In the Eiffel bit of Deutschland for a wee hol, visited the nurbirgring again and found it was the truck grand Prix. Loads of American trucks and cowboy hats. Brown car is doing well, oil use seems to have got much better and it's averaging 47.5 mpg at autobahn speeds with Aircon at full pelt.Will be for sale on return to fund a 4x4.

Anyone fancy it for 300 quid before I put a wheel bearing on and subject myself to daft ebay questions? Will need front tyres soon (205/55/16), and a  wheel bearing as its noisy,. EML doesn't come on at all and it uses about 3/4l of 5/30 per 1000 miles. New rear discs and pads, new rear drop links, so everything on the advisory list has been done.MOT'd until March 19. Ice cold aircon. Just done 1500 miles fully loaded and never missed a beat except from the wheel bearing which is gradually getting noisier- I'll check out to see which one it is.

Brown cars are for winners.

Saloon with rear wash/wipe is a neat touch.

I really enjoyed mine - but the oil consumption got to the point that it fucked the CAT and it was game over.

 

Very comfortable, and hilarious MPG for a petrol.  Well done on a quick sale.

Oh my

I wanted Petrol,Auto,Aircon,Towbar and leather for various reasons, and it's got the lot. Drives well, but there are some suspect areas underneath that I'm a bit wary of prodding. I'll bask in its awesomness for a few days before I break out the screwdriver...
