After failing to buy one at Brightwells last week I was sent the unsold list from this week's auction. I went up there, haggled badly and spent loads more then my budget on this one...

An '04 110 with 50k and a near mint interior.

This is the good side, it needs a new NS wing outer, new NS rear passenger door and some hammering/filler in the rear wing. The rear light panel also needs replaced but this was all reflected in the price and I think I did OK. :)

As an aside, and an addendum to my "What is it worth post", I have found the ex-police one I bid on last week. I stopped at my 10k budget and the car went for £10,100 IIRC. I was pretty peeved. :( Anyway, I am almost certain that this is the same car. Perhaps it was a bargain at 10k after all?

Ewww its one of them old ones with legroom fitted :ph34r:

Guessing that it was under your budget, that must be a pretty good price for a 3 year old vehicle in the UK even with a little work required?

Leg room? Not compared to the 90! I need to find where the leg room all went to on the later models.

Budget? HA! Spent the whole 110 budget, all the money I had saved towards buying a motorbike in the autumn as well as all of our holiday money. ;) Look out for some stuff going on Ebay in the near future. :)

I meant legroom compared to the new 07MY with a three foot thick dash :)

Mine's comfortable enough compared to the 90 (which was a 2004 so had the newer seats) but I am sure there is less room than there is in an old 110SW though I haven't done a kneecaps to dashboard measurement or anything. They have definitely changed something but I've never really tried to figure out what.

looks like a bloody good buy, just transfer over the gbmud characteristics from the 90 and she will be a good'un

That's why he bought the one with a few dents in the wing and door, so he wouldn't have too! ;);)

I would say you that you got it at a really good price. Well done

Stephen,, after 2 months with the 07, have not noticed any difference to the TD5, re legroom, certainly not for me anywhy!!

Chris,, as Mo would put it,, welcome to the "Barge Club" :D
