Not sure whether this is misplaced optimism, a misprint or a seasonal leg-pull.
Interested to hear any thoughts!

£2800 is about right.

Not surprised Sierra Tan was a rare colour JIm - ours was ( later changed to BRG ) and I called it turd brown - that's what happens when you buy a car in the dark

I think it's quite a nice colour when it's polished

Originally mentioned on here in this thread with the same dealer in May '18 (presumably at the lower price mentioned by 1969se5 above). If the price was intended to get extra attention, it seems to have worked? :wink:

I quite like the original colour too.

Looks like the seller is going by the old adage "There is no such thing as bad publicity"

As for its value. I doubt its worth £28,000 but if it looks as nice in the flesh it will sell for more than £2800.

Either the fan is about to cut in or it's ready to overheat.

Would a drivers seat show so much wear in such a low mileage car? Failed it's MOT nine times since 2006.
