Hi Kev,

I'm going to be selling my vx220 turbo. Its moonstone grey and its a 06 55 plate (still has 15 months warranty). Its done 13,500 miles and its in excellent condition. I'm having to sell as have a new job and get a company car as I'm driving quite a lot of miles (not ideal in the VX). I want to sell asap as will have two cars at the same time and don't want the cost of insurance etc. I've not taken any picture yets but plan to in the week so am happy to send. I'm not sure exactly how much its worth as the prices seem to vary on every site I look at so would be willing to hear offers. I appreciate its difficult for you to make any decisions whilst away so may end up having to sell it before hand but as it seems to meet your spec, I thought I'd just drop you a note.

Let me know what you think

Cheers

Chris

Kev, I am planning to sell mine now i have a second car so that i can buy a Caterham. It is silver, 56 plate, 6000 miles, FVSH, turbo engine with no mods. I have changed the sterio so that it is fitted for IPOD but it can be changed back. I also have fitted a momo race air gearknob, but again have the origninal. The car also has an OEM hard top in silver that was from my previous NA. Let me know if you are interested. chinky chinky Jim

Hi Kev, Welcome back to the UK in Jan... I bought a blue VXR this summer. Engine has been worked on by a comapny called V-Max in Germany producing amazing performance...almost too much with 0-100km in 3.5 secs. The car was owned firstly by the owner of V-Max (they have a website) who had just about everything done to the car...lowered, racing clutch, hand made exhaust, ventilated disc brakes, lovely alloys, digital turbo controller etc etc...with a whopping €20k spent (I have the receipts). The Second owner was the Gold Medalist Speedskater Gerard Van Velde. He has several cars in his collection and needed space for the new Corvette. The car is an absolute dream, hence my purchase, and I always wanted to own such a car. But I have 2 kids and I 'got the t-shirt' now so to speak. The car deserves an owner who can appreciate it and I have 3 cars myself (including the VXR) and my partner is not convinced that the additional cost is justified either. So, you have the story. It's a left hand drive and I have the car at home in The Hague so that might put you off completely. Import costs I am not sure of but if you have the money this is definitely THE VX to own. It's a 2004 and I paid €29k (about GBP20,000) with 39,000km on the clock. 45,000km on the clock now and second hanbd prices are holding well in Holland but I will consider a bit less but not much or I would rather wait out another buyer...(not yet advertised for Sale). Ball is in your court... Black and white pic attached. Regards, David
