    Default Sorry all, looks like im staying here :)

    Well in the end we didnt go for the bmw, it was lovely but getting old now and with 97000 on it thought it was a bit high as i read they have transmission problems between 90-120000 miles as they are not sealed for life.
    so found this little gem not too far away, has everything we need, auto for the missus, front and rear parking sensors, parrot bluetooth, factory sat nav, 1 owner 63,000 on the clock.
    will be picking it up sunday, first mod to lose the toe bar.
    heres some pics

    When you remove the tow bar (easy) remove the collars out of the bodywork or they will rattle and unplug the wiring.

    You should get £60.00 for it on e bay.

    The auto box drain the fluid every 50-60k & filter as with all auto's and it will run fine non are sealed for life not even Mercedes.

    nice motor what will happen to the bolt holes in the boot for the tow bar is their anything that it can be plugged with.
    ive been wanting to remove mine but dont want the holes so never tried mine is the swan neck one so it doesnt look like it has one when the neck is removed.
