as said above this does not mean i am going to sell the car, just gathering interest and at the end of the day every car has its price.
the car does still need work doing, its still being run in at the mo with a setup from jano imminent and a frount mount intercooler and air injectors are on the cards too.

I know where ya coming from Bill everything has a price 8)

I would never sell yours for less than 8k though although it'll be mega hard to sell it for that hence your best keeping it 8)
