    Some pics before it goes...

    I'm selling the car to fund one last splurge before I have to go sensible and get an oil-burning estate!

    So I took a few pics today and thought I'd post them up here...



















    I'll be sorry to see it go as it's the ONLY car I've ever owned that I've never had itchy feet with... until now.

    I'll be getting another B5 after I have a bit of fun, so don't worry... I'll be back!

    I don't HAVE to get rid... I just fancy a bit of rear-wheel-drive 'Motorsport' action for a few months...!

    It's not really a bargain to be honest, as I've priced it for the money that I want... due to the fact that I'll not be unhappy if it doesn't sell! But... it is a very good car that (apart from a few problems brought on by me) hasn't let me down and has been great for the 18,000 miles I've covered in it!

    Obviously this isn't a 'For Sale' thread, so I don't want to turn it into that by putting prices, etc up.

    I've got my eye on a '97 M3 Evo - My Mum had two and I've always wanted one... so while I've got the chance I thought I'd have a bit of fun. It'll probably have gone by the time the A4 gets any serious interest, so it may never happen!

    Cheers dude.

    The bodywork isn't in as good a condition as you'd think. The light in the photos seems to have hidden it all pretty well... the front bumper DEFINITELY needs some paint!

    I have absolutely no qualms about selling this to anyone. I've just replaced the rear ABS sensor (hardest part was the replacing the grommet under the rear seat!) and I conditioned the leather... it's completely transformed the interior! The rear seats look like new again now. I will be sad to see it go...

    Well, it's not sold until I get the cash in my hands, but the guy on the phone said he wasn't going to haggle with my price of 3,350.

    I will probably drop 100-150 if he pushes it when he gets here this weekend... but I've just passed on an offer of 3k cash and immediate pick-up this morning over the phone too.

    I know you probably all think it's WAY over priced... but to buy a standard Sport, for say 1750 in decent nick, then do everything I've done to this, you'll spend way more than I'm selling the whole thing for (re-map/rims/suspension, inc arms & bushes/exhaust/etc.).

    To be honest, I think the way you present your car for sale definitely helps with the asking price as well. If I took shabby photos on the side of the road, then I couldn't possibly present it for sale at the price I have done.

    3,350 is definitely TQS money, without a doubt... but for every car, there's a buyer. And if mine goes for this, it's good news for other B5 owners... surely?

    Ye certainly.

    Its a good price, and its good to know that it is possible to sell these cars for more than peanuts once modified.

    Often you find that doing the suspension/remap etc simply makes the car easier to sell, rather than actually improving the money you get for it.

    LOL- Ben, I've had to step up my game to be able to keep up with your blue flying machine! Pop round any time fella (if the wife will let you!).

    I've not got a lot of bits to be honest... bonnet bra, roof bars, MAF, cruise control and a spare standard grille. They'll all be going on eBay unless someone from here wants anything.

    I've aready tried that! With no luck...

    It's a '90 964 Carrera 2 - probably about my most favourite of the 911 models... and the one I've always promised myself. He wants just shy of 13k for it though.

    Here's the replacement. Not as nice to drive round town (it's a bit of an effort compared to the Sport - but worth it).

    If/when you see it in the flesh and have a run in it... you'll understand why I bought it. And it was cheaper than my A4 sold for!

    Yeah... the buyer for mine turned out to be okay in the end.

    Here's one more pic - you'll understand why I went for it then! The bodywork is mint on it (much better than my A4 was!) and it runs beautifully.
