If you had paid for all the above jobs doing it would have come to about £2500 in parts and labour alone!
Full bound owners pack complete with all owners manuals.
2 x sets of keys and fobs.
Full V5 (In my name)
Couple of minor negative points:
The car has the odd age related mark here and there as you would expect for a vehicle of this age but as you can see from the pics she is very clean.
There is a very small amount of lacquer peel (2"x1") just in front of the o/s front indicator on the wing but I have painted over it with clear lacquer and the dark colour hides it well (Would cost about £60 to get wing painted)
The drivers door central locking sometimes bounces back up after locking , this is not a problem as you can just lock it with the key and it also unlocks again with the fob, happens about 40% of the time.
The aircon blows cold but could be colder, a simple re gas will sort this if you are bothered for the 3 days of warm weather we get every year!

In summing up this is a great genuine family car with a very high spec, its well above average and has been very well cared for.

I would be willing to do a swap/px on w.h.y?
