Hoping the cost of change over, won't be more than about £27,000 in the end, if it's the Kia :thumleft:

If the car was German, then that's more like 30k :shock:

I need Test Drives..........

Not usually a fan of automatics but for consistent launches they are hard to beat 8)

The current Mustang is a formidable performance car so the Kia has done well =D>

I got the go ahead this afternoon to find the right car to replace the GT86 and C200k :thumleft:

Lots of Test Drives coming my way :giggle:

Sort out Broker Discounts......

Once the decision is made on the right car then the following needs to be done :
  • Inform the Stockmarket Broker
  • File removal DVLA - 425 NPT (GY13 XCF)
  • File removal DVLA - A20 BKT (08)
  • Return GT86 to Stock
  • Cancel Dads Car Insurance
  • Cancel Dads Road Tax
  • Cancel Dads Service Contract
  • Cancel GT86 Service Contract
  • Sale Post for Dads Car
  • Sale Post for GT86
  • Sale Post for GT86 Parts
  • Cancel GT86 Road Tax
