Well i found it on autotrader locally so searched the net and couldnt really find any info to fault it, unlike several other cars i was interested in. Yeah tax will be a bit steep at the beginning of next month; £290 for the year i think. It does drive really smooth and has a little bit of oomph from its 3L straight 6. Its even more comfortable in the back, might have to hire a chaffeur Razz

Cheers Johnny.

Got today off so gonna go and get some prices for a few bits from my local motor factors. Got to have a look at the o2 sensor as well as it brings up the engine management light, which i knew about when i bought it. The dealer reckons it justs needs cleaning as the car has sat for a while but a replacement one isnt silly money. Also got to get 4 new tyres as they are all starting to crack but again not a problem as i knocked him for them and get good deals on tyres at work.

These are lovely cars, quite a nice catch that Pete Smile I don't miss having a six cylinder engine, my GTO drank far too much was a pretty cool car though

Well i reckon this will be about the same as or maybe slightly better than the pulsar. The R was only averaging around 24mpg but im not worried about economy as i dont do that many miles. I was considering a 4L jeep and they only mange around 16mpg.

I was actually looking for the 200 model but found this locally and thought bigger engine has got to be a winner

Im not gonna mess with it except maybe a k+n panel filter. Ive had several people wanting to buy my alloys as they are quite rare apparently. This is a result as i want 17's so i can i run a higher sidewall to try and save the alloys from potholes.
