True, C15 is also on the must have list but when was the last time you saw a Visa knocking about on the road?

Yes that true, but why do you think it's that way. :lol:

I doubt it was because of their fantastic build quality.

A mate of mine's been showing me a Haynes manual this afternoon for a VISA that he bought at a boot sale yesterday for 50p. He seemed very pleased with it.

Not sure why he wanted it though.

All you need to do it find a car to go with it also probably for 50p!

Hows the new TXD auto doing Ken?

Yep,

I have one, 1986 D reg, nearly 192K miles, not on the road, but on the drive "SORN"...

I have owned it since Aug 1991.

I am working my way round it, should be ready this summer !!!...

Regarding performance, with the diesel lump and the light body it is acceptable, as is the ride...

Cheers

I've got one too!!!. A Visa Haynes Manual, that is. Mind you I've got manuals for the GS and ZX diesel, not to mention Renault Fuego. All bootfair stuff. :lol:

BTW if anyone needs a ZX Diesel manual (early), I'd swap for a GS/GSA manual!
