That was mine if it was November I would have had my winter OZ wheels on. Still got it and drive it every day. Live in Carlisle and work out side the city so use the M6 regularly. It's my third originally wanted a diesel estate bought two but both well used and rotten bought this from a scrapyard in Dumfries for £350 2 owners last deceased and car ended up being scrapped. Too good for that so I bought it in 2015. Initially hated the cost of filling up the petrol tank every fortnight (£90) but have since started driving it sensibly. Had most of the usual problems over the last few years but the forum has the answer every time you just need to ask. Love the car but would swap in a blink for the right (dark blue) estate with a diesel engine.

The 2.1 was brilliant on fuel, we ran the estates for about 15 years, on our North Scotland trips we always got 50+ MPG. Used to stay at Carlisle M6 Travelodge on the way.
