Great condition. No rust anywhere on the body. A bit of surface rust on the bonnet catch panel. Always garaged. Never restored. Since I've owned the car i had the bumpers painted, the rest of the paint looks ok but its getting old. (some people would say it's mint but its not). No dints or door dents anywhere. Totally solid underneath. I think the roof is the original roof, It looks good but its getting old too.
The interior of the car has the ''rare'' original cream Rivage leather. Electric windows electric roof and heated seats. The seats are in great condition apart from the drivers seat base which has some cracks in it, the cracks where there when I got the car and haven't got any worse as I've always had a seat cover on. The dash looks great the only downside is the hinges on the the glove box are broke and had a repair before my ownership. It works OK so I never fixed/replaced it. The parcel shelf was missing when I got the car so I made a new one. The cream leather gear gaiter and handbrake cover look great. The original cream carpets and original cream mats are very close to mint, (I've always had over mats in the car) also the original cream tonneau roof cover looks great. The car also has a nice stereo setup.
The engine bay is good. With minimal surface rust on the engine tinware. The exhaust is a full stainless steel by Blue Fame including a stainless steel manifold . The suspension is adjustable H&R stainless coilovers with coltec top mounts. The fuel filler pipe is also stainless steel. Mechanically the car is spot on.
The car has the original Rivage 15" polished Le Castellet alloy wheels, the finish is looking a bit tired but with excellent tyres. Also BBS RS047, 9” on the back and 7” on the front, the tyres are also excellent. They are in very good condition, they look amazing.
The car is currently sat very low. It drives great but it's quite crashy over potholes. I like the look of it this low and don't really use the car much, you could raise the car up if that was what you wanted.
The car has the service book stamped up to 64,233 miles and has every MOT from new
I purchased the car on the 20/01/07 with 70,000 miles
I've owned the car for 12years.
I used the car frequently at first and less and less at time has gone on. Now I only do a couple of hundred miles a year.
It now has 121,000 miles.
Since I have owned the car it has been serviced more often than needed. It has always had the best quality parts and anything replaced that was needed. In the last 6months it had a full service a new battery the new coilovers and a new fuel pump as the old one was getting noisy. When I purchased the car it was totally standard. I've added the stainless components the suspension and the wheels as I wanted that look.
I'm only selling to fund something else, 12 years is a long time and its going to be a sad sale. The price is with both sets of wheels. I will listen to offers with and without the BBS wheels.
