Hmm... dunno about the colour! It's one of those colours that I'd think "wow" as it went past, but not sure if I'd actually want to own it!

Dear James

OK i will give you 3 good Reasons why you shud not?

1. I want it.
2. no A/C.
3. No engine rebuild the owner says it's(ok) it do's not need one???
and the car runs fine???

4. he has had the car from march i think?? and the 4th owner.

and remember it's comeing up to 8 years old?

I may self dont want to spend more that 15k on a tvr so let's say 5k for rebuild just in case.
and 10k for the owner ok let's make it 10.600 pounds and thats a good offer i think???

with top+low end engine rebuilt for 11500 BPS.
All invoices (Repairs within last 2 years)for total 10500 Bps checked and bought via Ebay!

Wait for your chance and only buy if you have
a good feeling!

Looking at a 2005 T2S, does the guide still apply?

remember to make sure the front uprights have been changed via the recall. The way to tell is that there will be a note on the vin plate and the front brake calipers will just have TVR on, if they have AP as well they have not been done.

I always thought he drove a Honda.

You are right. It said somewhere in the bible that he 'arrived by his own accord' didn't it?

But was that Jesus or God? Dunno....
No, God burnt up the desert in his Triumph!

Looking to a Tuscan purchase in the near future, I've downloaded the Tuscan Buying Checklist from www.mytuscan.co.uk

That version is of 21/03/2005, is this the most recent version? I also tried www.carfurniture.co.uk but that site seems to be out of the air.

Thanks in advance!

Looking but still just a dream. The only one for sale I have seen in the state in the last 12 months was an early 00's and was up for 66000 AUD. Still a fair bit more depreciation to go before I can justify the expenditure.http://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/imgs/12.gif
