So today has been interesting....

On my way north I went to see a 55 plate C2S, 109k miles, most recent service a year ago at Northway, this was a major inc a borescope which was clear.

Looked the car over, cold start, long drive all good.

As a result we have agreed a deal, subject to Northway doing a PPI inc borescope, which is taking place right now..!

If all is OK I will be collecting the car later today, so I have everything crossed!

Thanks for all the advice and input so far! Thumb
