I believe so, itís had a few things done to it so Iím lead to believe itís running around 240/250 bhp. Once Iíve done a few servicing things and know itís running right, Iíll get it RRíd.

The seller apparently got let down with two non payers, so I messaged him out with eBay and we came to a deal that suited us both. The anxiety is starting rolleyes.gif We will do!

These guys

http://www.mclennansgarage.com

They look after a few of mine; they are straight-up. I've never dealt with more helpful people in the automotive business.

They are just South of IKEA, off the City Bypass- I've done you a map to contextualise it.
If you were to go with them- I'd give you a lift down and up from the station to get back.

Can you include a link to the specialist in Shawlands, Mawv..?

She started first turn of the key, burbles away. She rattles, she’s a bit whiffy, she’s loud, she pops, she bangs but for now I’m smiling!
