wow, cant imagine how you could ever want to sell such a beautiful car :P
price would depend on finding the right buyer as its such a unique car, would see it definatly fetching at least £3500-£4000 and probably more
id keep an eye on how much this car goes for, as its fairly similar

I personally don;t want to sell it but I'm using my car a lot more and don't want to ruin it after all the hard work so it seems the right option to sell it and go over to a diesel car.
Will keep a look at at that ebay link, see how much that goes for will give me a rough idea of how much to sell it for as and when

Not at all, which car show was it?Wasn't Trax down at silverstone by any chance was it?

stunning car mate what colour is that?

Thanks very much, its Ford Focus ST Electric Orange.

Nice looking car, looks tidy and well done, nice spec. I'd have advertised it at £3500 and taken about the £3.2-£3.4 mark for it.
