Re: Have I done the right thing?

It's all pretty moot anyway cos Lotus and TVR aren't everyday cars, so we have to own another more useable vehicle, this negates the off-the-road theory. Jumping into Mini ownership shortly with an F56 Cooper which I'm looking forward to. 1st Mini since I sold mine about 30yrs ago :damnfunny Cost of...

Re: Any recommended MOT stations near Dunfermline?

Generic chains like Kwik-fit have to be the worst place to take a specialist car like a Lotus. I'd say this applies to any car. I'm fortunate to have a guy I've been using for MOTs for around 28yrs :shock: but he's a good honest guy who just happens to be one of the most reputable Alfa Romeo specia...

Selling a Cherished Number

I have a number which is no longer needed, sitting on retention.

It's a prefix plate Y7 RMB

Any ideas as to where I can best get a valuation and/or sell it?

Thanks in advance :cheers

There's at least 6 of us up here now. Common as muck really.
Jim - a friend of a friend has a black one which is an ongoing project with silly power (talk of circa 1100bhp :shock: ) up in Peterhead.... I'm sure you'll be aware of him :thumbsup
