You were going through Leadenham, and I thought I recognised the wheel trims, then the registration number looked familiar! I had thoughts on this one myself; did look nice as it drove past! 8)

This one is sold Russ (Mat - can you change the original title?). RD is quite low spec but still has (IIRC) eleccy front windows and central locking.

Correct Mr DW - the luxury of central locking and leccy windows. Not even a rev counter on this one, I get an analogue clock where the rev counter should be :D

I hate driving anything without a rev counter, dunno why but I'd have that over electric windows and central locking given a choice.

Me too. I usually shift gear by feel and revs rather than speed - so a rev counter is very preferable.

I don't find a lack of rev counter a problem at all. Seems easy enough to feel when a gearchange is needed. It can be quite interesting to see the revs at times, but it's not essential.

Agreed entirely, which makes it all the more strange why I hate being without one!
