Hi there, thanks for admittance. I‘m going to pick up my SE5a end of this week in England and carry it to it‘s new home in Germany. It‘s my first British classic car. It will cut a fine figure next to my Datsuns. The Reliant’s GT Estate design is unique and fascinating. Happy about the chance to get one. Merry Christmas to everyone.

Where in Germany do you live - its a big place. I'm sure you will like the GTE - at least you can repair it yourself, no computer needed to find out what is wrong with it and most if not all of he problems that can occur people on this site have already had.

Thanks so much. I‘m from Rastatt, very close to beautiful Baden-Baden. I‘m grateful for every advice of sophisticated owners right here in this forum. Thanks!

Welcome to the loony home Thorz

Scimitar owners in the UK are renown for being Mad and brainless :shock: :wink:
BUT :!: Most of the time we do know what we are talking about.

Nice looking SE5a :D

Welcome Thorz, that's a very good looking car.
There are quite few German cars on the Scimitar France site :?

There is also a German Scimitar Friends club but I can't find their address at the moment, my brain is on holiday.

1st job to do on a Essex engine if it has not already been done is to fit a steel or alloy timing gear - saves lot of tears in the end.
