New Member - Looking to buy +2

PostPost by: Jas777 » Thu Jan 11, 2018 8:04 pm


New to the forum. Just started my search for a +2. Just missed out on John's white one - thanks for the pics John, but as I was looking at the pictures your message came in that you'd sold it.

Should have got my act together quicker.

I am no mechanic, so I am looking for a sorted +2.

I will garage and use it frequently, but not in the rain!

I have seen Andy's Bahama yellow +2 advertised at the dealer, but I am in London and he is in Cheshire. Was hoping for some info if it is worth the trip as it is advertised for a lot of money.

I would like the car to be as original as possible, but I am no purist and understand that it will have a new chassis etc...

Any advice would be more than welcome, especially if someone is thinking of selling a solid +2

Thanks for reading this far.

Try this thread.


I was in more or less the same boat as you. The best advice I was given was "don't buy the first one you see". Which I duly ignored, but fortunately it came out OK considering the price I paid.

Good luck, lots of advice here.

Welcome and good luck with your search Jason. You have already done the sensible thing by getting on Elan.net.

"I will garage and use it frequently, but not in the rain!"

Thought you were UK based! :D
