    This VR is looking great @ 318k

    Lots of work must have gone into it but I bet that mileage will put most off sadly. I doubt there are any parts on that car that have actually done 318k without replacement or refurb.

    This is so true people are so obsessed with mileage in this country, modern classics are very usable so one should expect high mileage and purchase a car on history, maintenance, chassis and body condition. Some of the worst cars to buy are garage queens but I suppose if you spend the money on them you should get it back but you have to pay a high premium in the first instance.

    Indeed, my own drives much nicer with regular use! That said I've not used it for 2-3 weeks and now the battery is flat though

    Must find that draw at somepoint - dies after a week of being left.

    +1 for Merc 190D's So so cheap, always liked the look of them.

    Keep looking at Sierra XR4i's, or 4x4 my mates mum had one, always thought it was cool. Bit weary of the ford classic scene though:

    Also tempted by a older Jag XJ. Mid 90's with the square headlight:

    Jim, your 5 series looks like a good buy, been looking at 330 E46's. But a 5 series seems like its a similar price!

    I sometimes have a leftfield taste in cars, aside from a lot VW's, Audi's and Merc's mentioned from the era I also like:

    Vauxhall Carlton (Dad had a couple and always liked that era of Vauxhall's headlight design, dislike modern 1990s+ Vauxhalls tho)

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vauxhall-...IAAOSwF1hcxdE~

    or the Senator

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rare-1992...0AAOSwj4hcwZ7u

    BMW E34 and E30 (like the E39's too - Dad had a 530d and 525i "individual")

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BMW-525i-...IAAOSw619crafn


    I watch HubNut on youtube for reviews of "rubbish" old cars. Oddly these cars are more interesting than the sea of PCP/leased modern cars around today.

    Do like an E30 318IS with the check interior ! Had a NOVA SR 1.3 in the late 80s that was a fun car and I think they sell for a pretty penny now alongside the Renault GT 5 Turbo. Vauxhall made some pretty iconic cars back then. I'm amazed they are still manufacturing to be honest with the likes of Saab going bump.

    If you have the space in the drive / garage, the 5 series is by far the superior car.. and engines etc are all the same anyway so there's no real difference in parts and maintenance costs. Happy to impart any knowledge I've got about the 5's if it's a route you decide to go down! I can't claim to be an expert but I've learned a few bits and pieces over a couple of years of ownership.

    Plus one for all these! Hub nuts channel is great. Look at Furiousdriving as well, he does a lot of "crap" forgotten cars.

    Love the senator, the grill looks amazing. It all went wrong after the 90's cavalier for me. My dad had three, horrible

    Jim, cheers for the offer, all depends if I can part with the diesel lupo, which is so cheap to run.
