Unfortunely the time has come to sell Laura's Car. Its our most expensive asset and since we've got a new place together its had to be parked on the road. What we didn't realise was that on Friday & Saturday nights its the main route home through the town for the drunks and a freshly resprayed bright yellow sports car is a ticking time bomb for them to jump on or badly scratch :( Laura's had an extremely difficult year and the worrying about her car being damaged just isn't worth the extra stress as priorities have had to change.

Since we bought this car in March 2008, its been treated like royalty!

New Cambelt, alternator belt, Waterpump, Thermostat, Radiator, Radiator Cap £220

Any minor issues on the Previous MOT were fixed, but i'm that confident it'll sail through another MOT that if you pay the price of the MOT i will take on board any things myself if they need fixing so you have a full 12months

Imported in September 2006
Changed Headrest speakers for some good Infinity 4" ones
Changed front speakers for 5.25" Fusion speakers
4x45w CD Player

We are looking for £1800 with the hardtop, £1550 without.
Its an 18year old car at the end of the day so its not immaculate as if it was i'd be asking for about the 3K mark, but for what it is its superb example of an awesome little sports car that turns heads wherever go and will be sadly missed by both Laura and Myself :(

We are Based near Loughborough, Leicestershire, M1 Motorway Junction 23.
