Newwwwwwwbie lass with a V6 wagon

After much searching, I picked up a 2000 156 V6 wagon tonight. She's soooooo lovely and I think a bit of a bargain. (having looked at the work he's had done to it over the past few years he's had her)

Thanks to anyone who helped with questions in preparation for me parting with my hard earned cash - the exhaust was replaced last year so for those guys, I'll be keeping it until it needs replacing, then I'll pick your brains again!

I can't post pics yet I'm afraid, picked her up in the dark and I can't find my camera cable but I will.

I shall now try and get more involved with the club!

Cheers,

Sarah

Re: Newwwwwwwbie lass with a V6 wagon

Gave her a good clean today, found all the stone chips, touch ups, loose bits etc that we hadn't noticed - not too bad, she is a workhorse after all! Pics finally;

Hi Sarah. Welcome to AO.

That's a lovely looking Sportwagon you have but those orange side indicators really stuck out against dark blue paintwork. Get 'em replaced pronto!

Excellent - that was going to be my first question!! Having replaced many an orange blight I was hoping someone would be able to point me in the direction of replacement indicators for her. (ebay chap has a new pair for £14.99 inc P&P and amber bulbs - what sort of price should I be looking for? last pair I bought were for a Toyota and £10)

wrinx - I have been looking for MONTHS they really are rather rare - which IMHO is a good thing. There's one in Northants, dark blue also and I know of another dark blue, low mileage (31K) that's for sale in Glasgow area if you're prepared to travel!

Re: Newwwwwwwbie lass with a V6 wagon

Thanks, afraid I've decided the V6 is too much with the amount of mileage I do, but even decent 2.0s are hard to find.....for my meagre budget

Enjoy your car
