  1. Update, since it's been a while. I ran out of time to do the work to get her through the MOT myself, mainly due to an unexpected house move. So I ended up paying a mechanic to do it. It was Not Cheap. He ran new brake lines front to back and replaced the exhaust and cat. Then later on the infamous EGR valve issue presented itself (and may have been responsible for the poor performance Dave experienced). Since then Nina (as my daughter named her) has motored along no bother. I occasionally get to drive her and she is an absolute hoot. Unfortunately daughter has a black box so I have to beh
  2. Love it. The range is obviously an issue at times but Lisa and I just swap cars if I need to go a long way.

  8. Just an FYI to anyone interested, I'm putting this up for sale. It's running bob on now, but I can't afford the fuel bills any more. I love it very much but I've had my fun. Time to move it on. I'll be looking for £4000. Not shite money, I know.
