COB6034 for sale

Post by amulheirn » Wed Apr 20, 2016 9:50 am

Looks like Rod Leach is selling his 289... No price given, but at the bottom of the advert it says 'p/x considered', so I will be trading in my girlfriend's '04 plate Focus Tdci.

That should knock about 0.6% of your remaining balance! :roll:

Wonder if he'd knock some pennies off to let me change the whitewalls?

It's all very personal, but speaking entirely and only for myself there's a lot I'd want to change. I really dislike the interior of that car, it's just so 'Diana Dors' with the contrasting piping all over the place (there would originally have been very little, and not contrasting). Not keen on the pale blue and no comment on the whitewalls. I guess these points all count as part of the car's history, though.

It also benefits from some very modern plastic heater vents...

Agreed. They were never "fancy" cars

I may have slightly overestimated that...your trade-in could be closer to 0.03%. Assuming it`s an absolute low-mileage minter! :oops:

No - it's more of a minger to be honest...
