    SEight 5.1 V8 - SALE agreed

    Price is £14,500 - based very much on what other V8s have sold for in the last year and aligned to the massive spec of mine
  2. SALE NOW AGREED After much deliberation I have decided its time to move on to something else, only real reason for sale is that my wife and I have recently got back together and as we have an 11 year old son I want a second car that we can all enjoy at the same time. I bought the car in Feb 2017 and have since lavished huge amounts of time, effort and not a little money taking a really nice car and making it even better (I hope) The car attracts a huge amount of attention and has never ceased to put a smile on my face, it has been virtually faultless, a bad indicator earth and a failed clutch slave cylinder being the only issues I have encountered. Will come with a massive folder full of invoices dating back to its original build up to date and is a car that really needs to be seen to be appreciated. Car is based in Telford, has MOT until end of Feb 19 - last one passed with zero advisories. I would welcome any inspection / viewing and believe the first person to express serious interest will buy it - its a very special car but my family is more special to me. Spec is below: Registered – 2004 Current mileage – 13,000 Over 130 invoices totalling in excess of £30k build costs (excluding consumables) General / Bodywork Westfield widebody with FW (Featherweight) panels Weight – approx. 670kg Carbon fibre dash, boot panel and rear arch protectors Carbon NV aeroscreen and front wings Westermann Motorsport carbon fibre half doors Rose jointed RAC roll bar Interior Intatrim Stoneleigh GT seats with 2 stage heating Scroth FIA approved harnesses Carbon Mick carbonfibre chassis rail protectors Instrumentation Stack ST8130 Digidash Plus with full parameter recording and lap timing Engine 5.1 V8 built by V8 Developments 330bhp @ 5300rpm 380 lb ft torque from 2200-4500rpm Redlined at 6300 rpm Lightened flywheel Fully balanced Vernier timing chain set Big valve heads and race cams Solid lifters Jenvey throttle bodies with ITG filters 3 stage John Eales dry sump Run on Millers CF 10w60 NT+ oil Aeroquip fittings throughout Bespoke long-range foam filled fuel tank DTA 8 PRO programmable ECU with Launch and Traction control Bespoke high flow radiator by Brise Fabrications Electric pull fans controlled by ECU Samco silicone hoses Bespoke stainless steel exhaust and manifolds designed to meet strictest track sound test limits Oil temp never usually goes above 100 degrees Water temp never above 90 degrees Has used no oil or water in my ownership Transmission R380 gearbox Ford Sierra 7” diff with ZF plated LSD 3.62 ratio Steering / Suspension Specifications for suspension and set-up development by head of Audi Chassis Dynamics (UK) Nitron dampers, dyno’d and matched to springs Image 3 piece billet 15x7” / Nankang NS-2R 205/50/15 fitted at 12,500 miles BG quick release hub Quick rack (2.1 turns lock to lock) with stops Brakes Hi Spec Ultralight 4 pot front calipers with drilled / vented discs Sierra rear calipers with drilled / vented discs If you type in "Westfield SEight 5.1" in to YouTube there are a number of videos where you can see and hear this wonderful car

    Should I sell my Seight

    We have had some great times in it and he has said that he needs me to keep it until he is able to drive it - I jokingly told him ages ago that he could have it when he was 18 - seems like he took me seriously

    Should I sell my Seight

    If anything the V8 is the reason I still have it - its such a hooligan car if you want it to be but also a really relaxed tourer. Having a petrolhead wife and son means its becoming increasingly difficult to keep them both happy - they both want to be the passenger. Perhaps the fact my son is getting a little older (11) suggests I should keep hold of it as he will soon not want to be doing stuff with "dad" to the same extent that he has done up to now

    Should I sell my Seight

    Just wondering if its end of Summer blues Had my Seight for 18 months, its an awesome car that attracts lots of attention, does not need anything doing to it and has seen me take a great base car and sort out the little things that I felt needed doing to it to make it "mine" Perhaps that's the problem - I feel like its job done and all that's left is to drive it and enjoy it Tend to get itchy feet at about 2 years into ownership and always vowed I would not be the same with this but here I am pondering on whether to sell it or not Its been used regularly this year and never fails to put a smile on my face and have no idea what (if anything) would replace it - just feel like I need another project rather than a completed project

    Car cover. recommend?

    And another for a Hamilton cover - mines been fitted about 18 months, just had to reseal it with Scotchgard but that was probably my fault as I took the cover off and gave it a deep clean, removing most of the water repellant coating - good as new again now though and still keeps the car completely watertight
  9. That looks seriously good value for an SEight that has been through Toyboxs hands - someone is going to grab a bargain

    MickMade Carbon Items

    Must admit I am desperate to get hold of a carbon nose cone, my car was fitted with one when new but was damaged shortly after being put on the road - would love to return it to as it was when built and it would also fit in with the general them of the car
  11. andy665

    Sold Mickmade Carbon nosecone and Splitter.

    If for some reason the sale to betarev3 does not go through I will take these

    Westfield in Stafford

    If you fancy a run out this evening the monthly Pistonheads meet is on between 6.30 and late just outside Market Drayton - should be 200-300 cars tonight, kits, classics, modern and American Its one of the best meets in the area and run properly - driving stupidly gets you an immediate ban - I will be there tonight and I know a few other non Westfield kit owners will be there too Wharf TavernGoldstoneMarket DraytonShropshireTF9 2LP
