300 miles to £60 isnt tooooo bad really!? Specially with the amount you kept playing with it!

But IMO it moved like turbo sh*t off a greasy teflon shovel!!!!!!

WTF are you on about mate?

Jam has had Fords for years, and is at the point of being sick of them, now he's gone out and bought something different.
Bring me a Ford which will be better than his Volvo?
Its 4x4, V70R in manual which is rare as fook, looks like a sleeper, goes like f*ck, sounds f*cking awesome...

It won't rott like a Ford, it hasnt got the high pricetag like any Ford with the same power and/or engine, and actually has the 4x4 system Ford didnt have the balls and use on their ST and RS models.

IMO it owns.

relax buddy i was only joking

i know..had i paid that for a cossie it would have been an utter dog... i know now the previous owner ran it on a shoestring so im going to have a problem or two relating to that. seems to go alot better and pop and bang now it runs super (which its supposed to after its been remapped) after being run on whatever was cheapest which i dare say wasnt doing it too many favours...and we know about the interior. its a tlc thing. some love and a few cosmetic bits and bobs and it will be nice and tidy :rolleyes: :lol:

apart from the small oil leak which needs sorting im happy...not sure how it sounded from the outside tho. any thoughts on that one welcomed!

Jam.

ill be happy once the current one is cleaned..if its that bad then i can make a decision based on that...i did bounce the limiter when i went past jamie in 2nd :D yeah i dont know the area that well...to be honest but the run to the pub was fun...i didnt see the opportunity to pass be honest!

yeah cossies with issues are normally more trouble than the cheap price lets on....i know how much your top end rebuild was and on a cheap dog its just not worth it! we need to have a bad ass RR day :D

bugger...just done one..:D

not set a date yet..it wont be for a few months yet needs warmness to dry out :lol: and ill be leaving it there for a few days and getting a train home because its a complicated interior its going to need more time than a normal cloth or an all leather one. and ive emailed a main dealer for a wheel. so it matches....think they are about 250 for a genine one...plus having the bag swapped and the light put out.
