Yes, it went quick. And it is painful, given the blood sweat and tears I've put into over the years. I bought the car in 2005 and the first forum I joined was s2forum.com...It took a couple more years to stop lurking here and actually join this forum.
I'm glad that I could finally update the threads with the transaction finalized today, as my phone and email has been like another part time job for the past week and a half. I had a deposit on a fair offer within two days, with more than 5 offers lined up behind it waiting for it to fall through. Two of which were above the list price. I also could of had my pick of a variety of colors of Stg3 B5 S4's. :roll:
I tried to price it fair to move it in a reasonable time frame. No sense pricing it too high, only to eventually bring it down to market value. IMO, it is a paint job away from being an $18K car. And right now, it looks pretty darn good from a few feet away. Has anyone seen what decent LHD S2's go for these days? We're not talking about beat, rusty, RHD cars from the flooded UK market here. Granted it's not a real S2, but you also don't have to import it either. The primary value was in being an LHD S2 replica, not a 20VT conversion, with basically 3K miles on all mechanicals. There just aren't many of these around to choose from. 20VT urq's are more plentiful.
And I just don't want to hang onto something for the sake of hanging onto it. If I'm not driving it, what is a car good for? A business tool? Maybe, but I've already got two others that will pick that piece up where this one left off. Knowledge gained...check.
I hope the new owner enjoys it, drives it, and takes care of it. I don't know the plans, but I'm sure we'll hear something about it in the future...
Delivery date is Friday, unfortunately I will not be there to see it or drive it
Glad you and my brother got everything squared away. I "think" the plans for the immediate future include: splitting DD-time with a B5S4 while the S4 gets its go fast goodies. Then....then...the e-S2 will get some new go fast goodies.
