I've owned 100 cars since 1999.
On 1st April I will be collecting number 101.

It is an economical car, that has 11 months MOT. It is pre 2001 and is the higher tax bracket.

No more clues until tomorrow evening...

I'm confused though, when does poo count begin? The day of collection? The day you agree the sale?
If we are counting anxiety poos, that will be a high number, especially as I've agreed to buy a car I haven't even seen a picture of!

Glad I’m not the only one that suffers anxiety poos. I don’t suffer anxiety in any other form, other than pooing in great numbers before anything out the ordinary

Pick up confirmed for 8.30pm tonight. 

Insurance changed over.

Anxiety poo count = 0

Although I have had to take some heartburn medicine, could be related?

 

There's no way buying a 25 year old car with 209k on the clock that you haven't even seen a picture of would make you nervous is there? 

 

First clue: Engine capacity 1904cc

Economical but engine size dictates higher tax bracket. Gotta be diesel.

 

1,904cc though. Hmm. XUD was 1,905.

VW TDIs seem to be 1,896cc according to wikipedia. Unless it really is an XUD but with a typo.
