I'm surprised it reached that figure. Looked pretty uncared for if (no offence to prev owner!) and the respray looked more like a quick blow-by without bothering to mask off grilles, spolier uprights etc.
And the coolant level was low, probably just a leak but demonstrates a lack of care & maintenance to me. I expected it to go for £34k all in to be honest....

Maybe it demonstrates that S1 values are on the up in order to maintain a decent diff from S1 elise values?
Also, does it demonstrate that buyers are not bothered about lack of originality (when it comes to engine swaps?).

I was going to take a punt on it, but it went over my budget sadly.
