    The trouble with dual mass flywheels is you don't know what the previous owner did to it, if they were a clutch slipper then you have bought a pup, and one that hasn't had its kennel cough jab at that.

    My old Focus might be (is) a shitter, but I can fix anything that fails myself for peanuts. Which makes it - quite possibly - immortal

    2.5k mustrum? And Nobby is right, 8 years ownership and a complete renewal of all wear and tear parts inc pads and discs last Jan or 2000 miles ago. In the words of the mechanic, its good for 100, 000 and has had the gearbox flush.

    It could be yours, leather, alloys, climate, Bluetooth phone kit, CDs in the boot, cruise control...., 231bhp, 31mpg. Straight six with k&n filter, auto lights/wipers.....

    *warning is iz on a sales training course innit....
