Well, the time has come to say goodbye to my 260. Bought new from SMC Uxbridge in April '04 (as I prefer the Mk1 styling) for £33,000 (!), my motoring needs have changed and although I will miss it terribly it is up for sale for £9,450 ono.

I would like to think that it must be one of the nicest & best cared for cars around, in Raven Black (solid not metallic) with full SE spec including A-pillar airbags, HK sound system, TV etc and the "Gunsmoke" leather/alcantara interior plus high rear spoiler. It currently has Fox R6 alloys fitted & the correct Conti M3 tyres, although you could have the original wheels instead if you wanted. It also has Xpower exhausts (I do have the standard ones too), the heater hose & fuel clip mods done and a mildly gas-flowed intake from the USA.

It has only done 22,000 miles, all in my hands and has never been damaged. I have had it serviced properly (by MGRover until their demise) and have ALL the paperwork with it from new, which is quite a folder full. It has no faults, a recent MOT and nearly a full years road tax too.

I am located in Amersham, Bucks and you are very welcome to call me on 07932 678546 (although sometimes reception is poor, so please leave a message) or PM me. I can also send photo's if you give me an email address and I may get round to listing it on Pistonheads with some photo's soon.

Pity Martin buyers market at the moment. :( If you e-mail me some photo's I'll put them on here for you.

18" x 8" Fox R6 guys.

They take the standard fitment tyre (the rim is just 1/2" wider) although of course you could go wider and just fill out the stance nicely for a bit more attitude.

I waited for ages for the right wheels to come out. Glad you like them. Shame I need to sell (although I reserve the right to change my mind!).

I'm now asking £8,950 ono.

By the way, my post above doesn't read very well. I meant that the Fox wheels DO fill the arches better & improve the look of the car being 1/2" wider....

Just wondering Martin, can you remember the offset of those new wheels
I am having conflicting reports regarding the fitting of aftermarket wheels with a 35mm ofset which most are, ours are 50mm.
A local tyre company is having one wheel sent down to try on the car before I buy which is pretty decent of them

I can't remember the offset although 35 or 38 rings a bell. I remember that it wasn't the same as standard anyway.

I bought them through one of those on-line suppliers who have a menu of vehicles that each wheel will fit. They are certainly the same as for a 190 or whatever other model of ZT.

If I find the invoice, I'll let you know.
