      For some reason the Facebook ad has disappeared already! I did send the guy a message while the ad was active but no reply. Suspect he's changed his mind...

      PS - just heard from the owner - yes he has changed his mind and it's no longer for sale.

        That is quite a machine. Unfortunately, probably too heavy for what I have in mind.... Plus if the wife saw that she would never consider going in a Roadster again lol.

          It was offered for sale on FB in July 2021 at £4,200 and, since DVLA have the last V5 change in 2014, by the same owner.

            Hmm strange. I am not suprised it didn't sell at £4200 as it is only a 1.3 Ital based car. And we all know how undervalued the Roadster is ;-)
            This time it was (briefly) £3200 - a bit more realistic.

                We're probably all guilty of deliberating too long over certain issues, items on e bay spring to mind. Who was it that coined the phrase 'seize the day'
