[color=#282828;][font="helvetica, sans-serif;"]Due to increasing house renovation costs I've sadly decided to sell my 2003 NA.  I bought the car on the 18th July 2014 from another .org member and have done about 3K miles in that time.  The car literally only just turned over 30K last week (30,250).  I was told the car had never been tracked by any of the previous owners and I've never tracked it either - fairly obvious from the condition.  It has always been garaged and on the odd occasion it's been out over night during the summer it has been under a fully fitted car cover (included in the price).  It has a full service history and I have all bills and MOT's to confirm the mileage and any work that has been done, along with a fully stamped service book (I just need Matt Bentley to stamp for the service he did last year but will get this done before sale - I have the receipt).  I never ever use this car in the wet and I was assured by the previous owner that he and the owner before never had either.  It has very clearly never been left out or used in the rain which can be seen from the engine bay condition as well as the condition underneath.  Matt Bentley says this is one of the best he has seen.[/color][/font]

 

[color=#282828;][font="helvetica, sans-serif;"]The specification is completely standard except for the following low key modifications:[/color][/font]

[color=#282828;][font="symbol;"]·         [/color][/font][color=#282828;][font="helvetica, sans-serif;"]Unmarked Team Dynamics 16/17 TD1.2's in anthracite[/color][/font]

[color=#282828;][font="symbol;"]·         [/color][/font][color=#282828;][font="helvetica, sans-serif;"]Larini cat back exhaust - fitted last year (about 500 miles ago - probably less)[/color][/font]

[color=#282828;][font="symbol;"]·         [/color][/font][color=#282828;][font="helvetica, sans-serif;"]Tat short round diffuser (I have the standard rear diffuser which I will include in the price)[/color][/font]

[color=#282828;][font="symbol;"]·         [/color][/font][color=#282828;][font="helvetica, sans-serif;"]Front lowering brackets (to fill the arch gap you get with the 16" fronts)[/color][/font]

[color=#282828;][font="symbol;"]·         [/color][/font][color=#282828;][font="helvetica, sans-serif;"]Black V - done by previous owner and looks perfect[/color][/font]

[color=#282828;][font="symbol;"]·         [/color][/font][color=#282828;][font="helvetica, sans-serif;"]Carbon fibre front splitters[/color][/font]

 

[color=#282828;][font="helvetica, sans-serif;"]Condition:[/color][/font]

[color=#282828;][font="symbol;"]·         [/color][/font][color=#282828;][font="helvetica, sans-serif;"]Paintwork is two pack yellow and is stunning and original with a few small stone chips to the front clam and virtually no other noticeable marks and no fading[/color][/font]

[color=#282828;][font="symbol;"]·         [/color][/font][color=#282828;][font="helvetica, sans-serif;"]Seats are good with slight wear to the drivers side from entry and exit - where they all wear[/color][/font]

[color=#282828;][font="symbol;"]·         [/color][/font][color=#282828;][font="helvetica, sans-serif;"]Roof is in excellent condition - the plastic cover on one side has lifted very slightly and just needs fixing down - not really noticeable, the fabric is unmarked[/color][/font]

[color=#282828;][font="symbol;"]·         [/color][/font][color=#282828;][font="helvetica, sans-serif;"]Engine bay is in excellent condition and has clearly not been exposed to the elements.  Matt Bentley fitted a new header tank last year to be on the safe side[/color][/font]

[color=#282828;][font="symbol;"]·         [/color][/font][color=#282828;][font="helvetica, sans-serif;"]Had standard Bilstein dampers fitted by Matt Bentley in 2014[/color][/font]

[color=#282828;][font="symbol;"]·         [/color][/font][color=#282828;][font="helvetica, sans-serif;"]The plastic sill cover on the drivers side has cracked in a couple of places but has been neatly repaired. [/color][/font]

[color=#282828;][font="symbol;"]·         [/color][/font][color=#282828;][font="helvetica, sans-serif;"]The silver centre console is probably the worst bit on the car with scuff marks around the seat belt clips but I’m planning to get this redone before sale[/color][/font]

[color=#282828;][font="symbol;"]·         [/color][/font][color=#282828;][font="helvetica, sans-serif;"]Full geo done by Matt Bentley last year - the handling is absolutely amazing now[/color][/font]

[color=#282828;][font="symbol;"]·         [/color][/font][color=#282828;][font="helvetica, sans-serif;"]New Bosch battery fitted last year[/color][/font]

[color=#282828;][font="symbol;"]·         [/color][/font][color=#282828;][font="helvetica, sans-serif;"]Engine runs beautifully and pulls strongly with no smoke or nasty noises[/color][/font]

[color=#282828;][font="symbol;"]·         [/color][/font][color=#282828;][font="helvetica, sans-serif;"]Tyres are all good – Bridgestone Potenza Adrenalin RE002’s all round[/color][/font]

 

[color=#282828;][font="helvetica, sans-serif;"]If you are looking for a standard car then I have the original standard diffuser and exhaust – both in excellent condition, and am happy to fit these along with standard NA wheels (I will retain the upgrade parts).[/color][/font]

 

[color=#282828;][font="helvetica, sans-serif;"]The car is located in Welwyn in Hertfordshire.  I don't think there can be many in this condition and will not disappoint so I'm looking for £12,250 which is cheaper than others I’ve seen advertised.  I’d like this to go to a .org member so will hold off posting on Pistonheads until next weekend.  Feel free to PM me with any questions.[/color][/font]

Anthracite and yellow, nice colour combination. How is the heater on this car?

The heater works but not great to be honest. Its not nearly powerful for an open top car. The one problem I have at the moment is the direction selector knob which is very stiff. It's going in to the garage on Wednesday to be fixed hence why I hadn't mentioned it in the add.

Very tempting, but I think silver is the colour for me. Having said that I don't like TD wheels but this colour combination and ride height makes the TDs really suit the car. It's very smart.

Heater controls all fixed. Would really like this to go to someone on .org but I guess everyone's got a VX.

I'm going to drop the price to .org members to £10,750 with all upgraded parts. If it doesn't sell I'm going to keep it till spring. Just had a brand new MOT today with no advisories. Guy commented on how he could see it had all new suspension. He was wrong, it's just in great condition.
