I thought I'd just advertise her here in case anyone was interested and, I would like her to be looked after and it would be nice to see further updates in the future.

I'll get some pictures of her attached over the weekend but, she's relatively well know here.

Good points;

MOT'd last month.

Relatively tidy inside - needs a few further little jobs but, nothing too major.

New rear shocks, refurbished rear calipers, front suspension overhauled.

I somehow have managed to accumulate almost 3k in bills on her since I bought her!

Bad points;

Not surprisingly, she's Scruffy and will obviously need the bodywork addressing. Definitely not one for those who love polishing their car on a Sunday morning!

Difficult to price as although she looks a nail, there's a decent car hidden away under there!

GBP 2250?


A little bit of her time with me....

Any thoughts? Am I after too much or, is it just a bad time at the moment?
I’m going to try and take some pictures over the next couple of days and list it on eBay at the weekend.
Probably going to look at an auction so was considering starting it at a ‘sensible’ price and seeing what happened?
Just trying to work out what ‘sensible’ is?!

I think your price is spot on, its the wrong time of year to sell.

Cheers for your thoughts. I’m going to give eBay a go over this next coming week and see if I generate any interest?
I have a love/hate relationship with eBay - it reaches a hug audience but, it appears a large proportion of them are idiots!

As a bit of an option, I’d swap/px for a nice watch or 928 parts - if it makes it more interesting to anyone?

Not a sniff on eBay apart from the normal idiots who want to know if I want to swap for a ‘slammed BMW 330d’.
It does seem very quiet out there, not a traditionally good time of year to sell but, it seems worse than normal?
It may be auction time soon - space is needed!!

Generally, I'd love to get back into 924 ownership, and this is a car I've been looking at - however, having 2 cars now - BMW and Boxster, I cant justify another, and - don't really want to spend much time under it.

Good luck with the sale, it is a car that is honest and one with a long history in the club.

Make me an offer - I’ll fill it with spares as well.
Not because I’m a nice guy, it just means I can clear out some more space :lol:

Hi Mike

Do you have any further pics of the exterior? (not currently a member here so cannot read your postings on it.)

Doubtful i could take it before Christmas though

I’ll get her back out of the unit over the next few days and get some ‘as is’ pictures and put them up here.

If it does go to a member, I’ll fill her with spares and I’ve probably got a good drivers wing somewhere or if not, I know I’ve a good passenger wing which I’d throw in for the new owner to swap/sell to get hold of a good drivers one.
