Well spotted! I'm in Coalville quite often but haven't come across that one before. Definitely a 7x4, the wheels suggest 764, but I could be wrong looking at the front seat head restraints - maybe someone has fitted different wheels?

Regards, John.

NB Just a thought - you do have the owner's permission to post the photo? It's not normally 'done' to positively identify cars or precise locations in this section. J.

I just checked the plate and it is a 740, I agree you should at least blank the numberplate as if I found my car in this section with the plate on it I would asking for the photo to be removed.

Did not think about the plate, just assumed people do not drive around with them covered up so whats the harm.

Shall i cover all the other cars plates up? Ok covered the plate up to keep the paranoid happy.

Find it really annoying when folks cover the plates on cars for sale, pointless.

Yeah, those look like ones from a Vauxhall Carlton.

Haha, I sort of agree that the plate/exact location isn't wanted to be disclosed by everybody. But then equally I don't see the harm either, seeing as it's "out there" anyway & more unscrupulous types are likely to see it in person than are likely to swing by here.

On another note, Hi Waynedance. I seem to recall you mentioning going to Volvo on the FCF lol. (I'm ekjdm14 on there), I didn't know it was an S80 though haha, we've not long got a P2 and loving it. Utterly different driving experience to Citroens.

It's not a bad colour really, I didn't like it much to start with but it's grown on me... I think that kept the price to where we could afford it too, I can imagine a dark metallic would have made it fly out the door at hundreds more than we paid.

Love all the gadgets & toys on it, despite having been opposed to stuff like automatic wipers previously. Only thing I would like to change is an upgrade to a built-in fridge to keep our drinks cool when we go for a walk lol.

How are you liking yours? is it the 185bhp lump?

Yes 185 lump and quick enough for me, changed to the Volvo as wanted auto and the D5 seems quite reliable (work at a garage). Could have got a newer Focus or similar but would prefer to get an older more exec car.
