    Mmm 198,000 miles---- very scruffy inside doesn't bode too well. Might clean up - might need the rear jacking points/rear subframe mounts rebuilt-- and no mention of the rear self levelling. Might be a money pit!

    Still looks an honest although used motor - probably worth more in bits..

    Probably... I'm looking for a banger to drive to Italy over Christmas and did consider it... watching the auction, if no-one bids I may go have a look...

    Says this in the ad:
    Rear jacking points/rear subframe mounts are good, come and take a look. Also self levelling suspension is working as it should.

    Must have read your mind. :D
