.
