"Totally pristine and unmarked" according to the dealer yet a 50 pence sized rust spot and a misaligned door! Also quite a rare Kompressor model because according to the dealer it is also turbocharged:D

Yet to see an unmarked/pristine 10 year old car so took with a pinch of salt but the car is in vgc and been well maintained,don't think door is misaligned though and sure there is a quick fix so will search the forum......

Drive immediately North to Lancashire. It fine and warm here.

Good Luck with the car and perhaps you may see less of the Mrs than you do now when the sun pops out.

She wont get much shopping in the boot though.

With the roof up there's loads of room in the boot. Boot down. we can get 3 middle ish holdalls and a camera bag AND wife shoes - if you leave them loose.
