    Congratulations, let the fun begin :)

    I'm looking for right-rear suspension, inner and outer wing for my S. If anyone following this thread can help please let me know.

    Fingers crossed all the modules are fine. Will let you know in a few weeks.

    Classic car conversions.

    Following this thread with interest. Even if cars cannot be repaired the battery pack alone is good value.
    It would make a perfect off-grid battery, with days of capacity.

    Fairly sure you got the one I was looking at. The bids were going a little crazy on that.
    I have a feeling it's the same one here:

    Looks about right. The one I got's wearing springs not air suspension, same as this one. That's not really much of a news story is it? Just someone's video and no text or commentary whatsoever!

    There was a 2nd there for a short while. Black and a stat. Perfect for my needs. But then it mysteriously disappeared. Good luck on the silver one folks :)

    I think someone might have paid a bit much... $45000!
    I took some pictures while I was there, I'll post when I get a chance.
    The photos that pickles had up didn't show the whole story.

    Yeah its crazy $45K plus the fee from Pickles, it gets better the S model statutory write off P100D got passed in at $51K and it has got battery casing and rear gear drive damage.

    45k is a fair chunk of dough, not forgetting that an insurance company assessed (rightly or not) that it would be more costly to repair than replace/pay out.
    I'd be interested to see your pics. Did you take any of the white X by any chance!? I'll be seeing it in due time anyway...

    I was only able to spend about 5 minutes there so this is all I have. (I was supposed to be at work.)
