    Price seems to be about the going rate, could probably get one with a few less miles on it but if its mint and FSH that doesnt really matter.

    I have an 51 plate 2.2 SE1 with the alcantara. They are stunning. Check out the idle to see if it is pulsing or rough idle. Mine developed this problem shortly after purchase and it turned out to be the EGR valve. Apart from that no probs at all. Enjoy.

    Its an Auto too! Does that ring any bells or are they just as good as manual. My mate ain't really a 'driving' person if you know what i mean! So he doesn't mind the auto but will it be a problem later?
