Greetings Keith

I owm an Avantime. As most on here are aware it's not been trouble free motoring!

Anyway they can be picked up for 6-7k now - the main problem is that there are only c.300 in the country. Most are coming up to 5 years old - time for a belt change. If you want one get one that has had it or knock down the price! The belt change is c.1200!!!

I can honestly say that I love mine. I test drove an Audi A5 the other week and whilst it's a fantastic car I wouldn't give up the Avantime for it - I would have to own both!

People do stop and look! Have a go in one. As a motorway car it is fab!!

As for coil problems I am keeping a spare in the boot so the RAC can mend it saving taking it to a garage.
