GT Diesel

Hello from Co. Durham

Hi all,
bought myself a low mileage (47K) GT Diesel on a 55 plate this week and I'm looking forward to driving it and hoping that it proves to be a prudent buy. At the moment its in a garage having a full service including the timing belt / waterpump change so I've not had much chance to get behind the wheel but I must admit I'm impressed with the torque available!
Its grey with red leather and bodywise is very very good barring a scuff on the front bumper. Few jobs need doing though:
* Airbag light intermittently comes on when driving.
* Wheels need a refurb
* Climate needs a regas
* Knock from the exhaust - exhaust needs rehanging
* Little bit of lacquer peel on the roof (tiny amount but my eyes have been drawn to it!)
* A good blast down the motorway to clear the soot! It had only done 3000 miles in the last 18 months.

So there's a bit of work to do and I'm sure this forum is going to come in very handy,

Thanks folks. Hoping to get my car back on monday evening as the garage didn't have the locking tools to be able to carry out the cambelt change so the car is still with them.

Hi I think the colour is Grigio Lipari but i'm not 100% sure as the car is locked away in the local garage at the moment. But when I checked the sticker on the underside of the boot I'm sure thats the colour it quoted. Either way I'll get a photo up soon.
