Hahaha I know that car very well. Belongs to an old neighbor of mine in Ladbroke grove. I've tried on many occasions to buy it but unfortunately he's always said no. Said he knows what it is but to him its just a car lol. I think. He's had it from new or close to new. It's been in the neighborhood since at least 2007/8 I think

There is something that just makes me happy about the owner of this, not because it’s not being looked after but because it’s being driven like it should - I would buy them a beer :beer:

If you can afford to do it- do it

To some people it’s an investment
To others it’s just a car

That’s not “used as intended” it’s just neglected.. sad sight really but as others have said it’s down to them how they look after it - might be there ****ter they use to keep the miles off the Ferrari :muttley:

You see a lot of cool cars around there, tidier ones tend to be around Holland Park (2 mins up the road), St John’s Wood and South Ken however.

Grove is a bit of a quirky area...

M3 CP and S600 V12 Twin Turbo
I've posted a thread about this car some time ago. I see it all the time. It's actually in worse condition than it looks in the pic's, you can't see some of the damage in the pic's.

I left a note a few times as i wanted to buy it and once he replied to me saying he knows what it is and he wouldn't let it go for less than £45k in the state that it's in.

The front bumper is not repairable
Bonnet is bent/damaged
Both front wings damaged
It's had paint job in the past and not been done properly
Parking dents on most panels and scratches
Carbon fiber roof is damaged and looks like it's coming off in one corner
All 4 wheels scratched
Interior not in good condition at all

It's a shame it's in that state as it only has 56k on the clock

I like when i see people use their cars and not park them up. I don't use some of my cars as often as i would like to and i hate it sometimes but it's the way i am. This guy though is not just using it, he's abusing it. Looking at the mot history, he does between 1k to 3k a year so i dont think he's using it ''properly'', it's a very neglected car and yes people can do what they want with their cars but imo it's a shame to let such a rare car get to that state that's in. We all have cars that we drive every day but i don't think we let our daily cars get to that state. If anyone sees that car, you'd never think it's done 50k+. To get this CSL to look fresh again you'll have to spend £10k on it minimum, probably more as i'm not up to date with genuine csl parts like roof, bumper.

The car used to belong to a member from here before the current owner and when the previous owner had it the, the car was immaculate

Wings £600
Roof (you can’t get anymore anyway) £1500-2000
Bumper £3000
Full repaint £4-5000
Sort interior (if it can be?) £1000-2000+
Sort rest of carbon £2k+

So above is on cosmetics plus if any work needs doing on brakes,suspension,Vanos etc etc - easy £20k+ needs spending

I’d say in the condition it’s in it’s a £25k car max

No sure if the owner will be delighted to know his address has been branded about on an open forum :eek:

Doubt he would give two ****s.

Would probably get more money from insurance it if it was stolen than if he tried to sell it himself.

Unfortunately you can’t quantify that comment so morally it’s wrong to put someone’s address up without their approval.

1. Who said that’s the owners address? (Eg could be their place of work.)

2. Tell that to Jordan Katsianis of Evo Mag.

3. The car is parked on a public road and is on Google maps for everyone to see.

4. Go take a class on ethics and morality before you chat rubbish.

Edited my earlier post - one day that car will get sold, bought and restored to former glory. I’m happier seeing cars like this on the road than all those bought and stuck in storage, never driven and never enjoyed. Everyone will have their views about these cars - do what makes you happy as “we’re here for a good time not a long time!”’
