I bought it at auction for 1,700 - and have spent very little on it other than regular maintenance plus timing belts (2 to date, though the book says the 1.9dti should be done every 45k miles!), the alternator (doing the well documented clattering thing when I bought it), brakes and pads, and tyres! After finding this forum my hubby sorted out the heater blower and the dud bulbs on the dash one afternoon a while back - fab advice.

I'd been debating whether or not to hang on to it. I need to change the driveshafts as they're starting to make a bit of noise, and my mechanic says the clutch doesn't have long. Passed it's emissions no prob last MOT. I can't believe what mileages some are getting on here! I always thought this car was indestructable! Now I know.
