New here - going to view a car tomorrow

I'm going to see an R171 55 tomorrow that I've had my eye on.
It was for sale privately, but as usual I prevaricated and a dealer snapped it up ! It's now on for 3 grand more...

It has a few changes from standard (carbon fibre interior bits) and carbon diffuser. I was wondering, who do you use in terms of insurance for modified cars ?

I hope the car lives up to the excitement in my mind..I've printed off the buying guide to take with me so at least I'm not going in blind !

If I buy the car I'll definitely be posting more in here going forward.

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.

Welcome from North Hampshire


Depends what country You reside in?
But just a case of shopping around the various Insurance company's....
Here in the UK I was using Adrian Flux for My old R171, which where happy to insure modified cars, but they where very expensive for nearly new cars, so now with Aviva...

Talking JustinC71

Well - no doubt like everyone else, soon as I heard the engine all pretense of not wanting the car went out of the window !

I got a deal I was very happy with. I printed off the guide from here and went through all the points, the car passed with flying colours.
No damp or leaks, brand new disks and pads on the front along with 2 x new front tyres. It's only ever been serviced at the Main Dealer. It's low mileage as it has lived in London all it's life. With the new ULEZ coming in I guess the decided the car had to go !

Here's some poor pictures of it, I'm waiting on new ones to come through from the dealer.
I'm picking it up on June 1 which happens to coincide with my Birthday - very happy birthday to me !!

I like to think so...

I have to say I'm ridiculously excited !

I've got better pictures now - hope these come out ? I'm going to have to get rid of the Black Series badge, don't like mis-badged cars

https://boards.wetransfer.com/board/...68926dFYyC2uDI

Am I right in thinking it's due a transmission flush around 40K miles ?

Plans are to fix the upper LCD (it's got the pink shrimp syndrome)
and fit a Dynavin N7.

(Maybe an X-Pipe)
