If you have a G3 i could buy it off you? - You could get yr belts done with the money..............But right thing to do, it is stored outside........dont put your hand break on.

handbrake left on in wet / cold weather can seize on by "rusting" or big freeze in the cables. Leave it in first gear or P.

Paul - selling mine (the identical one to yours at Trafford).

Why not buy mine (discount for cash) and just swap the plates - no one will know but us - and anyone reading this, and the VIN won't match and - not such a great idea after all..... :eek:

Unless you want my engine...... :)

Also check that where you park it is classed as off the road, basically anywhere other than you own property is on road, 9/10 communal parking areas or bays are on road and don't park on the verge, you will end up with a fine.

A few reasons. Need an estate, getting fed up with spending £70 a week on commuting (22-25 mpg just isn't funny when it's out my pocket!)

Plan on buying an Alfa 'project' so all's not lost. Just might have to park the oil burning Swede on the other side of the car park at the next Tarfford meet :eek:

:lol:

Don't do it:tut:, do like me sorn it, week car boring ford focus estate, weekends (hot summer lets hope) country lanes v6 sound as you put the throttle down at 3000 rpm and don't forget the meets at trafford, its winter and the head wins over the heart but the heart comes to life when the suns shines:cool:
