Your C5 was a real bargain!

I do like the Sabb too 8-) Certainly one of the best looking 9-5s of that shape I have seen. Has it got later 9-3 wheels? They set it off a treat.

The wheels are aftermarket from a barely heard of Aussie wheel manufacturer. A set of 17's from memory was £220 off eBay. :D

No the C5 has 103k on her. The reason she was cheap was the paint work was in shocking condition and looked like the laquer was lifting. Spent the best part of a day with G3 cutting compound and then some Meguiars Gold Class Wax and she came up good as new. The interior looked like the previous owner carried lots to the dump and the spare wheel well had about an inch of shingle in it! I gave the wash pad boys at work £20 to clean her up and she came back clean as a whistle.

:cd:
