Default Diesel Limo

Not many of these CDT LWB were made, usually converted the 2.5 V6 engine.

However seems a bit expensive, I had a ex mayor LWB a few years ago and it was poorly maintained, look like this has suffered the same fate

Looks very nice.

The feature I like the most...greater rear leg room!

Stop the little munchkins kicking the back of my seat!

I agree, it seems a bit expensive, but what makes you say it has been badly maintained?

To me it just looks a bit tatty on the inside.

And not what i'd expect from a five grand car.
