Edition 40
« on: January 04, 2021, 08:16:00 pm »
Hi guys..
New here..

Im interested in the Edition 40 but dont see alot of traffic here about them...

Are there many members here who are E40 keepers..?

Id be interested to speak to members that have a good idea around market pricing too if theres anyone here who would be so kind

Kind regards

Andrew

Well how sad it is that I get replies after being a bit disapointed I didnt get any...lol

Come on guys there must be more folk here who own these cars that could ...but maybe not.

Ive looked at the black one at Gazely and not quite as good as I was lead to believe...personal opinion only.

maybe it's simply that the people left on here just don't own one?

Gazley info is all over the show.

If you want driving thrills, GTI40 over R

0-100 in 6 seconds? That seems slow for an R?

That would be just some copy and paste bollocks they would do for all of them I would say.
