Thanks to everyone on this forum . Your help and advice has invaluable and interesting.
I had my 2002 twinnie for 5 years and did 85 thousand miles . Only parts i bought (not counting consumables) was a rear wheel bearing and the mid section of the exhaust.
I was so sad to know i would not see her again i could not get excited about my new car.
There are vety few cars that look as good as the GTV ! My new car out performs and is much more practicle but no one looks at it and i now blend into the crowd (mazda 3 MPS) and it has got no soul .
I have a spacesaver wheel (unused) and jack if anybody wants it £20 buyer collects .
thanks again every one and a little bit of me will always belong to AR.
