    Hi,

    Picked the old bus up yesterday, drove 5 hours home through 3 roadworks on the M6, climbed the hills on the heads of the valleys and still returned 43 mpg. I'm very pleased so far, very comfortable, goes very well and a six cylinder sound track as well!

    I'm starting a list of niggles to sort out, but, so far I can't see anything remotely major wrong with it. I'll post the list when I can which will be after I get to look at it in the daylight this weekend and I'll get the photos taken and posted at the same time.

    Just a few pics, Weather not that great this morning.











    Cracked Headlight


    Rust scabs by sunroof


    ARRRRGHHHHH


    A few other problems

    Sunroof Doesn't work (Broken runner)
    Lacquer peeling below OSR side window
    Tailgate window struts weak
    Backlight on odometer seems to disappear after a period of time
    Passenger door - rust scab and bottom trim danaged
    drivers door seal damaged
    Engine hunts at idle, more so when cold.
    Vibration when braking heavily or from speed
    Tracking needs to be checked - suspension arm changed for MoT
    Clutch a little heavy

    It's not fitted with Air Con or heated seats, but, it does have a full OBC and an MoT till Mid November 2010.

    Another good point is that the front and rear number plates are matching from the original Dealer, so that means its not had any accident repairs.

    All together I'm very pleased - it only cost £930 after all
