The car has done approximately 36000 trouble free miles and has been a joy to own. I also had a Stage 1 done by Litchfields almost 2 years ago, with the addition of the K&N airfilters (so a stage "1.5" apparently) - according to Ian Litchfield should be running about 580-590bhp. Switchable maps and free upgrades in the future of course. Has the quieter Y-Pipe fitted as part of the upgrade, I don't like my cars *too* loud.

This is a May 09 car, which I purchased in July 2010 and have owned ever since.
Taxed until June 2014
MOT valid until 24th May 2014
Tyres are 4-5mm all round (Bridgestone RE070's) as advised by Kaizer at the last service in November 2013.
New brake pads 1 year ago, they were the originals that were replaced! I clearly drive it far too easy.
Nissan replaced the bellhousing in April 2012 under warranty (Ancaster Bromley NHPC).
**Please note that the car had a new instrument binnacle replaced under warranty by Nissan Ancaster Bromley NHPC on 11/04/12 at 20608 miles, so mileage reset to 0 at that point. All documented of course.**

Service history:
1145 miles 07/07/09 Motorline Nissan NHPC
4403 miles 23/09/09 Middlehurst
5310 miles 16/03/10 Middlehurst
6001 miles 27/05/10 Middlehurst
11535 miles 12/10/10 Litchfields
14734 miles 07/05/11 Litchfields
18785 miles 29/10/11 Litchfields
1122 miles 16/05/12 Litchfields
5277 miles 27/10/12 Kaizer
7439 miles 27/04/13 Kaizer
12659 miles 30/11/13 Kaizer
I have had regular wheel alignment done over the period of ownership.

Condition:
Paintwork - very good - the car has been to KDS Keltec several times for their Zaino professional treatment at considerable cost so there is virtually no swirl marks in the paint. There are a couple of minor stonechips as you would expect.
Wheels - there are some scuff marks as the car gets used! I can either have these done or the new owner may have a preferred vendor?
Inside - there is minimal wear and tear - the car has been cared for by KDS Keltec who condition and protect all the leather and plastics/door seals etc as part of the "regime".

This car has *not* had the 2012 gearbox software upgrade, mainly because I find the car smooth and easy to drive from the day when I purchased it, I haven't had any jerking or grabbing or hesitation.

The car has never been tracked or driven hard from cold. It sounds great and pulls like a train (as they all do!). It doesn't get used in the week as I live and work in London, so the majority of the mileage is long trips. Due to changing job roles and possibly moving abroad I want to find a good home for it. A very easy car to own bearing in mind the mind-blowing performance!

Price: £35,750 ono.

Pictures to follow as it is filthy at the moment and I have no facilities to clean it. I have put a call in to KDS to book it in for a valet, rather than stick it in a car wash for the sake of the pictures (it has never been in a car wash either...).

Please PM me if interested.

I also replaced all the fasteners underneath the entire car with stainless steel bolts at Kaizer a year ago, and the car is booked in for thorough clean on Wednesday this week so pics will follow then.

so whats next then? anything interesting!

Also i dont know if im seeing things but is that a veyron on the ramp?
yes KDS Keltec have some serious hardware there most of the time, but then they are by far the best detailers I have found!:)

Next? well I may be moving abroad and as the car gets used like a normal 5 series most of the time - it seems like sacrilege to have a car of this type sitting in the garage quite a lot and being driven like a pussy......(I replaced the original brake pads last year at 4 years old....) I don't want to get to the stage where I might be leaving UK and sell in a hurry, so no plans at the moment. Most of the business I do is from home or in London so I don't use it very often.....:)

I can always get another one when I know what I will be doing in the longer term!

Thanks for looking buddy.

As an update, the car is still available although there are a viewing or 2 happening in the next week or so.

I have just had the 60 month major service done including plugs and new brake hoses as well as having the solenoids cleaned and modified at Kaizer.

Just an update, the car now also has a 12 month MOT with no advisories which I didn't have time to do on the same day as the 5 year service a couple of weeks ago. I have someone coming next week to view but no deposit taken. If interested you can contact me on [email protected] - and grab yourself a lightly used honest example:)

Just to let you know that I have lowered the asking price to £34750 which has stimulated a lot of interest but as usual there are people who arrange to come see it and then don't turn up etc.

I would like for it to go to a good home, so just updating on here in case anyone in the family want a genuinely lightly-used car:D
