Mmmm, not sure I would ever recommend a Westfield after having one, would not wish that car on anyone. Suspension arms fracturing on a two year old vehicle that had never been tracked with less than 2,500 miles on it when I sold it.

Nope without a doubt the worst car I have ever owned. If you do go for a Westfield scrutinise the suspension!

Yes I have done a little research on westfields and arrived at the conclusion it’s an enthusiasts purchase and by enthusiast I mean likes spanners, oil, and has a ramp at home.

I'm about to list the Cat N VX220 that I bought for friends and family to have a drive off and do some trackways.

Its actually pretty good standard as the boys on the MSport track night found out to their disbelief!

£6000k ono - happy to do a deal for an SE-er.

Drove Stuarts 420r at Donny and had a great laugh, but I'd only get one if you intend to trailer it to trackdays - but thats just me, and I found the factory bloody awful to deal with when I had my R400.

Sadly this project looks like it's gonna wither and die, for now. And not for the reasons you all think! Looks like I'll be moving back to a perm job in the new year for a company I couldn't say no to, I'm in the final stages of the background checks and I don't think I'm a criminal or a fraud so that should be OK. It means a bit of a gross pay cut and having to hang onto the money I have for the Cat to cover any tax bills. Still need a track whip for next year but it might just need to be an old Clio now, or maybe I'll join the MX5 dafties.

Haha No, pretty sure the project will be coming to a close soon (certainly from my perspective), plus IR35 mayhem means I don’t fancy trying to find a job in feb/mar. I’ll probably get assigned to the Bank’s account. Job is a Sr Technical Account Manager for Enterprise Support customers. Central belt geographic region.
