Hello everybody.
I only popped in to my local classic car dealer on the way home from work to say hello - and that's the honest truth.
I have always had a soft spot for the Se5 and after a 10 minute look round and a drive round the car park I had to have it.
I negotiated as hard as I could and being a builder I also had to give a free week of maintenance on his premises but now I have it.
EFM269L is all mine and I love it, I absolutely love it. Possibly should of measured my garage first but hay-ho, it fits with an inch to spare.
Updates to follow.......
Regards to all.
Richard K

Thanks Jim, I will do that.

Love the car, really good colors. I made him an offer on a Coupe a while back he wouldn’t budge.
