Thanks zipdip - love it so far & will get the ATF changed & would never have used the parking brake so thx.Great car I see you got one with plenty on it,you cannot go wrong for £8 grand,the mileage is nothing for one of these,I suppose it came with plenty of service history,a couple of tips you are well into having the ATF in the box changed for a second time so unless it has been done recently I would get that done,and when you park use the electronic parking brake instead of hitting the park on the column,reason is if you don't use the electronic parking brake you will lose it,the thing will stop working,good news you are near Wayne Gates,so well done.
That's bad luck.Sad news. Took it in for MOT and check up at Wayne Gates in North London, and Terry told me the timing chain and other bits need replacing and not good idea to drive it far as was - - £4.5k plus another £1-1.5k of other things needing doing. So I’ve had to sell it for £5.7k (paid £8k three mths ago). So I guess the 166K miles caught up with it.
Just to clarify.
I hope not!
