    He has, hasn't he.

    For less than the price of a new entry-ish level car you could have a really nice modern classic.

    I think its a beauty and worth every penny at that price. I think that is a fantastic car. If I had the money I'd buy it tomorrow without a doubt

    The 36 is lovely but I'd take the cossie all day long. 190's are special!!!

    ^^ Being an Auto, lets that k reg one down imo.. In most people eyes not the colour to have either (my one happens to be almandine as well!).

    But the most interesting thing about it is the fact that its a Sportline Cossie??

    Never thought such a car existed. Its got the 'Sportline' Steering wheel and gear knob, but surely the 'Sportline' suspension wouldnt replace the standard 16v suspension....

    That one
    Why do people continue to call the 2.5 a Cosworth, when my understanding was it's only the 2.3 that is the proper Cosworth.

    The first one is an auto too.

    i'm sure i've heard that the 2.3 and 2.5 aren't proper cosworths, i may be wrong though.

    Me neither. One or t'other. Cosworth/16 valve or Sportline, but never both.
