    Is that your black one on Done deal Dades? Any interest so far?

    That would be mine alright.

    Chatted to one chap who subsequently made an offer, but too low for me to consider at this point. I tend to get impatient selling cars but willing to wait for the right buyer this time.

    Another offer on Adverts, but you never know whether that's just an offer to come and view and haggle some more.

    Wouldn't mind hearing your experience too, if you want to PM me. :)

    Looks like you sold it Dades. That didn't take long.

    Nice one Dades, that was good going.

    Yeah, got a call out of the blue today from a chap looking to view. He'd been to see another that wasn't up to much so swung by, and I happened to be free.

    He had a mate, a trailer, and cash, so a deal was made. He's going to do it up good I believe. Maybe not what I might have got if I'd played the waiting game, but more than I expected when I first decided to sell. Decided a bird in the hand, etc. Winter is here to stay and I really didn't want to have it sitting up all winter. :o

    Need to fork out 560 quid VRT on the Alfa this week, too!

    May as well close the thread now. Everyone that has one has sold it recently. 😀

    On the flip side there's a bunch of new owners who might need assistance. :pac:

    Forget it.. I walked away. It wouldn't start, bonnet wouldn't close properly, no handbrake, no history or evidence of it ever passing an nct... not for me

    Was mentioned here. A few replies.

    Looks in good shape.
    I'd be asking about the electrics (particularly the windows), and maybe the dashboard.

    Would definitely ask directly if it suffers from warm starting issues, as although resolvable, the resolution is not ideal and the issue can cause a real headache.

    Let us know what you hear!
