Have good fun with the new car (and I do mean that in the right way). Do you know if it has the hydro pneumatic suspension?

Yes, it's not an X7, one of the last mk2's. I hope it's ok, there wasn't much details on the e-bay add, but I phoned the seller before I put in my bid.

That looks really good Davey! I like the C5 with C4 headlamps & the rear lights look great too. Very unusual in white, probably almost as much of a PIA to keep clean as black!

Best, bit, the price. Less than a grand, even with train down and diesel home and a chippy supper! Bad bit, MOT only to mid june. Now does anyone want a C2 with the fullest service history ever seen, a newly repaired gearbox, new battery and broken front springs? Free new springs included but not fitted :lol: :lol: :lol:
I'll give you £39.50 and another chippy supper for the C2.

And I wouldn't be surprised if, whilst he was doing this, someone insisted on parking their car next to his whilst there were plenty of spaces elsewhere in the car park. :roll:

That's normal around here. It seems that cars feel lonely if parked on their own...

Davie, good luck with the new motor :-D Hope it's all OK..

The C2 at 4 pm this afternoon after a clean and before it got sold. 2nd time I have sold a car to a youngish lassie and 2nd time there has been no hassle. I told her the good the bad and the ugly, she loves it she hands over the asking price. Finished.

A sincere wish of a lot of us Davie... :roll: I'd be happy without one...

She's a lucky lassie. That's a lovely job you did on the C2.

I agree wholeheartedly with Jim. They're a pain in the arse. Sadly they are necessary, so one might as well have something interesting.

If I could live without one, I would. I love cars, always have. Got to a stage in my life now where I just want transport. That is all. I don't want to drive everywhere at 150mph or go as fast as I can all the time, or spend too much time fixing stuff.

It's considerably cheaper and infinitley better than public transport though.
