Hi all,

I put a deposit down on this today and collect it next Saturday. It seems good but as with all used cars, time will tell!

79000 miles, FSH, generally seems OK.

They are putting better tyres on the front, fixing the exhaust flexi and giving it a valet inside and out. One door seems a different shade in the photo, it was not in real life. Odd!

I will be adding the bigger brakes from my current Aero and other bits and bobs, like number plate frames with metal plates. I will also check the heated seats properly as I couldn't really tell today with a coat on etc in the cold. I have one pad that I can use from my current car and they aren't too much or too difficult to do so I'm not too concerned if they aren't working.

Just one question really at this stage, is a bumper cut out easy to do for the Jetex from my old Aero? I assume a coping saw, some masking tape and some careful cutting should do the job? I really want part no: 32025847 but it is NLA (insert with single tailpipe cut out 2008>).

I will update this thread with progress over time.

Cheers!

Rob

Collected it today. However, nothing else happened as there was a huge delay waiting for the car to be brought around from the valet place (around an hour) and then I took my wife out for lunch to apologise for the long wait to follow me home.
