    Default My replacement for the clocked one!

    Well,

    I sent the dealer who sold the clocked car an email to confirm I am returning the car ASAP, so I removed all of the mod's done to date
    Mudflaps
    aero wipers
    Diadems all round
    Insignia washers
    H1 night breakers
    H7 HID direct kit
    CCV mod

    Only the parking sensors have to remain plus the OEM mat's he put in the car

    The leading contender and one provisionally sold is another 57 plate but with a full S/H and a print off of the Odo and ECU mileages
    It has just over 30K is another 150 CDTi and is a doppelganger to my car as it
    too is Black Sapphire.
    It is having a new DMF, clutch and slave fitted as we speak!

    It needs a few scuffs and scratches sorting and these are all down to be done before I collect the car.

    I also took a 2yr Network Q warranty, and a 2 year servicing and MOT deal as the car was registered 3 years ago today I effectively get 3 MOT's and two services.

    The car is sold sight unseen until I have been round the car after it has had the DMF as it was up on the ramp in the dealer.

    More on the new car when I get some pic's to show you that mean something.
