Returning to the fold - I'm a 147 Owner Again!
I've been present for the last 2 1/2 years over on the 916 GTV / Spider pages and yesterday bought a nice little 147 2.0 twinnie to go with! I used to have a 147 before I moved away for a couple of years and I'm quite pleased to be back!
This one is Red (my wife loves it!), has cloth seats (would've loved leather but cars with leather are few and far between in these parts) and it seems cared for and in really good condition for an 02 on nearly 90k. It needs a monster of a clean though!! Belts were done two years ago and it has an MoT until March so hoping for a good 9 months motoring before getting hands dirty with a full service / belts at home (will be my first attempt at belts!).
The only thing I need to sort is a missing headlight washer from the offside. Aparently they're difficult to get hold of??
I did think that the cruise control wasn't working, but having looked in the manual apparently you need to hold the stalk forward for three seconds, so I'll check that on a run in the next few days!
Anyway, just wanted to say hello again!
