We did start the car and took it for a test drive. It did seem to drive nicely and there were no whines from the gearbox which I was warned to look out for.
However whilst driving it I found that the drivers seatbelt was sticking and took some persuading to pull out, one of the electric windows was not working properly and I didn't bother looking for anything else that was wrong.
I have seen another advertised, its £34k Sterling and I'm just emailing the owner an exhaustive set of questions befroe I decide whether to spend another day travelling to see it. Here's the advert:
RHD, 1994, Medio Blue with Crema Hide, 34,000 miles and in mint condition, FSH and just cam belted (02/03). Cat 1 Alarm, multi stack CD player, aircon, remote central locking, kept in dehumidified garage and dry miles only. £34,000. No expense has been spared in maintaining this car.
