    let me know if any good deals come in, I could do with a runaround upto about £8000, putting far too much mileage on the Jag.

    Will do, I'm unsure how it all works at the moment, but my mate (who got me the job) gave me the impression that some back-hand deals do happen. He said they time it right, so they get back to the depot just after it closes, so that they're forced to keep the car overnight :D
    What you looking for, a diesel estate or something similar?

    See if you can get a nice diesel for that, engines are and injectors are much quieter the past 10 years or so, not really noticeable from within the car cept when idling.

    Consumption is amazing as well see my friends do epic journeys for 10ers worth :laugh:

    Ive always worn Casio watches since i was old enough to have one on my wrist. no idea why. I do have my eye on a very nice £329+ Breitling but IMO thats way over the top for something that just tells the time -- i didnt even need to pay £120 for the watch I got now, I coulda just went around the street randomly asking people what time it is.
