Paul - in answer to the questions - lol
a. They both seem to hold the value very well - if looked after
b. I only did 180 miles in the Lotus the year we sold her
c. In the year we sold her tax, insurance, service and MOT was over £1400 - so that was £7 per mile without fuel
Very lovely car - miss having her sat on the drive but a very expensive toy that had little use and could never involve the whole family - hence why after four years of ownership I let her go - the RIB is much more fun for everybody - much cheaper and less likely to be badly damaged due to poor driving or wet weather - Toady loved to slide around wet roundabouts - good fun but did'nt help with the grey hair issue - thankfully she never came off the road but it was huge grin inducing fun getting away at traffic lights before everybody else
I'm such a little kid - pathetic!!
