    Volvo in, surprisingly it got here under its own steam with a trade plater who then left with someone else in another Volvo, I expected a flatbed. 

    It doesn't appear to have been washed or valeted (dealer has only had it a week or so) but that's a plus in my books as I'll do it myself. Little bit of paint pen to clean off the windcsreen, sticker residue from a GB sticker on the back, etc. 
    First impressions are very good - it feels a lot faster and more planted than my C30, with a lovely smooth and direct gearshift. 
    The driver's seat bolster has a crack in it - TADTS, it's a synthetic material, but as far as R-Design seats go it's in good nick. Nothing is broken and everything feels clean and tidy - the screen protector is still on the Parrot kit, the R-Design badge in the grille hasn't lost its decal (a lot do), load cover present, two keys, books and history. All the pads are new, oil is fairly clean, and in the last year it's had a new brake master cylinder and new wishbones and droplinks. It's certainly been well cared for.



    This little display on the mirror caught my eye, I thought 'this is an R-Design not an SE' - then I realised it's a compass! 



    Happy days. More to come...

    In Civic news, the caliper is most definitely knackered. I need to keep moving it about on private* land as we've got tradesmen in at the moment, and this has revealed that the caliper is dragging like fuck, and well and truly knackered. 
    Once it's MOT'd (going to have to pay for a retest unfortunately), it's off to a mate of mine in Huddersfield (same chap that's minding the Micra a few pages back) who knows the car and is over the moon with it. He offered me my money back on it which I'd be daft to refuse, and that's part of the reason I managed to get the V50. 

    Part of the reason that I got the V50 is that over the last year my dad's really started to show his age, and he's hung up his spanners. 😔 I need something more modern and less tired than a 20 year old Civic to use daily, and seeing as this V50's been kept so well and they're really simple to work on as long as you have Torx keys, it seemed like a no brainer.
