Hi all. Mate of mine has finally seen sense and is going to stop attending main stealers. He is going to flog his 54 plate focus 1.8 TDCi while he can still pay off the finance with the residual value (getting divorced, needs to keep outgoings down atm). So, he liked my Accord and was looking at those and also likes the ST24. However, new missus strikes. She's bleating on about runing costs (18k miles a year) and has picked out a 2.0 SDI rover 220 on the 99' S Plate, £1695, 68k miles and no service history. I am right in thinking that this will, more than likely, be a hound, am I not? He has to drive 150 miles up here on a Saturday, to see his kids and then 150 miles back on the Sunday to get to work monday. Budget is around the £2k max mark and my suggestions have been very mondeo-centred, a la rep-mobile. So... Is the Rover 200 SDi a pile of the proverbial and what suggestions do others have?
