Thanks John.

It's all relatively easy stuff too, unless something is lurking that we've not found/been told about.

have already brought a coil pack for the massive sum of 18.95.

Will make a change working on something other than the D3

Thanks Guys.

It's safely tucked up in the garage now having picked it up this morning.
Bearing in mind we only paid 185 for it, I wasn't surprised when the MOT failure check online showed up a couple more points than we'd been told about, but they are only a headlamp bulb and both front CV gaiters.
On the whole it's in great condition under the tree sap and leaves it's covered in.

The expensive one we've found is a new battery, as the old one won't take a charge or even light up the warning lights on the dash.

However, the rough running and suspected new coil pack required isn't going to be an issue.
I jump started it off the D3 and it was running as rough as anything, but then I do find that 4 cylinder engines run a lot better when all 4 spark plugs actually have a plug cap and lead attached to them

With jump leads attached it will sit and idle nicely now I've put all 4 leads on, but when you take the jump leads off it goes all lumpy and dies, a new battery should sort that.

It's really dirty on the outside, and needs a clean on the inside, but it's half term soon at college so he'll be able to sort that out then.

We've had a good search through the inside and found some interesting stuff.
The only thing in the glovebox was a Condom, still in it's packet I should add.
In the drivers door were a load of payslips.
Then the centre console looked a bit wonky and not clipped down properly. I pulled it off to reseat it and underneath was a collection of Rizler papers, filters, and small plastic bag with the remnants of somebodies stash

Used cars, don't you just love em.

Nasher.

I was thinking the same thing but then realised it couldn't possibly be mine. What's a payslip?

So when hes pulled over for some offence or just a check you had better make sure you remove all of the previous owners "gear" then.
