Bodywork and interior were remarkable for the mileage, seller told me it was used by a french bloke for european trips and therefore mostly motorway. Engine sounded good, everything worked and looked good. Lots of paperwork from the last few years for sump drops and other jobs etc.
Horrible knock when pulling away but seller said this was to due to the subframe bushes being made of poly. I was too enamored to care, £800 and the car was mine.

The grumbling could be a nasty budget tyre on the front or uneven wear on the rear tyres caused by the rose joint bushes ..check the back tyres if there very uneven ,not round when you run your hand round the diameter at the back that's your problem

Well...the green gremlin may have been saved!

Changed the turbo core for a new cartridge, haven't seen any smoke shows since. Time will tell and I'll start tracking the oil usage. Have moved to Shell 5w-40 too, engine was noisy at the top when hot, quieter now.
