147 1.6

Wave Accidental ***** Owner

I recently acquired my 2001 ***** 147 as it turned out to be much less hassle to buy a new (old) car than try to register my current (old) car here in Spain, to where I have recently moved and where I speak not a word of the lingo. My old car, bought in France and carrying french plates, is now consigned to the garage for the time being till I figure out what to do with it.

During a discussion with a colleague I learned he was offloading a car ....and it just happened to be the said ***** ... could just as easily have been a Ford Focus ....but I guess I got lucky.

So far (had it a week now) I'm liking it. I have the odo flashing thing which I'm trying to suss out but other than that, and the fact that it's a petrol engine (suddenly I'm fascinated by the average km/litre display and have set the speed alarm to 80km/h) I really quite like it. I drove a Golf V for 8 years prior to picking up the ***** and I was happy with it's austere reliability ... the *****, by comparison, has a lot more character.

I ignore the alarm incidentally.

Anyway, already started perusing the forums and am so far impressed that *****'s have generated such a sophisticated and knowledgeable e-community. I look forward to posting my first dumb question .... go easy on me ...por favor.
