The C5 plan crumbled like French interior trim in sunlight. It sold, but the seller who offered it me (for a very tempting price) didn't actually bother to tell me. Unfriendly behaviour.
But, I clocked up 300 miles in the Rover on Wednesday, which rather convinced me that I'd be a fool to sell. I've really settled into it, I've just fitted four brand new all-season tyres and those heated seats are amazing! I think I'll let it soak up a Welsh winter and then look to move it on in the New Year, when I still definitely won't have had my money's worth out of those tyres...
It has taken me a while to tune into the engine's lack of grunt. There are times, like going uphill, where you just have to accept that it isn't going to be quick. Or you have to live with 6000rpm to try and make it quick when it doesn't want to be. Not relaxing. But, it does cover distance with ease and leaves me feeling unflustered - which is pretty much my key requirement in the 'vaguely modern' slot on the fleet.
