Well, the time has come, it looks as tho' the ST is going tomorrow :-(

Its just costing me to much to run for the trips i am doing and its killing my bank account...

Really am gutted, work is buyign it back off me and i'm going to my former love of MX5s :)

Its been a brilliant car, such a grin factor, but just not meant to be...

Sorry to see your selling up mate but no point in crippling yourself financially to keep it


Good luck with the MX5

To the OP, your in a similar boat to me actually. I love my ST to bits but its coming near to the end of its lease and the company has stopped the scheme now so its going back in the next month or so.

I'm looking at a new shape MR2 as a replacement. Just missed out on two bargains as well so still on the hunt. 6ft 4 in an MX5? I'm 6ft 2 and I just fit in one, with the wheel scraping my legs!

Sorry to hear its got to go, i'm still tempted to get an older mx5 as a runabout. Plus i have a lovely pink shirt to wear while driving it.
