Four thousand miles with a black box for two &a half grand?
Blimey, that's onerous. My stepdaughter had a black box & her monthly payments were all over the place with extra charges for driving at night & gawd knows what else. A real rip-off. She was well rid of that policy.

Anyway, nice car & welcome along.
Reducing the size of my Rover fleet by adding a 75 to it.

Car insurance prices are ridiculous for young people. As with most things it's the minority who are idiots on the road and crash all the time who ruin it for us sensible people. I go to college 1 day a week (apprentice HGV Mechanic) and a large number of those in my class have already written a car (or several) off.

It was probably a bit silly to spend so much on insurance but i would rather spend more and have a proper car instead of a corsa or similar rubbish.

Hi Alex.
Nice to see younger owners coming into the fold, give it a good service replacing the PCV filter which does get over looked.

Check those plenums link below.


get the manifold off and cleaned out, along with the EGR, and wipe the MAP clean all these jobs will see the car running good for you.

I thought it was only Minis in the classic car movement that attracted youngsters. You are very welcome to our world. When I passed my test (in an Austin A99 Westminster 3 litre), my mates thought I was mad to buy a 3.3 litre Vauxhall Cresta as my first car. It lasted me 7 years before it rusted away, but I loved it, and have never owned a small car - most have been 6 or 8 cylinders.

Welcome and ENJOY.
