IF he got £7995 then that's a good sign... :wink:

Looks great in white with the Toyota wheels and narrow body. A classic early configuration so should be a keeper. :)

It was on the market for a while. I saw the advert a good 2 months ago on various sites, but it didn't fit what I was looking for.
Did you notice the state of the dash in the video? Must be all that sunshine in Hull that finished it off.
What goes together.... Must come apart.

I was looking for the active ride Excel but this was the nearest I could get to it. Interesting tho. Its a pity it ended up on a scorpion tank system.

On a mission to find the airspeed velocity of a european swallow.

I've seen that before Bash - good isn't it? One car I've always fancied is the coupe version of my Mercedes S350 - the CL - it has active suspension, but everyone I've talked to about it says you need very deep pockets to keep the suspension working after the first 50k miles. Shame.
