So, what have I bought?!

Post by Dollywobbler » Wed Sep 12, 2012 7:57 pm

It occurs to me that I've no idea what the spec actually is on a TXD. I've owned two TGDs and a Valver (plus the Mk1 RD of course) so I guess TXD is 'like a TZD but not as good.' What does that actually mean? What seats? What toys?

I know I'll find out when I collect it, but that's not until Sunday!

Cool. So still 'keep fit' windows in the back? That's fine with me. I'm going to get in trouble about the seats though. Rachel doesn't like the GTi seats...

IMHO the GTi seats are some of the finest of any car evah. Especially on a long journey. So a trip to Provence to persuade the good wife might be in order :) lol

Well bud, you have lost the bet, its silver.

And i think there are a lot more than 8 TXD owners around. I know of 3 Estates as well.

Well, it's now insured and a neighbour is giving me a lift (most of the way) to collect it. That was good timing and has saved a £60 train ticket!
