Time for a quick update...
P.S. I think the car is a Carina E, as it appears to have 5-doors.
Well done VelSatified - I've checked the other photos and it is a Carina.
I returned to work yesterday, and my wife is feeling much better, planning to return to work next week.
Oure Modus has been written off, with our insurers making an interim payment, so I've just been to a local dealer to order its replacement - another Modus. Again it's to be a 1.5dCi 86 with a QuickShift gearbox.
The dealer is going to lend us a car until the Modus is available - probably mid September.
Once again, thanks for the good wishes all.
