Theres a new one on eBay at them moment, if you put a wanted add on here I'm sure someone will find some hidden away?

If I remember right Justin Shields (Jayboy) had some new old stock ones aswell.

Thanks Tim, it's about time I sorted these out as I've done the important mechanical bits, now for the cosmetics!

My Dad has confirmed he'd love to have it so I'm glad it's staying in the family for the timebeing.

A shame that your leaving BX'dom (most people do come back) but glad your Dads having her, I take it you will be keeping a watchful eye over the old girl! :wink:

Thanks Ian, always a relief to get the pass isn't it!

It'll still be my car Tim (in so much that I'll pay for the upkeep) I'm just lending it to my Dad as a favour really for all the times he's helped me out with car storage. I've already told him I'll need it for La Vie en Bleu in May at Prescott...

'had' being the operative word. Sold them to ruben, and believe they stayed with the car when he sold it so Richard has them now

I recieved a message the other week from Chris, the chap who got this car from Rob. A flurry of PM's over on Autoshite later, I was sat on a train to meet him. About 11pm last night I pulled up back home in Ludlow with this rather nice car :D

As I said on AS, nice one! Rob told me the clutch was quite heavy in this one, though my Mk2 has been like that for about 40,000 miles (it isn't biting very strongly now though, so replacement is on the cards).

The clutch is a bit heavy but nothing like as bad as the white one was. Annoyingly I spent £40 inc postage buying a clutch on ebay a few weeks back then returned it (loosing £15 on postage) the day before I got a message about this one. Oh well
