I hope that you get a fair price for it mate.
Hi there. Father keeps the Scenic garaged, popping out only from time to time for a short run to the town centre (Bolton). That's one reason he had to have a new battery, and the reason the mileage is so unbelievably low. It's used regularly, but only briefly. Thanks for the reply

Good idea. Now why didn't I think of that, doh!

When can you come over..?

Unlike a trader, your only obligation is to describe a vehicle accurately, and sell a roadworthy vehicle....
Thanks for the down-to-earth advice, Paul. I'm pretty sure my fatha just wants the space, now he's got his Pe*g*eot 307.

Hey, nice swear filter

Once again, all very much appreciated. What a forum
