2001 Y PLATE £1100.

Understated, reliable, fast and economical. Recession beater.


CD PLAYER - controls on steering wheel.
WITTER TOW BAR -I've never towed anything and neither did the previous owner.

The list goes on....

This car has a massive spec and was imported when it was brand new direct from the dealer for the UK market...

Very Low Mileage – 86,970K miles.

£300 engine remap making it a very quick and very economical car - 50+mpg on a journey - around 43mpg around town.
Extensive service history.

Timing Chain so no need to worry about changing a belt.

Thanks to the remap it has the power when needed and is very economical...

The are some marks as you would expect with a used car, the rear bumper paint finish is a little tatty when looked at closely and the alloys have some marks.

The drivers seat wont recline at the moment, this is because the adjuster has popped out. I haven’t had time to align it and put it back in. But this is a no parts required fix.
