The 214 SEi returns......and joins the 618is

#1 Post by prepace » Tue Jun 09, 2020 7:55 pm

Howdy folks, it's been a while since I have posted on here, mainly because I've been without a 200 or 400. Some of you may recall that I bought a one owner SEi from here in 2016, others of you may recall then seeing it at Milton Keynes the day after I collected it from Bristol.

I then made a huge mistake in selling it to fund another R8 in February the following year, that said Scott who I sold it to promised that if he ever came to selling it I'd be the first person he spoke with! Lucky for me that's exactly what happened late last week and a deal was done. It arrived back with me on Sunday much to my delight.

It now shares a stable with my '98 618is. Both cars have covered approximately 43k miles and as you'll know share a very similar interior, which is why I always loved the later R8 SEi's and the run out 618is.

It's good to have an R8 again, I do not foresee either of these going anywhere until I'm no longer about to enjoy them.

Nice one! I will be in the market for a 618 iS later this year or next, so if there is any chance of you parting ways with it I’d be very interested!

Both lovely cars! Especially pleasing to see a well kept, low mileage 600-a rare beast now. :cool

600 the best car rover ever made in my opinion, did many company miles in one of them 2.0 diesel and never miss a beat :clapping a estate was all that was missing 🤔
