MV03 NXR has moved a couple of hundred miles up North...  :)





229,231 miles and counting, with a few creaks, moans and groans of old age - it'll be my daily for at least a little while. The current lease car's going back next month, and as my monthly mileage is averaging two thirds of bugger all these days, it's not worth throwing big money at anything new for the moment. Woke up the other weekend, saw it on offer, thought "why not?" and picked it up the following weekend  :y


The furthest back on the forum that I've found any pictures of the car are from 2012, but I believe it's been around these parts since 2009.


I'm building up a list of bits and bobs to sort out over time, anything from missing bits of trim to dealing with those rear arches, but fundamentally it's a sound 2003 2.5 Elite. Rather annoyingly, I scrapped the remains of my old '98 Elite 3.0 back in January and never really thought I'd have another, so there's a couple of bits I'm now kicking myself for not having kept hold of. But hey, hindsight's easy...  ::)




If someone could add a link to here from the For Sale thread it'd be appreciated, just to keep the history going.

Haha, never noticed that  ;D  My mind's stuck in an age of engines with actual throttle cables instead of this new fangled drive-by-wire malarkey...

It's great to see she didn't end at scrapers. Good luck with sorting that rust  :y

I believe that IanU and Pauls both spent a fair bit of time and money on keeping that car 'right' :y

The mileage is nothing if you keep on top of it ;)
