With a heavy heart I am selling my mk2. My wife has severe Rheumatoid Arthritis and needs to give up work, the only way to do this is by selling our Audi Q3 so we aren't paying £400 a month in finance and selling my Firevan so we can buy a family car/van outright.

Words fail me. Sport Van FFS! The Mk2 too big? What kind of Sport Van are you wanting? One of those little ones I take it. Good luck with the sale, I hope the Mk2 will go to somebody wants a Mk2, not a new owner who sees it as a wheeled investment, then gets bored....

Wont you become eligible for a vehicle on the'motability scheme' to replace the Q3?,could save buying something that's gonna loose you more in the long run than just having cash in the bank(or under the mattress)from the sale of the mk2?
We've looked at that but for us it's freeing up that monthly amount.
Plus I don't know why but I've sort of set my heart on a Sport Van now. I love the mk2 but for my life at the moment it just doesn't fit. Apart from MOT'ing it and driving it to/from storage a few times I've not used it tjis year and much the same last year.
It needs to go to someone who will use and enjoy whilst looking after it.
