Very nice! Looks to have had a new front bumper recently.

I would try http://www.carandclassic.co.uk" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; I would suggest its a probably a but underpriced and £950 would be obtainable.

That is nice. And confirms that I've just removed the factory-fitted radio from my RD estate. I shall have to try and get it overhauled as the tape player no longer works.

Factory sunroof too which was an option, rare to see one like this as most were all company cars and had over 100k on them after 3 years, ours did.

Good luck with the sale.

We have a facebook page which is worth a try too!

Looks great and good value, too. If only it had a turbo or was a petrol job, I'd snap it up :( Meanwhile, I'm still looking.

Turbos are over-rated. I've regressed back to non-turbo and no regrets so far!

Well you can't deny that they're faster! :) Last non-blown turbo I drove (a Xsara estate) was decidedly sluggish.

Thanks for the positive comments, its a shame to have to sell but I've lost my works van due to cut backs and can't bring myself to use it for work every day.
I must agree with the non turbo as its the most economical car I've ever owned an it's not sluggish either!
Oh and the heater and speedo work too!!
Thanks for the link to classic and car Tim, I may try it, but £950 really? Might try between mine and your price.
Steve.

It's the poor acceleration that gets to me... but then my other car is a 3-litre, 24-valve XM so I'm a bit spoilt :?
