Thanks for the considered reply Red Dwarf, your comments along with the contents of this forum are a big help.
I no longer do 100 miles/day plus I like the 1.8, cam chain, naturally aspirated fair on fuel but cheap on servicing.
The car is a facelift model, has sat nav and is low mileage, I have asked about the air con and have an offer of a free re-gas within the year if necessary, I will do a temperature test before committing though, easy check.
I have one issue to resolve re tyres as there is a brand new odd one on the front, when I test drove it the steering wheel was a tad off and it felt as though the tracking wasn't quite right, (pot hole, kerb heavy impact most likely), so a thorough examination of the front end will take place.
I like the black interior and drilled pedals just wish it had folding mirrors but will compromise on that, otherwise it felt like a more refined version of mine.
