Car for sale is my daily drive so the current mileage will increase from its recorded 133,000 app.
I have covered app 17,000 miles since buying it in December 2012.
On a trip to Scotland(2013) covering nearly 2,600 miles in a week the car averaged 27 mpg.
Car is in overall good condition but is not a garage queen.
So do not expect a showroom condition car.
The hood is in good condition as is the rear window but showing signs of wear.
Interior in very good condition no rips etc.
Before I bought the car someone has knocked the bonnet slightly between the kidney grills. (see photo)

You all know I track day the car(how they should be used ;);), so not trying to hind anything from anyone.

Below are a few pictures but I can supply many more if required. Pictures below show both sets of wheels so you know what it looks like.

Also the subtle vinyl graphics can be removed without damage before new owner takes control.

Having seen the car I can certainly agree it looking in the condition Mark lists it as.

It looks like it will be back to a more track focused car and top of the list is a supercharged MK1 MX5, a lot cheaper to cheap on the track, also I can do a lot more to it.
Worst case will be it does not sell and I really go to town on it to loose a lot of weight etc.
Then my Alpina will get used a lot more instead of sitting in the garage most of the year.

I am hoping at this price someone who wants to get into M ownership will be interested.

Advert updated as I have replaced rear drop links and rear subframe vertical rubber mounts. Due to slight play.

No real surprise, well done fella! Don't forget to post up some piccies of your new ride when you get it :)
I will do Gaz and thanks for my time on a very well organised forum (lots of work by yourself)

Front runner on a replacement is looking like a supercharged or turbo'd MX5 MK1 running in excess of 220BHP in a car weighing less than 950k(as standard).

I will stay on here if that's ok and pop in on occasions to see what's going on.
