Hi Joel
Thats a terrible loss, its a lovely looking car. I do hope it does not get broken up for parts.
Will keep my eyes open for it when I'm up and down the motorway.
I am absolutely certain it will not escape the community if someone tries to sell it.
good luck

1596 trouble free miles, I think the car runs better now in fact after a good run. £269-50 in fuel – some of it was the 100 ron stuff, but I didn’t notice any difference in performance, maybe I wasn’t trying hard enough.
