Not been here in well over a year. Bought my black coupe off the company and sold it back in 2004, then took an Accord Type R from the pool list, had that a year, then Sept last year took an old shape Saab 9-3 Aero Convertible...still have that but as it's hit 4 years old i have to change again...
So.... currently doing my sums and the Saab although a lovely car is killing me on tax and personal contribution over my allowance.. there is a nice looking Red Linea Rossa Convertible on the list (1.8 petrol).
It's an 03 plate so really i would only have to keep it till Feb next year. My logic is that i want something nice for the summer - if the sun every comes out!
Can somebody confirm what the spec on a Linea Rossa should be as i haven't physically seen the car and if i ask them to deliver to my local workshop, i am obliged to take the car! I have a feeling it should have leather and 17 wheels. What i really need for motorway driving is cruise control...and i remember reading a couple of years back people were installing cruise control relatively easily in their Astra G's by taking bits desgined for the 2.2?
Can somebody tell me if this is actually possible, and how easy it would be for me to do this. Really if the car had cruise it would be a no brainer - even though it's Red - LOL..
Please help as i'm not sure if i should go with it or wait it out a bit longer...the list is like a lottery so next week may be crap!
Thanks in advance everyone.
