Thanks DM. I hope he's still happy with the car.

The bit I really like about yours are the round heater controls, simple, stylish and very practical. They suit the interior to a T in my view.

I have three '96 2.1 estates - well two and a half, all registered in January, last of the manuals and mechanical fuel pumps.

I definitely prefer the dials to the push button control, which looks out of place in a S1 dash.

I think Ian is very happy with the car.

Roatry are fine, when they work, but every one Ive seen and tried have always got a problem controlling the cable behind the dash! My SED is like that now, but more important things need sorting first!

Mine had a cable problem due to incorrect adjustment, now sorted.

Very nice looking Xm, looks very low mileage?

I think S1 red is a different shade to S2 reds?
