The time has come to part ways with my Eddie. It’s been a great car and will be sad to see it go, but a graduate job and mortgage payments mean I can’t keep on top of it and give it the love it needs or afford to run it daily.

MOT advisories: Noted wear to bushings caused by coilovers being installed on the vehicle when purchased. These have now been removed and standard suspension fitted. No bumps/knocks are present on the car; suspension feels perfect; no concerns from the garage in regards to this.
The not so good:
Light paint scratch to o/r bumper (see picture) happened in a car park with no cctv. Bumper is perfect apart from this and no structural damage. I haven’t got the cash to get this repaired so it is reflected in the price with everything else.
Hoping to sell to an enthusiast from the forum who will continue to look after the car. It runs and drives perfectly and will do for a long time. These cars are special as we all know. Price is listed at offers around £6,000 but happy to discuss anything. If I had the finances I would fix the small issues and list it higher but my budget is tight.
I am as honest as possible with the condition of the car, I would not want to waste someones time with the travel and expenses that come with looking for a car. Ask me any questions you've got and I will update the thread as I think of anymore information.
I am currently away from home for the next week, photos taken by a family member. Let me know if there is anything else you would like to see and I’ll try and get them taken or I will when home.
*We live on a new estate were it is impossible to keep the cars clean, haven’t moved since last washed 2 weeks ago, dirt in pictures is dust.
Thanks for looking
