I had one you'll love it but make sure it's been serviced,

I've got a set of roof bars you can have if you pm me a delivery address

P.S. towing I'd get 11 to the gallon

Nice one Olly.

Bring it to Church and we will get that nice lady in pink to sprinkle it with Holy Water for luck.

I remember what me and a mate did to an 1800 Subaru pickup. Surprisingly good offroad til we got it stuck on the edge of an old railway cutting

Giz a go?

Olly

Thats Nice.

I had a Legacy Turbo estate for a few years that towed my 4M Flatacraft around no problem.

By the way, don't even dream about trying to get the plugs out without the special plug spanner. I made one that you can have if you need it.
Also a puller for the crankshaft pulley for when the oil seal goes, and a locking block for the Camshafts for when I replaced the cam belt.

Nasher.

great car - mate's got same one in green that he tows a big boston whaler with...whilst they're not as luxurious as german cars internally, there's not much out there that'll be as fun to drive and be able to tow a rib without spending ten times as much on a motor.
