I have my doubts that there are two GT2's driven by people with the alias, Lonman. One with the "1 CPU" and another with "CPU 1" plate.

How did you get that information?

It was Lonmans car. I posted on Pistonheads and remember the CPU part but wasnt sure if it was 1 CPU or CPU 1. The GT2 was certainly battered and bruised which is why it only went for £45K

does anyone have a link to the auction?

also didnt we jsut clarify that the plate was '1 CPU' NOT 'CPU 1' as the pistonheads forums said it was?

also was the car in the auction right hand drive?

The RAC/AA have a site where you can get this information but it is so inaccurate. I tested it a few times with cars and reg numbers I know and 9 times out of ten it came up wrong. EG A Ferrari F40 came up as a Vauxhall Corsa etc.

Why would someone spend £0000s on CPU 1 to put on a six year old bottom of the range Polo?!?! ouich I think that is another obvious error ??????

Just to put the record straight. The GT2 was sold for £45K. The reg 1 CPU was not sold with the car but assume Lonman has it on retention. Forget about Polos etc it was Lonmans GT2 which was still£20K under going price for similar GT2s in UK due to its condition and it was RHD

Jeeeesh, how badly stuffed was the car?

What kind of 'bad condition' was it in?

I'm surprised that it went to pot so badly... :confused2

I was e-mailing with him today. I would say he is in a great mood and have some ongoing projects. As a m5board.com member you will definetly know within a few weeks what he is up to.
