    It's a well known trick to get people through the door.

    One Ford dealer I called about a low mileage Escort back in the day did it to me. When I got there he tried to sell me a Renault 5!!!

    Called him a joker and walked out laughing.

    Same as I found a (mixed-brand) dealership advertising a Ford Mondeo Mk3 Ghia TDCI with 6 miles
    Walked round their forecourt, found three that matched the trim level and engine, but not the mileage
    Noted the registration numbers and showed them a printed copy of the advert
    "Oh, that looks like a misprint, it should read 6000 miles"
    None of the three cars matched that either
    bye....

    I wonder if has dpf faults or the like, and they can't retail yet....?

    Give some of the motability specialists a ring, see what you can get? That's where mine came from.

    Mine came via auction in Newcastle and Washington dealer, but these boys claim they can source. Motability normally goes straight to auction where the "Motability" sales are advertised, but the odd used specalists are out there like these guys:

    http://www.brooklandcars.co.uk/about-us

    Normally there is a closed list preferential dealers can search. Manuals exist, because a mate bought a Focus 2.0 petrol manual (a Q car rocketship!) last year.
