In the November issue. Think the last time they did this was exactly 16 years ago, so probably time for another one... Apparently the going rate for a good N/A is £6k now, and "a squeak or rattle from the cabin is as rare as snow in Dubai" - well, they obviously haven't been in my one then :lol:.

It’s a surprisingly fair and accurate buyers guide, for once. Very positive about the model in all forms. It discusses the main areas to be concerned with well. It’s much more comprehensive than the last one.

I wish they had given a parts cost list for common bits. On an NA I still can’t believe how cheap most parts are, even after all the years I’ve owned mine!

Finally, there is a decent price gap between a good and a rough one. Now PC have updated their pricing, it’ll help with insurance valuations.

A924 owner in Edinburgh, I've only seen one in years, about a month ago a dark blue S and I'm a delivery driver so I'm all over the city.

Could I ask any owners of the abovementioned issue of the Practical Classics magazine for a scan of the article?
I tried to buy it, but no one stocks it in Ireland, and the website only sells digital issues as annual subscription.

My email is eryk(at)live.ie

Thanks in advance.

Greetings
Eryk

There's not many of us here, has to be said. There's one other member I know of in Edinburgh.
