How big a favour?

I'm the wrong side of Edinburgh for Dalgety Bay - it's about 100mile round trip...worth posting in the Scottish section, there's a couple of guys around Livingston which is a good bit closer, and a few in Fife itself.

Re: OMG! I think I've found my next car.

It says its a Lusso, but a 52 plate Lusso should have leather and cruise control and this doesnt seem to have either.

In fact not having these makes it a Turismo.

Although it does have skirts. which ehhh....

Coz its not a Veloce, too high and the wrong dials.

Now that youve said it first, I dont like Proteo red either, it needs highly polished or it looks like an old ford.

Re: OMG! I think I've found my next car.

Haha... no the colour isn't ideal. The only thing that puts me off slightly.


But it's so rare for a interior facelift 156 manual. It says Lusso on the V5 but it's got veloce skirts.. and alfatex seats.... it has veloce also scripted in the wings and it's got that awesome V6 powerplant.



Also when the interior facelift models came about it all went to pot. All the 2003 cars have white clocks regardless of the model.

I can't afford GTA insurance for at least another year so that's out of the question in the short run.

The cloverleaf is in the process of being bought by my cousin (in law sort of). Another convert.

A big favour. in terms of £50 Jamieboy. And a candle lit dinner for two when I get up there to collect. (if its a bargin.)

Well you certainly wouldn't get an invite.. I have a colleague in Edinburgh who may be going to look at it this weekend for me...

Still not sure if I can deal with the colour issue.....
