Car Models: 9-5 aero est 2002
Sapphire Black Metallic with Tan Leather (Mk2 interim Facelift with the headlights that actually are good)

Pre-Mk3 special run-out edition including sunroof and electric everything!

Drives like a D5! Pulls strongly and gallops along the motorway giving 40mpg +

Full inspection completed July with little corrosion and no other concerns noted. Been in the Wirral most all of its 160k mile life - same dealer stamp for year after year with 1" bundle of invoices and recpeipts. Trade in to a small car dealer by previous owner as he wanted to downsize. Original plates put back on car in July 2021.

Roundtrip to Wiltshire throughout August where it didn't miss a bit.

Good Points
- great condition bodywork and alloys
- interior clean and tidy, all working
- radio replaced with OEM model and OEM amplifier (after Parrot kit removed)
- 185bhp D5 Geartronic engine (not the 2.4D lower spec 163 bhp model)
- Pirelli's all round - 4 wheel alignement done in July

Bad Points
- drivers seat stitching on outer bolster split - repaired by staples and cloth tape for now - seat itself is fine
- scratch on lower part of n/s front door repaired
- reluctor ring registering occasionally hiccups throwing up false fault - checked and reset
- front left alloy is slightly porous (loses about 1 psi/day)

Been fun to reminisce in this car over the summer but now surplus to reqts as kids moved back out after covid restrictions eased. Some are now selling for silly money. This is a sound, well cared for car and has plenty of life in it yet but need it gone now it is sorned.

Not being greedy but it is a cut above average so offers iro 2k please. Thanks.
