Re: Another 12 months MOT

Interesting,i assume the "family" refers to the 7 seater and not the estate.

Re: So what shall I replace it with

I bought a Mondeo Estate and have been very pleased with it so far,it's the Titanium Sports so the ride is a bit on the firm side but in standard trim the ride is fine and the 2.0ltr Diesel is basically a Peugeot engine.

Re: Whats my car worth?

The A/C is a leak on the condenser as if you give it a regas it works fine for a week or so and it was traced to that,as for the wing i have been keeping an eye out for used one the same colour but they are few and far between.If it wasn't for the fact that i might be losing the garage i keep it in ...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

I'd say 99% of the farmers round where i live are still using defenders in one guise or another,the closest farm to me has a 92' TDI and a 01' TD5,both are in daily use and are beaten to a pulp but just keep on going,they have both done over 200k miles.Neither have ever been welded either.

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Reflecting on how quiet things have got hereabouts. Collected my new trailer today & stashed it in the campervan's storage spot for now. (Overpriced few square yards of derelict WW2 airfield c/w fences & cctv - someone had the luck or foresight to snap up). https://i.imgur.com/Eb0Qd8G.jpg https://i...
