S2 is up at the moment if anyone is interested. Add on SELOC, will put one on here too.

Such a difficult thing to price but agreed value for insurance is £40k, SELOC told me it was worth over £30k so It's up at £33 and inviting offers. Had 2 inquiries so far.

Sure I'll regret selling it at some point.

If I was in a position to buy i would. Unfortunately I'd need to sell mine and then find roughly another 3k 😔

 

Good luck with the sale Dr H, it truly is a stunning car.

Mentioned it on Pg 2 - I collect it tomorrow!

But it goes straight to the specialist that checked it over for me to be serviced, MOT'd and a couple of small issues sorted. Will probably bring it home after another week or so.

Collected this morning. Well I say collected. I drove over in my car, filled the back with he spare wheels, cover and battery charger. Then the current owner got in the Aston and drove it to the specialist down the road and I followed. Got there and took the owner straight back home before returning and discussing the service etc.

All I can say is that it's going to be a whole new level of spend compared to the Lotus 🙄

Mine is at a specialist for oil, filter, air filters and coolant and a new MOT. They knocked me £150 off as I'd paid them to do an inspection on the car before I bought it (£275). And I'll still be in for a £750 bill........

Just and Oil and filter change at Aston is £650 😯. That's 10 litres of synth 10/60 oil, a filter and a replacement sump pug (as it has a built in washer). I could source the parts for £150 tops and that would be better oil and OEM filter and sump plug.

Then there's 16-18mpg and £555 a year road tax and insurance.
