    So as you know the c43 was hit a week or so ago and has been written off, and here is the replacement, not comparable, very different car, but I had a great drive home last night and looking forward to putting some miles on it.
    Incidentally, I had got an insurance quote for one of these before the accident and somehow, after the accident with the same company it was less after the accident!

    Very nice, practical, spacious and comfortable, what is not to like. I notice it has rear electric seats, what does the knob on the rear armrest do ?

    Lovely car, Rob - well done.

    On the mysteries of insurance, I'm sure you're clued up to check the next renewal price very carefully!

    Looks like the first owner ticked every option with that car Rob, very nice find and although not your 43 still going to be an enjoyable place to spend time in.
