I'm based south london, there doesn't seem to be many owners around here, although I saw one Red TME parked on the road next door. It would be hugely beneficial if anyone around here is reading this!

This is what I'm leaning towards. There's a modded one at SVA imports in Dover at the moment, so as soon as I can get my mechanic to come look at it and check for rust, I'll be taking it for a test drive.

Thanks for the good advice!
