Well i picked her up from rugby last night. ( Thank you again to Woodsy for the lift )

She is a MK4 mondeo in Thunder Grey. 08 Plate, Full service history, 1 previous owner, Ghia spec so Sony mp3/6disc in dash, puddle lights, footwell lights, auto lights and wipers, Electric windows x4 etc etc etc. 94k miles, 12 Months MOT, 2l TDCI 140.

As i actually like this car, there may be a few stuble mods made, and i may even push the boat out to a remap..... But all in good time.

The boot is big enough to smuggle immigrants in....... I wonder if this is how Terry got into this country ? :hmm:

A couple of pictures before i clean it sometime in the next few weeks.

I was actually going to buy a titanium x sport, but couldn't quite stretch to or justify the £11000 for a decent one, well, not at the moment anyway. give it a year or so and I may reevaluate.

Body wise it will stay standard, maybe a change of wheels.

Sweet motor but massive, not that that is a bad thing, so this is why you went to rugby!

How much for this little beauty?

I got it for 4250, its going to Need tyres soon ish and tax end of next month, hence the low price.

I've been watching these go with this spec and mileage for around 5.2k

Best thing about getting cars from up north, we saved a grand on Emma's fiesta just because it was selling in York rather than down this way!!

Good value considering what you've got looks tidy!

Welcome to big tyre bills lol

Thats a great price for the car you get, nicely done! :thumbsup:

Try Focus RS tyres, 225/40/R18

Just had to buy a pair for the back of mine, deffo use camskill when you buy them, currently an offer on where you get a £50 fuel voucher when ordering tyres from them, makes the price extremely good. I got two Michelin PS3's for £184 posted :)

Great price!

Good looking car aswell, im due to its age reliabillity will make buying tyres and tax not bad at all as I cant see you having to fork out for anything else soon on it.

Top gear bunch always said it drives aswell as any 3series bmw.

Will look good with some titanium bits on it, they look sweet.
