Take a chill pill chum and try and retain some sense of reason and perspective

Still looking haha, do the dashboards crack on these cars or are they made of better stuff compared to some of the cars from the same era?

Dashboards' are good ..........in my experience of them.

Headcloths can sag though.

If itís been replaced and Febi made it thatís where it came from.

Itís absolutely spot on quality wise.

Other suppliers are available etc etc but Iím happy they know what they are doing
Apparently if it fits, then you say it's a good quality

I recently asked about febi to my mate, who is mechanic, and also more into car stuff than me, he replied that their parts are in the medium quality range - no wonder why I've never noticed someone recommending febi parts to someone before you - I would also try to recommend the best, not "the middle"

Of course, when nothing else is available, then febi should be enough, at least for a time - so now, when I prepare another gearbox for my golf, it will receive one driveshaft flange and two flange caps, made by febi - because only way to get those damn caps without ordering was buying febi driveshaft seal replacement kits - seal itself could be found from more decent manufacturer.

That looks very nice, good spot John !

MOT history shows a lot of advisories over the last few years and I'd be trying to get the price reduced based on those as it'd be good to get them sorted sooner rather than later.

Think it's a bit pricey , but until you see it and drive it ......well the proof of the pudding is in the eating ...so they say.

Well worth a look ! Bon Chance.

That does look smart

I normally like a contrasting interior to the exterior colour but that looks very clean.

A nice bit of kit

Those advisories aren't the worst.
As a daily, this I would drive. Would be better for a bit less cash but there's nothing I don't like..........for a daily!
