Thumbs up another happy owner

Had my Vel Satis 2.2dci since last October, it had sone 97000 miles then and has done 115000 now, I love it, average 43mpg. Only costs so far have been on a couple of doses of injector cleaner to cure a mile smoking habit, a set of wiper blades, the service today oh and ouch a full set of conti tyres at 550!!!

The only issue I have is the air con stopped working a couple of weeks ago, today I bought a recharge kit from Halfords but it does not seem to have the correct attachment on the hose so looks like it has to go to a garage. Apart from that the car is holding up very well, does not look or drive like a 100K plus car.

My one regret.........I should have looked for a 3.0dci as I now wish I had an auto...anyone wanna swap??!!
