Thanks guys, I've had the usual phone calls, a few quick lowball offers but I am sticking to my guns on this one, I've spent too much time and money on getting her perfect and I look at the pictures and wonder if I am doing the right thing, but I believe I am.

I hope someone from the forum gets her and I can continue to watch from afar. I have 2 people coming up on Sunday and potentially someone else on Saturday, but we shall see. It'll be a sad day when she goes, just like it was when my 80 Cabriolet left on a trailer for Edinburgh 2 years ago

NO, you not !!!

I bloody hope you will keep it, good things do happen to good people so I'll keep my fingers crossed

If anyone kick a tyre you kick them back.
If they slam the door, you slap them back.
You get the idea

SOLD! brought a tear to my eye seeing her drive off.

Really, really nice guy bought her - he was the first to actually not waste my time and turned up. He's a current D2 owner of a Silver S8 Final Edition with a purple interior.

He lurks on the site sometimes, I hope he will introduce himself as the new owner at some point so I can continue to view from afar

Not the same person - there is another member with an extremely low mileage FE with purple leather in the Midlands, but in need of recommissioning IIRC.

Hopefully they'll make themselves known

The best S8 that was for sale in recent times, wasn't going to hang around for long.

I was not financially in a position to offer a fair price otherwise it would have been mine!

Good luck to the new owner, I hope he posts on here, might buy it next time around lol
