Unhappy My beloved old girl has to go.....sob.

I need the room in my lovely garage so the old A5 has to go. She is LHD of course so not a UK car, and she is Italian registed. The car is a 2008 coupe 3200 V6 auto and is completely standard mechanically, with just some gentle parking scars which are totally standard in Italy and above all in Rome, where she has lived for 4 years with me.

She has 178k kilometres on the clock and was not well treated by her 2 previous owners so I purchased a complete leather interior from a scrap car (honest it was NOT stolen) so she now has electrically controlled black leather seats. The service history was scarse and the tyres bald so she now wears Pirelli P Zeros on the standard refurbished 19" rotors. She has been well serviced with Castrol oils over the 4 years of my ownership, by a good indi service man.

And all this car for only 10k Euro wowowowowow. OVNO.

Form an orderly queue please and I can also give 4 spare 17" alloys for winter use if required providing the deal is right (for me).

Call or sms or whatsapp Simon on + 39 333 8153190. And at the right conditions I can also deliver her anywhere in Europe. There are several articles on here about this car and I can supply recent photos and more detail to anyone interested. She is mechanically as sound as a pound and between services consumes ZERO oil.

I wondered but was too polite to ask.
Those that have conversed with Simon for a while will remember he has a thing about women in the boot maybe he is taking it to a whole new level.

Hahahahaha thanks guys you are great I really appreciate the sweet responses!!!! I may be forced to reconsider but:

1. Here in downtown Italy the taxes on old and large engined cars are crazy. The road tax is about 1500 Euro per year and that is just the start,
2. When she was on the company I was not too concerned. Since the company and I parted er company I now pay everything myself....gulp.
3. She is not very good on fuel.
4. I do not travel every week 600km on the motorway so I dont really need a fast car, and
er..thats it.

I want the space on my garage for the motorbikes so I fear that she has to go. BUT no offers so far so we will see.

Ciao guys, Simon

Wow! 1500 Euro Road Tax each year! That's expensive! Plus you have to pay car insurance and fuel.

So, are you considering getting a small car like a Fiat 124 Spider?

Haha true Racks, my old Yamaha FJR has a 1300cc engine with about 140 horses but she is just a gentle cruiser....

And the Vito is a V6 3 litre.
