    well here she is folks! Must say i'm pleasantly suprised with her condition. Off the top of my head its good points are:

    Only 135k
    plenty of service history
    nice colour
    drives like its brand new!
    has original tool kit and first aid box
    no rust whatsoever!
    spare set of alloys!!!

    Bad points:

    few stone chips
    lacquer peel on rear arch (que my bodyshop man)
    not leather as i was told (probably a good point actually as the interior is mint)

    Only thing not original is the head unit, and probably good enough to show with only a few improvements. So far so good, love the way it drives although the steering and pedals are quite stiff, not sure if its normal or not.










    I shall start a project thread as i start work on her. Not got any mods planned as yet, toying with keeping her OEM but the Mrs thinks the wheels are too small so shall see.

    Any comments and crit welcome!
