So I finally sold it, finance paid off so I got rid.

 

My overwhelming feeling is of disappointment, it chipped great, but too unreliable, needlessly so imo.

 Shonky engineering, poor welding etc.

Nothing against Redwood, they did their best considering they could have binned me off as I’d bought it from one of their foreign concessionaires.

 

I won’t get another one, that’s for sure.

Has it gone to dealer or private sale?

 I worry about moving our machine on in case we get pursued under 'vice cache' should the new owner suffer as I have.

Getting prices in atm. Very very expensive.

 

€45000 ex VAT for a 325 with a 45hp engine.
