Cowley car, 150k on the clock. MOT history looks pretty good save for a couple of silly things.

2019 model apparently.

Might have been nice if they'd included some info about the car

My brother told me about this one, i've been looking at it a bit. Is it an early longbridge or late cowley? If i'm not mistaken the black sills mean it's a cowley.

It seems to have a fairly mixed MOT history, it's had a lot of suspension problems.

2.0 V6, i'm not experienced with the V6 but i've heard it's a decent engine as far as reliability is concerned, and 150,000 miles isn't too bad as long as it's been serviced at the correct intervals.

In the past 13 years it's only clocked an additional 22K miles according to the DVLA, so it's barely been used for the past decade, but that means that in its first 5 years, it covered 124K miles, which is quite a lot. That's almost 25K miles per year. Wonder what it was used for?


The interior all seems fine for the age and mileage aside from the rear of the passenger seat peeling off. Bodywork on the car seems pretty decent.


The airbag light is on but that may be the connectors under the seats.

No engine light on the pictures but obviously the dealer may have cleared the codes with an OBD2. Also no pictures of the engine bay.

Obviously, it is pre project drive and isn't bad spec, with dual zone climate control and electric windows all round. It could easily be upgraded to higher spec. Obviously, white is quite a rare colour for the 75 too.

I'm in no position to buy at the moment, but if I was i'd at least consider it. The dealer is coincidentally right round the corner from where I bought my 75, literally a minute's walk away.

Yes, they probably re-opened the Cowley plant in the night when you were't looking
