Just a few pics of the day out in Aylesham, Norfolk picking up a 16TGS Auto.It had been stood 12 months under a tree hence all the green stuff all over it but with a booster pack it started straight up and drove onto the trailer.Old fella had had it from new with 46000m and full service history.
Another save.
Richard.

Pictures taken this afternoon after washing it 3 times. Still full of bits of tree and god knows what else but gave the door openings a wipe down and A/B/C pillars and inner wings are spotless. Exhaust rear hanger looks to have fallen off but its got a full set of new spheres and full main dealer service history. It even had a genuine "Citroen" battery!
Next step is to get it home and in the garage for a good look underneath etc and see what needs doing for the MOT.

Rough guess, thats 20-25mpg which must have been painful, hope the car was free?

Richard.
A quick guess would be, new rear discs and pads, seems they always do :(
