Trusty old girl

Bought this little gem from family that had, owned from new. 36,000 miles, full Mot at the time and service history. Absolutely mint not a single speck of rust on body and interior like new. absolutely beautiful inside, blue interior still bright and shiny.

Electric windows, sunroof, quite impressive for year, velour interior seats.

Carpets seem a bit thin, but mats been done from new, and overall interior seems like it would not stand much hardship, but fine for me.

It is used a a shopping car, going to church once a week and occasional drive into the city.

Been through a seriously cold winter where i live never failed to start where more expensive cars in the family did, BMW X5.

Kept in garage, washed and polished once a week, gleaming paintwork like new. beads water beautifully.

Local dealer very helpful and love that the car is still going after all these years.

Only problems is it is worthless, i paid £450 and the seller snapped the offer up as there had been zero interest, advertised for over two weeks. So i hope to save it for a few more years yet, my grandparents use it more than me as they love the simplicity.

Parts from the megane mk1 which came after are more or less interchangeable, so many upgrades, safety and cosmetic can be carried out easily, switches, motors, pumps, brakes, exhausts etc.

Excellent first car and so much more comfy than a corsa or a fiesta, and with a touch of class.
