Default V40 wanted

I owned an S40 2.0T some years ago and loved it. I am now in the market for an estate so my thoughts are turning to a V40.

*Must be in drive-away condition, the longer the MoT the better
*Some spec would be nice. My S40 had cruise and climate control and it would be nice to have those again but not essential
*Automatic preferred, manuals considered if they're otherwise really good
*Petrol preferred
*Cheap. I know this is the owners club so we value them high, but we must be realistic - these are just old cars at the moment, not modern and not classics.

My dream would be a 2.0T automatic with all the toys, no major issues and a lengthy MoT for a three-figure sum but I realise I'm not going to get all of those things in one car.

As an aside, does anyone know what happened to X409 OOB? The reg has disappeared off all the DVLA pages so I assume it's alive and on private plates.

I'm after the same car, hope one comes up in Sheffield as I will beat you to it LOL
Joking apart I've been after one for a couple of years having owned my S40 auto for eight years I have fallen in love with them but really could do with an estate I've come across a few manuals but good auto's are hard to find and for me they are usually at the other end of the country!
Any good luck in your search.

That's fine, we're a long way apart so I doubt we'd be fighting over the same car

One did come up on AutoTrader in Hounslow, I arranged to see it but it sold before I could get there
