Bear with it. I'm new round here. Fact 1: I'm currently driving an Audi TT 2.5 TDi, a company car that I've decided not to replace in March when its lease is up, as I do very few business miles nowadays and it doesn't make sense... better off taking the allowance. Fact 2: I still need a car. Fact 3: I'm 48. I feel I need some quality execmobile that suits my advancing years. Something large and German, probably. Fact 4: My Dad died just before Christmas. I'm administering his estate. Amongst the many ballache issues associated with Fact 4 is 'What do I do with his car?' Fact 5: He loved his car. Banged on about it all the time. Didn't pay much attention, always been more into bikes for thrills and thought he was just trying to justify not having bought something large and German, the tightarse. Never even driven it. Fact 6: It took a while, but suddenly thought 'I could drive his car for a bit, stop it constantly having flat batteries from sitting idle, would make it much easier to find the car I want if I don't have to buy one to a deadline'. Because he hardly drove it at all in the last couple of years, too ill. Just ran it with the door locked every now and then to keep the battery charged. Which is how come I have taken possession this week of an immmaculate, black '08 plate Honda Legend, stinks of fags - which is what ultimately killed him - and has... wait for it... 14,000 miles on the clock. I have probably put no more than 30 miles it. But, bloody hell, what a car! Floor it, it takes off. Goes round roundabouts quicker than the TT and probably weighs twice as much... I can't believe how much I've fallen in love with a car in three days! And jeez, what a load of technology... I still haven't worked out which of the clever lanekeeping stuff, adaptive cruise control stuff, stuff stuff it might have, as the manual is War and Peace squared, but it's clear that the standard kit is pretty extraordinary. Absence of anything beyond CD for music is a bit of a bind, but I can forgive it that for having the best stereo I've ever heard in a car. So... sanity check someone: What issues am I likely to have on a Legend with such minimal usage to date? It's way overdue a service (booked in in for Honda Dealer Service in a couple of weeks) - should I get a Honda Warranty on it? It's had regular flat battery issues (all the tech I guess, coupled with no usage). What should I look out for (aside from surprised 5-series drivers in the RV Mirror). I have zero mechanical nous and tons of technical nous (as in IT)... And what have I probably overlooked that might make me love it even more? Parkers says 8.2 to 9.7k for a model with this mileage... (I need to value for probate, and to split fairly with my sister) but Honda service chap was surprised at this much, reckons they couldn't get much more than £8.5 off their forecourt. What do you chaps reckon?
