Serious attempt to find my old car

Recommended Posts

Like anyone who's owned and driven a 205GTi and then been foolish enough to sell it, I regret my choice. I'm trying to find my old car and wondered if it was known on here.
I've also gathered the following information from the guy (Matt) I sold it to:
"Matt’s lecturer (Colin) goes to Lotus club at The Hampshire Hog on the first Monday of the month and knows Tony who Matt sold it to"
The Hampshire Hog is a pub near the A3 in Hampshire and the car was believed to have gone in the Surrey direction. As the guy I sold it to was a trusted bloke at my (then) local garage and had a thing for 205s, he used to work on and own loads of them, so can't really remember too much about it, aside from what a nice car it was and how little I sold it to him for * angry face * 
So, has anyone known "E482 RFX"?
Last MoT'ed in around 2009... 
The HPI check seems clear though... 
Worst comes to the worst I will start to hang around that Lotus meet and see if anyone can at least help me discover "Tony"'s second name and I'll carry on the search from there...

I bought this car in 2012. Can't recall where from though. Don't believe it was Surrey way. When did you sell it? 


Paid around £150 for it and unfortunately it was broken down for parts. I did pass the shell on to someone as it was a non sunroof model, so it may well have lived on in some respect. 


Appreciate that's probably not the news you wanted to hear!
