I had to do it, it had to go. Just too much trouble and expense.
Yesterday traded it in for a 56 reg, 407, 2 litre diesel, luxury, 54k miles, full service history. Got £700 trade in for sticky Vicky. That was an increase from their original offer of £200. Also got a deal on extended 6 months parts & labour warranty for only £100. (well worth it).
So I collect it Monday.
*awaits comments regarding, ohh...blown turbos....poor electrics....*
So, it's a goodbye from me. This is a great forum and most of you are really helpful.
I may be back in a couple of years when I trade in the 407 for an Insignia.
