Meridian with the sensor and it works but the wipers don't!!

Half leather but that's only the half still attached to the seats and the steering wheel is worn thru the leather AND the foam to the plastic!!!

Is defiantly more sporty than my normal psa vehicles I've had... Ie a lot harder :)

In gear acceleration is pretty good :)

That's a great salesman speech, KP, you've missed your true calling in life!

The 306 was the first car I imagined as my first car! Have yet to own one to see if it'll live up to my expectations. Waiting for a tidy Roland Garros to turn up.

So is this a daily runaround for a while?

That's alright KP, the whole thing is off anyway - I'm very angry :evil:

Yesterday, a friend of mine in Manchester contacted me after a spotted a Vel Satis sitting out the back of a Seat dealership. He went in and enquired - 3.0 dV6 Initiale traded in last week. He got the number, I called the sales guy - "how much do you need for it?", "£300", "sold". Flight booked, car paid for over phone, sorted. Got a call this afternoon. "Very sorry but the car was actually sold on Friday and hadn't been marked as sold". Yeh, sorry doesn't quite cut it, they better be ready for an ear full tomorrow. :x

On the plus side, this is easing the pain.

A very pretty car, always fancied one but they were always a bit too pricey.

Shame about the cheap Vel Satis, that would have been a steal.

The Mazda is nice I bet, they are a good looking car and were always a rare sight. There are two which live just round the corner from me, one is very tidy but the blue on is mainly made from rust, still goes though!
