Damn, that's a lot of car for the money! Didn't see that coming, what you thinking of replacing it with?

And having been in the car and had a wee drive, its a cracking car!

Best of luck with the sale!

Aye, prices continue to tumble and cars needs to be priced keenly to sell in this climate. I paid double the current sale price a year and a half ago but needs must. While the 8 is one of the most practical sports coupes on the market, we need a 5 door for tipping around town.

Congrats CJ, not an easy time to sell a car, so well done. It was a bargain IMO though.

Not gone to anybody connected to this site by any chance?
