That was me ;-). I use it to commute to work.
Today and tomorrow (17 and 19 Sept 2016) it is at the classic car show in Manchester

Unfortunately, it has oil in the coolant and it is thousands of pounds to get it repaired. If anyone is happy to repair it for me (leaking head gasket and failing turbo) I am happy to pay £800; unfortunately I know nothing about mechanics...

Ive got a tct block attached to an autobox here.. but I do think ive got rid of the turbo units..

is it a turbo issue or a oil cooler issue..? I know it can be either as water passes through the turbo as well as oil..

The garage checked the oil cooler and told me that that was fine; It is, as far as I understood the Turbo and/or Headgasket which they advised to get repaired both. The thing you have, would that solve the issue of my car?

Thanks for replying; much appreciated!!!!

Hans, if your nearby to Manchester drop me a PM as I can reccomend a local specialist but £800 may stretch the budget for a headgasket replacement which is more than likely the issue to be fair as when the turbos go they very very rarely leak water and oil and mix it .

Spotted recently in Congleton so I guess the HG issue has been resolved. Looking good, too!

Yes, indeed, someone on the forum was so kind to repair it!!! It is still going strong with all the gadgets working (except occasionally the cruise control not working and then later it works again!). I am so pleased he repaired it and I can still use it!
