    Hi Erik, welcome along. If you return your questionnaire to Tim and get full membership then you will have access to a vast amount of information about the 260's.

    All I can find out about #147 is that it was built on 04/12/2003 at 10:37 is a 260SE in Xpower Grey with Sports Leather seats.

    Good morning, Erik, and welcome from Holland!

    If your car is #147, I have a tiny bit more information (which you probably already know anyway!).
    The car is RHD and was originally built for and registered in the UK with a number-plate NA04***, but I do not know the identity of previous owners or anything about its history, I'm afraid

    Is it by any chance the 150,000 km car sold in Norderstedt around 22 February?

    Strangely another X-Power grey 260 was sold in Weddingstedt Germany on about the same day, with about the same number of kilometres (!), but that was LHD and I have no VIN for it; the dealer would not tell me. The asking price was more than double that of the RHD car.

    Yes, Erik. Agree about the price being very good indeed. Unfortunately I have no more information than what Nich and I were able to mention above. Sorry!
    For some reason, this car appears to have "slipped under the radar". I can't see it ever being mentioned before on the forum.

    Erik, you have a PM from me.
    (Click on 'Notifications' in the menu bar, top right, and then 'Inbox', or 'Private Messages' in the longer blue menu-bar a bit lower down)

    Cheers, David

    It was first registered at Mill Garages in Sunderland following display in their showroom early 2004.

    Welcome along Erik, send me your email address and I'll forward a questionnaire if you can't locate the link when you registered.
