ebay + booze = T5 purchase

Post by Welly » Thu May 29, 2014 7:21 am

Nice story about a guy spotting, buying and collecting a Volvo bought on ebay (ignore the first page and a half of misunderstanding it does get better): http://autoshite.com/topic/17013-220ish ... he-result/
Cars in my care:

2005 Volvo S40 T5 German Diesel botherer currently lacking front tyre grippage
2010 Citroen C4 1.6 HDi turbo de' explosions, bizarre gearbox model
2010 Renner Twingo refreshingly simple
