Default Ten years of ownership.

Ten years ago today I made the 340 miles round trip to Sittingbourne in Kent to collect my 1.8 Connoisseur SE T, having been down four days earlier to view and test drive it.It was four years old,had one previous owner and had covered 47K.Ten years on,it's now done 65K (I must get out more!).I have very much enjoyed tinkering and upgrading the car along the way and would like to thank all those on here for their help, support and assistance over the years.I would also like to send a special thank you to Nick at Austin Garages in Burton On Trent for his expertise and first class service on the car.


Upgrades include..
Factory Xenon's.
Powered rear blind.
Coolant level sensor.
Digital temp gauge/alarm.
Lowered 30mm on eibach pro springs.
Rear anti roll bar.
18" wheels.
DD unit with DAB radio.


Here are a few pic's of the day I collected it from the dealer forecourt,and then as it now looks today.

My 10 years was celebrated on 24th of last month - a popular time for purchase as the cars were about 4 years old, and had lost much of their depreciation!
