2.5 V6 pre-facelift manual estate

OK, I haven't actually picked this up yet (collection day is next Sunday), but I've agreed to buy this and paid a deposit. I'm very excited!

Pics to come shortly

The MOT history would suggest so! I haven't actually seen it yet but as good V6 manuals are getting hard to find, I wanted to put a deposit down to secure it. I've been after one for ages and if this is anything like as good as it seems, I'll be absolutely delighted. I spoke to the seller on the phone and he seems a nice guy and everything seems to check out.

The last MOT was in January and the advisories were minor corrosion to brake lines. That was the first advisory it has EVER had!

Don't listen to the taunts about "Gay Gold" that you might get from the under-educated style police on here; I like the colour - my previous PFL Omega was that colour, officially Champagne Gold.  8) :y :)

I don't think that is gay (Champagne) gold, and its certainly not the even gayer Oyster, as that was FL only.

If its the colour I'm thinking it is (hard to tell from those pics), its like a green/silver hue.

IIRC, it fortunately doesn't have the brown dash that the gay Gold's have...  ...including the brown steering wheel that just makes me think I'm holding a turd.
