Its a 2004 3.0i SE with a few extras, obligatory stubby aerial, Memory seats (not heated), Royals MFSW, M illuminated gear knob, M alloys (224?) with very good Eagle 18s. Aftermarket Angel eye headlights, drilled discs and CD changer (never used). I've owned it for just under 2 years and its been great, just a couple of minor niggles sorted very easily. GM5 module relays have been changed due to intermittent door lock problems (so now sorted) and leaking thermostat resulted in a new ‘stat, waterpump and poly belt.

Condition wise its pretty good for a 14 year old car, few chips on the front bumper, slight bubbling on one alloy centre. Couple of minor issues that don't really affect the car, chip on windscreen repaired prior to me and passed two MOTs, Parcel shelf switch broke so shelf stays in down position. Indicator click sometimes doesn't make its sound and part of the front bumper under tray is missing.

The paint (Stirling grey) shines really well with Harley wax, Its been clayed and waxed twice yearly. Garaged when not in use the car hasn't seen rain for at least two years. The roof motor is dry and functions perfectly and the drain holes a clear and drain freely. Service history is a bit thin - stamped service book only. MOTd until next April and serviced in April (all fluids and poly belt, thermostat and water pump ).

It drives really well, no issues I'm aware of, no rattles or shudders from the drive train. smooth gear changes and revs cleanly all the way to the red line (once warm of course). The car thinks its averaging about 36mpg but I think thats optimistic even so its pretty economical for a 3 litre car. Its currently on a private plate (which has now been removed) and folks are amazed when I tell them its 14 years old with 99k on the clock.

I had two brand new E89s before this one and this has been a much less painful ownership than either of them. Total running costs including tax, maintenance and insurance is well under £1000 per year. Depreciation is almost zero.

The car will be available after July 20th but I’m placing the ad now so that any prospective buyer can arrange viewing this weekend if required. I’m just south of Chester about 10 minutes from the main Motorway/dual carriageway network so access is easy.
