Anybody want a 7-seater?
Well, the story goes like this: after scouring a 100-mile radius for over two months we finally found a car that seemed to tick all the boxes, so off we went to have a look at it.  And there it was, reasonably shiny and not looking too bad at all.  The viewing was going fine until we peered through the rear windows and discovered seats, about which the dealer's ad had said nothing.  In fact the dealer's photos didn't show the seats.  Ho hum.

So we huffed and we puffed through the rest of the viewing, mindful that it had taken weeks and weeks to get to this point and maybe, just maybe, the seats wouldn't be a problem and we could stow them away and, who knows, they might come in handy one day.  And rather than go home empty-handed I finally allowed myself, over a cheese sandwich, to be persuaded by my other half ('twas ever thus) and bought the thing.

So far it has failed two load-carrying tests on account of the shorter boot space that my trusty old 'Lingo First would have eaten for breakfast.  And of course even without the seats there's a step in the floor.  So I'm cheesed off with it, and at the right price would be prepared to let anybody who really wants a 7-seater take it away.  As a car it's absolutely fine - August 2011, just under 26000, MoT to August '16, VTR (no aircon, but hey), newly serviced by franchised dealer.  Only had it since the beginning of the month and haven't even got the V5 back yet.  Oh, and six months warranty too which looks to be transferable.

So, any takers out there?  I'll need £6500 so I can go looking for a replacement.  Form an orderly queue, now.........

Send me a PM, please, if you're seriously interested.
