Looks like I've just bought this sight unseen. (other than 'Sounds'/Dan going to look for me 2 weeks ago)

Needs a spoiler.

Not a big one, but without a little lip it just looks like any other diesel.


Other than that, very nice.

It's not the NG9-5 I was looking for, but after 2 months lookingf for a car...

55,000m
Electric memory seats
Premium seats: Obsidian black semi-aniline leather sport.
Electric memory, folding, dimming, reverse dip mirrors.
Auto dim interior mirror
Comfort open/close windows
Rain-sense wipers
Park assist
Sat Nav
Bluetooth
18" option wheels
TPMS system, but no TPMS valves I think

No AFL xenons though like my old one had
No Bose Centrepoint stereo
No rear centre headrest
With a HD dashcam
Cambelt, waterpump and drop link in the boot.

So very similar to my written off one, with just 2 or 3 bits missing.

Can't be many up spec'd one like that left with lowish miles.

My old one
My wifes one (now 93,000m)
This one

Was it one per dealer for the new model?

So, I'm home.

Car works mostly as it should
A few cosmetic things to fix
a couple of gremlins to fix
a clonk (drop link) likely, there a new one with the car
Possibly a hiss on full boost
Drone when pulling away.

TPMS works.

The biggie though is a DPF delete (10,650 miles ago) which will need sorting by March '19 :-(

Hope you negotiated some money back for that if it wasnt mentioned on the advert.

About £1500 would cover it i think?
