Top Man James

Looking great in black.

1.8 or 2 litre? I'm guessing 1.8 as like me, no spots.
Leather or cloth seats?
Heated bum seats?

Mine's a 2006 1.8, 24000 on the clock with the above.

You are going to have some fun.

Hi Scooter/Kip,

It's 2.0 litre, cloth seats, no spots........but goes like hot s**t off a stick.....the cornering is mega, I drove a MK2 a few years ago, but this feels better :thumbup:

I'm doing my "Highlights" tonight, and starting to talk in a camp voice, and I don't pick it up until 04/02 !

I asked him to take off the hard top, and when the folding roof came up it was so tight and creased it did not look like it had ever been put up ! (it's only done 1200 miles in the last year.......so needs a good blast to "decoke" it :D

Scooter !

got insurance for £305 in the end, they would only "mirror" my no claims from my other car at a reduced rate, and then if claim free for a year give me the full no claims for next year which should half it again !...so not so bad....any chance of telling me what yours cost?

Only 8 more "sleeps" to go before i pick it up ! :D

My insurance with esure was £220 for 2011/12.

My 2006 1.8 Series 3 purchased in Feb 2009 with 12000 on the clock for £9995.

It has the option pack with full leather, heated seats and air con (which is great for clearing windscreen in the winter).

Can't wait to hear how you get on with yours.

Congratulations Jimbo.
Don't let anyone tell you that it's a hairdresser's car.
Can I have a little less off at the sides this time and something for the weekend?

Yes ignore all the ignoramus hairdresser comments- its a proper rear drive car and THE BEST handling car I have ever had :D

Sure you will have many trouble free miles and thats a lovely example.

Calm down Jimbo. It's not like you're getting a new watch or something. 8)
