The private plate does ring a bell as possibly having been owned by someone on here. But I have no info on it specifically, but if this thread stays at the top long enough one of the people on here who has been a memeber for years might be able to give you some history.

Speaking of history the seller makes no mention of service history. Without evidence that it has been serviced on the dot it's not worth the hassle.

Also on 42,000 miles you need to check if the cam belt service has been done. If it hasn't that is over £600 at a dealers. This service is due at 45,000 but may have been done early.

The price is on the low side for a TME though so if it's not too far away from you it's always worth a look in the flesh.

We all have different views on this - the TME owners will say it is far better, but IMO the TME isn't worth the extra over the GSR and the ride is too harsh.

Your best bet is to take them both for a drive and make your own mind up (like i did - then bought a VII which I couldn't afford to run) :crackup:

This one is quite a good price, so easier to compare, (whereas when I was looking I had to try and justify spending an extra £2k - £3k on a TME, than a GSR, and i didn't think it was worth it).
