Re: S1 exige value

What a sorry sight - pleased you are ok. On salvage value must be worth £7k? Seats, engine,wheels got to be worth close to that on their own?

As an aside and I’m far from an auction expert but 11% buyers premium as I read the website (buyers commission) that’s a chunk of extra £’s on top of the hammer price. I guess the norm but would make me think ..
Yep and VAT is payable on the buyer commission too.

Re: Noble V S1 No Contest

Cheers chaps

Really pleased with how the new engine cover perspex fitted - although it was very fiddlely to get right.

That is no ordinary piece of wood - it is b&q finest dowel with rubbers on either end! :)

Itching to get out to put a few more miles on.
