Certainly it's green , good on oil leaks, hydraulic and engine. Doesn't use noticeable amounts of oil or water. No rusty door pillars. I'm very reluctant to sell it for such a minimal amount as its so good but I don't have room for another car .

Ian, if you want to send me your pics I will host them for you and post them here. Believe me, you've got a much better chance of selling the car with pics!

Just to get the usual disclaimer out of the way, I have never met ianselva and never even knew he existed before he posted this thread. I'm happy to post his pictures for him though!

Here's the text of the email he sent them with:
Hi Stuart thanks.
I really will be sorry to see this go as it's served me faithfully for years towing my race car all over Europe. We went to a race meeting at Misano last year via Munich and Austria , then on to the South of France near Frejus , on to the next race at Dijon and the home -3000 miles , mostly at 70-80mph and not a spot of bother.
Use any photos you think.
I've been to Frejus and Dijon in various old knackers... they're a long way away.

It looks like a pretty car. Given the usual checks, if I had 400 quid to spare I'd think hard about it.

If it was the beginning of the year I'd have had it. Always liked the Hurricanes

Is £400 realistic bearing in mind the intergalactic mileage? i would have thought nearer half that, but i stand corrected if anyone disagrees...

Mulley - does that mean you are interested but would like to negotiate the price?

Hmm I dunno, the mileage on a diesel doesnt really affect it that much, ive found to my peril with BXs if the bodys good and not rotten then the mechanicals are a easy fix.

Jeremy - already have 2 i'm afraid so cant fit anymore onto the drive. :D My tzd cost the same as the hurricane but had 100k less on it, thats the only reason for querying the mileage/price on that one???

Seems to be wide range of prices on these cars, high miles seem to go for as much as lower mileage one's, just find that a bit strange thats all.

But i guess if its a good one like Tim suggests, then mileage can be irrelevant.
