I bought this car new in May 1998 and have owned it ever since. It has never been used for commuting, only weekends and other longer journeys.

Known technical issues: It needs new front tyres. The airbag warning light is permanently lit (it's blanked off so not visible) since nobody has ever managed to reset the ECU. The driver's side window sticks a bit when closing. Fuel injection warning light (very) occasionally lights up - ECU says one of the coolant temperature sensors gives a duff signal and needs replacing at the next service. A simple restart of the engine makes it go away.

Generally very good condition inside and out as it had a full bodywork and wheel restoration and respray in 2016 by DTR Sports Cars in Coulsden. There's a minor scuff on the rear nearside wing (gifted to me while it was parked on the street) and a little rust on the metalwork behind the front grill. I have all three keys.

Full service history since new. Recent work includes: new aircon pipes, dryer and condenser; a new nearside front wishbone; new rear tyres; new brake master cylinder and clutch slave cylinder; new fuel feed pipe; and in 2018 a new cambelt and new oil cooler hoses.

Modifications: Apart from the original Clarion radio having been replaced with a Sony CD/radio, and it having wider tyres than stock (225/45R16 Yokohama Advan Neova AD08R) it's basically standard factory spec.
