Does that red Compact live in Sussex by any chance?

If by Sussex you mean East Sussex, then Aye

Indeed. I used to see it around the doors a lot when I had my first E36 compact some years ago, and when I went to view my current one I spied it again in Bexhill looking very well. Small world.

I've never spotted it I've got to keep a look out for it... There's an old early pog weasel red compact that an elderly gentleman drives that is parked up in Bexhill the driver always gives me a wave when I drive past in mine.

Also there was a tidy looking silver one along the Bexhill road which seemed to be abandoned in a garden for a couple of years but it's now gone, hopefully to a new owner to put back on the road but it's most probably ended up on the bridge.

And thinking about it Dougie I remember seeing your car parked up around Bexhill a few years back (normally just off Devonshire road) as I had a look at it mainly because the colour as I think it's the best colour you can get on a compact and back then the paint was badly faded but you could tell it was a very straight rot free example (it was always covered in bird shite back then)

I really wanted it because of the colour but had to settle for a hellrot example in the end as I never saw another in that colour.

It doesn't reside there, but I think my mates have friends/family they visit in the area:) will tell them it has been admired

In other news, this coupe has now passed 4000miles. I may spend some time at the weekend checking the thing over-the-counter what it needs doing if anything

As this continues not to sell, I set about acquiring a new set of 16" wheels with good tyres for it. All 4 tyres are 2015 stamped, so pretty damn new.

Here we see the Clio becoming a van to assist. As usual, 1 needs a tyre swapping on, and 1 needs a puncture repair.
