Default Four V70R's in all so far and looking for another

I've had four of the classic V70R models. The first was a 1999 V reg AWD 7-seater in silver, sadly written off many years ago.

I replaced this with a 1999 7-seater in Black but this wasn't the AWD and I found that I needed it so sold the black one - with a brand new engine! This came about after a badger took out my oil line in the countryside at 1am and I wrecked the old engine trying to limp it to a less isolated area; fortunately the insurance company sorted it out.

I bought an unusual W reg Laser Blue AWD (manufactured in 1999 but belonged to someone in the military who registered it in 2000 when he came back to the UK). I transferred the extra seat from the black one, so 7 seats again and I absolutely loved this car ... until my husband managed to pour an entire latte coffee into the dashboard and things started to go wrong. (He put it on the dash and turned the ignition key to listen to the radio and the sat nav popped up!) So I sold it - and came clean about the coffee. I've seen it for sale since then with no mention of the latte fiasco.

On to my current model: 1999 V reg V70R AWD in Laser Blue, again with the transferred child seat in the back. This has been a lovely car but at 195,000 miles it's starting to show its age. I go through a lot of oil, the ignition barrel needs replacing and the air conditioning isn't working. AWD is still in good order and the car runs beautifully but I'd like to sort out the things that don't work properly.

I now live on the Wirral, near Liverpool, so if anyone knows a good engineer who would like to help me get this beauty back to its former glory, please get in touch. Failing that, I'm looking to replace it with a low mileage version of the same model. I've just seen one with around 75,000 miles on the clock on Gumtree but I missed it and feel genuinely depressed about it.

Hi, try Tim Williams in Leicestershire - it's a bit of a drive, but worth it! He knows the Rs inside out and has a very good reputation for working on the R cars!

Cheers

Thanks for that. I have made a momentous decision. I have found my third Laser Blue V70R AWD from 1999 and I'm in the process of buying it. It's been imported from Japan and has only 70,000 kms on the clock. It's in mint condition apart from two tiny stone chips which I have asked to have sorted out. They will also change the radio for a more modern one with bluetooth and an AUX socket. I'm paying a lot for this car, but it will see me out and I just don't want any other car. I absolutely love a car that looks this good, drives this well in all weathers and into which you can put a wardrobe if necessary!

I have a couple of questions for you all. Firstly, the garage selling it are reluctant to change the odometer to read in mph; they say that it smacks of tampering. They will, however, change the dial to show mph. I have to clarify this with them - I'm not going to have some after market abomination stuck on to it and I don't see how it can show miles per hour and clock up kilometres per hour. Your opinions please.

Secondly, what do you think of the wheels? I can't make up my mind if I like them. I'm a purist at heart and am thinking of refurbishing my Satellites instead.

Thirdly, I have to prepare my existing R (the Hairy Little Devil - from V301 HLD) for resale. The first thing I need is an ignition barrel and I'm having some trouble sourcing one. If anyone knows where I can get a good used one, I'd be grateful for suggestions.
