    Someone will make a mint breaking that car for spares due to the lack of Cadillac panels and bits available. The stereo must be worth a fair bit. Perhaps we should buy the next one. Would be interesting to know how much the breaker paid for S70RMP's

    Without meaning to sound disrespectful and I appreciate what you've been told, but I had a very interesting chat with the guy who fixed the front faring on my own BLS the first week into this new year and you definitely don't want to believe everything that an insurance company tells you about repair costs. I find it hard to believe, even taking into account parts supply issues, that your old BLS would have cost that much to repair. My old MX5 unfortunately had two bangs both fixed under insurance and the quotes that came in were unbelievable, even for a car where parts are more than readily available. In the end, the accident repair place that fixed my BLS did the repair to the MX5 at several hundred pounds cheaper than the insurers 'approved' repair specialist and he did an amazing job. This is one of the many reasons why consumers insurance premiums are so unbelievably expensive. My neighbour very recently hit a BMW at very very slow speed in a supermarket car park, putting a very minor dent in one of the doors. It could have been repaired very easily by one of those visit at home dent repair guys, but the owner came back to my neighbour with a repair quote from his garage for just under a thousand pounds because they wanted to do a whole door respray and all of the other stuff that goes with it. If repair jobs aren't being undertaken at proper cost prices, even allowing for the repairers profit margin, then you can expect the sort of pie in the sky repair quotes you were given. I just think it's shameful really, your old BLS could probably have been repaired for a fraction of the cost. Let's face it, they could even have just let you buy a second hand one for half the price you were quoted on repairs and settled it that way! Oh well, never mind, it's gone now, though I would have liked to have had the wheels off it for a set of winter rubber!

    Mmmm, looks like someone might have the opportunity of doing just that anyway. It's back on Ebay again!

    Re: Unusual BLS TTid sale on Ebay

    How bizarre that this vehicle keeps popping up on ebay?

    It's a lovely looking motor, what I don't understand is why, if there is a problem with the autobox, that someone just doesn't pop a reconditioned Saab unit in. Surely the gearbox must be the same?

    I just don't understand the point of buying a car with a problem and then just keep shifting it on. There must be loads of people now who have seen this car advertised several times?

    Weird!!!

    The present owner would probably make far more money breaking the car. I for one would love a few items as 'spares' - bonnet (hood to our American cousins), grille, headlights, front faring and possibly, front doors. Certainly if I already owned an estate BLS with the same engine, I'd be bidding on it myself.

    Gosh, I still haven't done 20,000 miles in mine yet and it's almost 4 years old! (May 2nd 2008 build date). Still got the original tyres on! Glad it's not an auto!

    £262 for two Pirelli's? Mmm, I've decided to fit Cooper Tyres ZEON CS6 in the same size presently fitted (235/45/17 94w). There come in at just under £100 each fitted and the tread pattern is very similar.

    Sorry, that went off topic and to stray further, just in the process of trying to buy a new set of front coil springs as 'spares'. Don't want to be caught out waiting for weeks if one snaps! Dealer is currently doing the running around on my behalf and just waiting for news.

    Re: Unusual BLS TTid sale on Ebay

    Mmmm, what happened to all of the bidders I wonder?

    It is all very odd!

    Another thing I've noticed, why is this vehicle only offered with one key? I've read on a few of the threads whereby owners appear only to have had one key and I'm struggling to hazard a guess as to why?

    My BLS came with two brand new working fobs (before anyone asks, no disrespect but I ain't selling one!), so why hasn't this car got two fobs?

    Oh well, I somehow suspect we'll see this car on the auction site again in the future!!
