Very nice - this is one of those cars that I hated when it first came out, but now it's grown on me (or I've gotten old)
My friend Tom has a couple of these which have now had the full deEGR, deFAP and air doser bypass, and it's goes well for a big car :cheesy:
If I was in the market for a large saloon then I would get one of these.

Vast boot though, it's about the only saloon I'd ever contemplate (alas not sure my back would like it). Autos, meh, I love 'em, but either you get them or you don't, as I keep telling my mate Max here (another auto hater) they're designed to be so simple even American kids can drive them. I'm sure that'll be a ZF too, so well-tested, not a PSA in-house "we can save a bundle and make it ourselves" disaster.

Next car I get for my own use will deffo be an Auto, what is the point in driving in (worsening) urban traffic and constantly working the clutch and gearbox?

Even my kids want auto's.

Ooof, that's a bit of alright, no engine bay pics so dunno the bhp. Looks like it's been garaged the front fogs are still clear.

That's be a seriously cheap way of doing 100K miles over the next 3 years for someone on a budget.

Right click on the picture, hit "copy image location", come here, hit the image tags in the row above the text box (looks like a rectangle with a gorilla holding a balloon in it) and paste your link between the two lots of square brackets.

Auto? Not a problem. Not so low on the miles tho and not sure about red as it attracts psychopaths and traffic cops playing snooker.

True, but it's £300 less than the lower mileage diesel saloon - and I'm sure this V6 would put a smile on my face ( and a hole in my wallet...)
