GTE wanted

There is a white 5A auto coming up for sale in the NE - seller had intended putting it back on the road but bad health has stopped him - no idea what he has done or what needs doing but some years ago I did hear the engine running and saw it moving. He can be contacted at jpmcteer@hotmail.co.uk

Beast is the right word we run both our tI's at 160 bhp but 200 is easy to get. Better mpg than the CVH as well as long as you don't always have a heavy right foot.
