I have tried to increase my usage of this glorious car, but find I am paying out for two lots of tax, MOTs and insurance, whilst generally driving around in a Eurobox Picasso.

Whilst the Picasso has served me faultlessly for 6 years now (many thanks Luffield Motors), the time has come to consider something a little more 'executive' that can deliver some of the poise and power of the SV, but with the fuel efficiency nearer the 50mpg mark and a more subtle, less ostentatious appearance, whilst remaining British.

In making this change, I fear the SV will end up losing it's appeal and I don't want it left in the garage for even more of it's life.

I'm not unrealistic in knowing that the values have not recovered, but will not drop to the prices being touted by webuyanycar, or similar.

#120 has now down 25,900 miles and apart from the usual stone chips to the clam, a rubbing pulley wheel (when cold) and the need for a service, is in very good condition.

I'm not in an immediate rush to sell and may well get it up to David for a service in the not too distant future (curing the pulley wheel fault at the same time).

If you know someone who may be interested, get them to call or drop me a line.

That must be a difficult decision to make Adrian as you have always been a superb ambassador for this unique car.

Good luck in these difficult times.

: We have an official MG dealer, Carrus, in Guernsey and the island is a motor fans dream - we have everything here as a lot of retired, wealthy folk - several Mk 2 Ford RS2000's, original Mini Coopers, Capris, many Focus Cosworths, the new Pro Drive spec Subaru Imprezza saloon, Ferraris and Aston Martins by the bag full. We have this as well which is rare - Tony Pond's works MGF - only 2 made.....



If you would like me to take anything into the dealer, Mike, he may circulate the car for you here...... it is exactly the kind of vehicle the collectors here would look at.

Carrus, Guernsey have a mint ZT 260 4.6 full spec 2004 Mk1 with flip paint at the moment - very low mileage one owner, and looks absolutely mint. Going for a test drive this week :)

PM me if you would like to keep things private - I will put you in touch with him directly if he is interested and then step out.

Best


Paul

Hi Adrian

Trying to PM you but getting a fault error on the board for private messages - normal posts OK, nothing confidential as such - can I post here. I will wait until you reply
