Nice 416GTI

Just browsing Autotrader and found this...

Flicking through the pictures and in the history file is a photo of an invoice...with my business card attached from when I was a service advisor at an ex MGR dealership! I used to try and deal with all the MGR customers for obvious reasons, so it was nice to see this!

This used to be owned by a club member. I am sure he will identify himself if he wishes to!

Nice to see that the dealer has slashed his intended profit margin: I seem to remember that he first had it on the market at over £4k!

It is certainly priced more realistically now :)

Interesting-wonder if it’s the owner I served when I was at Evans Halshaw.

Yes I was the most recent and only 2nd owner. Brought it from a woman in Luton who's husband had recently passed away. I spent a lot of time and effort getting it to look that good. Shouldn't have sold it but it was heart over head.
I guess the original owner must have used your services back in the day!

Sounds like it! The car does look great in the pictures. I’d consider buying it if I didn’t have too many cars already and not enough space.
