    2008 with 33k on it.

    Serious difference from my 7th.

    The cars looking good Topper Harley.

    That's got even less miles on it than my 2008 diesel! There goes my title of having the lowest mileage diesel on the forum. You wouldn't mind putting another 10k miles on yours in the very near future would you. lol

    Cheers.

    Wanted a low mileage one and spotted this one.
    Would of loved a GT model but the import/registration tax is ridiculous .
    Loving it so far.

    Good looking ES bud, looks like a London Ex fleet car, good to see you using the right oil and genuine parts. I know exactly how you feel the 8th Generation is a far superior car to the 7th Generation in nearly all departments, despite that the sales have been disappointing and people are still latching on to the outdated outclassed 7th Generation.

    Car looks great bud, well done.

    Some of us can't afford to change yet. :Sobbing:

    But this one will, as soon as the bank account is healthier :Happy:

    Same here Nels. The fact that I'd want a white Type-S model is probably not making this easier to achieve :Smile:

    There's an 8th Generation I've been watching. Can't afford to buy it, but keep looking at it online.
    I know I won't be happy when it's sold, just hope she goes to a good home.

    Well although I like the 8th Generation tourer more than the 7th Generation Hearse I'd still keep my 7th Generation saloon over the 8th Generation any day...

    Why


    Well the 7th Generation Type-S is a genuine petrol engine whereas the 8th Generation is a smokey joe weasel...


    And they don't do the 8th Generation in Arctic Blue Pearl.....
