Sad, sad news everyone. The 213S is dead. cry

The chap who bought it from my mate Kev' lied about his intentions and the car will be banger raced tomorrow night at the Norfolk Arena, King's Lynn. Lucky I'm working because I would have organised a lynch mob if not. furious

Bad news - one fewer on the roads.

Still got mine, but it hasn't progressed much!

The SD3 rally car didn't make reserve (my budget at least) and is relisted for £3,000

yikes

Good luck with that I bought this...



...late model 620Ti instead. smile

1999 means a few things.

1/ The EU stuck their noses in making it compulsory for cars to have auxiliary brake lights. As it's mounted at the bottom of the rear screen the 620Ti no longer had the rear spoiler.
2/ BMW bean counters meant that when the 620Ti badges ran out no more were bought so my car has a plain Jane "600" one.
3/ Front fog lights instead of brake ducts on the bumper, rear head rests and colour coded door handles and side skirts.

I like a good "Q" car and this is one of the best. Unless you are a real anorak you would not know this was a Ti until you tried to keep up with it. hehe

Nice find.

Must get mine MOTed (only been laid up for 5 yrs).

Standard 16 wheels, or 17 Vitty Sports ? (can't tell from the angle).

You can still fit the boot lip spoiler and see the "high level" brake light.

Always thought it nicer to have the non-distinguishing "600" badge rather than "620 Ti" (not that (m)any would have realised what it meant anyway).

What colour ? Looks green; BRG or Epsom green (but could be lighting)

Standard 16's (for now) and Racing Green 2 code COB

I have to admit I did look at the spoiler on my dead MG ZT before I sent it away but with 75,000 miles on the clock and good general condition is it worth faffing about with the 600?

I bought the car with much the same goals as my 213S family wagon with classic insurance, but this time the factory tow bar was essential so I can build a dedicated track day car instead of taking my daily and therefore taking it easy so I don't blow the thing up. wink
