OK, that's all the technical, safety & comfort bit done - so..... what would you REALLY like to know?? We have effectively owned this car from new - the previous owner having only done 1,150 miles in it between Feb 2005 and when we acquired it on 31st October 2005!! We exchanged our Mazda RX8 for this BRABUS, only really because the RX8 was a fuel-guzzler (22mpg) & not convertible, whereas the BRABUS scored on both counts, doing 60mpg & being auto-convertible - even when driving along (useful if you get caught in a sudden shower, not that we get those of course in the UK....) - and its performance, as a true sports car, is fantastic. You can drive it as a full automatic - or it's actually much more fun to use the Steering-wheel mounted Paddle Shift function (right paddle to change up, left to change down) - you really can think you are Alonso! (or Hamilton if you prefer..). But stay within the speed limits, obviously. The clever electronics detect & display when you should change gear - & if you do stray too far on the revs, it will change gear for you - so you can't do any damage - magic! Tax is cheap - VED Band A (CO2 being 126g/km). Insurance is also cheap. Although the current MOT expires mid-October, we'll be happy to re-MOT it for a year for the successful bidder - it will sail through the test. Garaged from new & fully serviced on 29th June 2012. So, why do we want to sell the BRABUS? Simply because you can't fit 3 under-6 grandchildren in it (even I wouldn't make 2 of them travel in the luggage compartments - I think it's against the law??).
If you want to ask any questions about the BRABUS or about our ownership of it - or you would like more fotos, please just ask. Payment methods preferred are personal cheque or bank-to-bank transfer.
Thank you for looking.
