New rear brakes last year, just replaced front brakes and a new caliper - all OEM. Also just had thrust arm bushings done.
Fitted Goodyear Eagle Assymetric 2 tyres this year so these have only done around 2000 miles.
The bodywork is in very good condition.
The bad: The front end is stone chipped and the wheels have a few marks. I removed the rear tints last year as they were starting to peel.
MOT'd on 2/10/13 so you have 12 months. Taxed until February 2014.
No tyre kickers or time wasters please. This is a fantastic car which I think will appreciate significantly in value from where it is now if it continues to be looked after.
