    We were after a new run around (something different) for the missus and we saw this. She's p155ed off with her 1.0 12V Corsa C.

    I can feel 20" alloys (or 22" depending on cost), Leather trim etc coming on.

    We may even go off road in it. It's got fully lockable diff's etc

    Alex if you want to know how to use a Frontera for more than going to tescos, I had three before I bought my vec and used them for what they are designed to do.
    Onething don't put 20's on it unless you want to join the 'I haven't a clue how to use this 4x4' set.

    here's a few pictures of me and my frontera. Even yvonne used to use it off-road. 3rd picture down she's driving through a ford in Linconshire while I'm taking pictures -and getting wet.

    1st picture is in wales 2nd picture is near stonehendge, bottom one near Banbury

    Not every stamp in the service book is Vx, but they are bang on the mileage.

    I've not checked for ABS actually, I'll have a look.

    Yes mate, know about the removable Hard top. Should be fun at Blackpool when they switch the lights on.

    I'm not looking forward to the mpg though? Plus I want to get the timing belt/chain (whatever it is) looked at, it's me being paranoid.

    We've got a 3.2 at work. It's meant to give us an off road capability. Unfortunately they only put road tyres on it and it gets stuck in wet grass.

    Yeah but you traffic guys & gals have got heavy right feet aint yer? Off roading aint all about power, apparently. LOL

    I did an off road driving course in the RAF. Also you soon learn how to drive off road when you're placed on the Falkland Islands in a Land Rover.

    I think Cyb is our resident off road king though.
