Missed a stop so had to rethink my route. Managed to figure it out so I still arrive on time. Phew.

It's dog rough,but goes like a train.

Feels like 200k! But MoT'd until Jan 2020, so all good. 

 

It probably won't stay long, you know me. 

 

It would be £3.50 per ticket. :D

Just wondering, does this count as a 'Base'?

Keep fit windows, no central locking, no sunroof, and worst of all.... no wood inlays in the dash or doors!

Well bought and not much to go wrong;

I thought my 214i with plastic tree on the dash but not doors and a sunroof was pretty base spec;

Obviously I was mistaken, Good luck with the sack cloth and ashes.

Yes, the 218D was the most basic model.  It equates the the 214i (which succeeded the carburettored plain 214).

 

SD = Si (and has bits of wood)

 

SLD = SLi

 

Here's the 218D I owned for a while last year

I do have to make a choice, as I was sort of planning on 'crayoning' this one for Retro Rides this summer. 

 

But if anyone wants to convince me otherwise, either cross my palm with £250ish or shush.

There was or is one of these on eBay in North Yorkshire - £1,200 or thereabouts. Piqued my interest anyway.

Top bombing though. :)
