This car spent a lot of its early life on the south coast of England and the Isle of Man, and was in storage for a while between 2014 and 2018.
This probably accounts for the excellent condition of the bodywork and the fact it hasn't succumbed to usual issue of rusty rear arches.
Overall the paintwork is superb for a car of this age with only very minor marks here and there.

Engine
Over the past few months I've had a local specialist carry out quite a lot of preventative maintenance on the car, as I fully intended keeping the car for the foreseeable future. The following has been carried out recently:
Replace power steering pipes and fluid - £420
Relplace rear discs, pads and handbrake cable - £261
Sump dropped and cleaned, oil strainer cleaned then refitted with new O rings and sealant. Flushed then refilled with fresh oil and filter - £393
New battery fitted - £115

It passed its Mot on 28.10.20 with 2 advisories, a slight oil leak and a tyre nearing the limit. I spoke to the mechanic and he says there is evidence of some leakage but its very slight and difficult to say where from. They are duty bound to mention it though. The car certainly uses no oil and there are no spots on the ground where the car is always parked, so it must me very slight.

I'm not a fan of replacing a single tyre so I'll replace both rear tyres this week with a premium brand.

The service book is stamped with 13 stamps, the last being just a few hundred miles ago.

Two remote keys supplied with the car.

The double Y alloys are in superb condition.

Interior
The interior has the beautiful 'turbo' embossed black leather seats that are in wonderful condition. The fronts are heated with full electric adjustment. The original radio/cd player works as it should as does the electric aerial. The car is also fitted with cruise control.

There are a couple of pixels missing on the LCD information display but I have two spare units that will be supplied with the car, along with a spare LCD air con display.

I also have a spare steering wheel
. The one in the car has perforated leather, the spare has plain leather.

Modifications
The only modifications to the car are 35mm lowering springs and a stainless steel rear silencer. However the original springs and silencer will be supplied.

These cars are getting very difficult to find in this condition. I had intended to store this away for the winter but losing my lock up means I regretfully need to put it up for sale.

Yes you will find cheaper aeros on the market, but I think you will struggle to find one as good as this, or that doesn't need a fortune spent on it.

Feel free to contact me to discuss the car or arrange a viewing.
