    Selling a lovely Trophy number 491 (78k miles) as I simply need a bigger vehicle, much as I love it.

    The car is in excellent original condition overall and has fantastic, full service history, including a file with loads of invoices and all previous MOTs. The interior, particularly the Recaros are excellent and the original alloys are virtually unmarked.

    New MOT valid until August 2018. Just serviced at Two Techs, including a check of the Sachs dampers. These were refurbished in 2013 and declared "bone dry" at the service. Previously had over £2,000 spend at Mark Fish early last year, so really is in excellent mechanical order. Cambelt service was done in November 2016.

    4 previous owners. 2 keys.

    All factory standard as far as I'm aware, apart from addition of Scorpion 192 exhaust and xenons.

    Very good PS3s up front. Rears are Avons.

    Only notable bad point is a small patch of flaked paint on the driver side front wing (see image) and the usual stone chips on the bonnet. Very eye catching and the paintwork is otherwise really quite good.

    Please see images below.

    Priced - I hope - realistically for a quick sale as I will very soon have two cars...

    All enqiries and inspections welcome. Car is in North London.

    Price reduced to £6,000.

    Must go this week as I've purchased its replacement. Will someone have it? Surely a bargain at this price.

    That's worth every penny. Pity you couldn't sit on it.

    Starting to think I've played a part in lowering the value of these fantastic car by asking too little for mine. Values will soon rebound when next spring comes around.

    As it shouldn't. No doubt not helped with the time of year but I'd keep that over the winter if it comes to it.

    Hi mate, what condition are the seats in, looks like a mark/hole on rear bench, any where on fronts. Cheers

    Come on. Even if the seats are ripped to shreds, it’s priced very well and a rear bench will cost peanuts to buy a replacement.

    Still didn't answer my question, my rear bench had some burn holes in and renault wanted £360 just for the fabric hardly peanuts that's without someone fitting them. It's was a simple question not a dig at the price, which is reasonable.

    You can buy used benches very cheap and they’re very easy to fit.

    I have just been given a rear bench free of charge and not a mark on it.

    I have to say finding a good rear bench i have found hard. I was told the 1.2 had them but all the ones I have seen are split folding not benches. Plus 182 Cup breakers are wising up that the fronts are worthless but the rears are trophy parts.

    I went down the split fold route from a 182 was dirt cheap for a mint set at £40, but hated it not being standard and was bugging me every time I looked at it. Kept the bench and went with car when I sold it, I'm still none the wiser what the marks are on the rear seat, someone might have to travel along way to view it So would like a good idea of the condition before they part with there money for a £100 train ticket to go have a look and drive it home.
