Re: O/S Headlight not working

I even wrestled the damn headlight out and tried another but it had no bulbs so put a bulb in the wrong holder again!!!!
Well at least i've greased the headlight bolts as they were a pig to get out as they were rusty so it'll just slip out next time :roll:

Re: Another 12 months MOT

Interesting,i assume the "family" refers to the 7 seater and not the estate.

Re: So what shall I replace it with

I bought a Mondeo Estate and have been very pleased with it so far,it's the Titanium Sports so the ride is a bit on the firm side but in standard trim the ride is fine and the 2.0ltr Diesel is basically a Peugeot engine.
