Hi All 1st post just got my x.reg 100000 miles silver unmarked black leather xpack, part service history, mot.
Just got home 90mile trip never missed a beat. But it takes a long time for the revs to drop any ideas?

Only got it because it was very cheap £650 with half tank of fuel lol
other then the above it's a nice stright looking car. Im just using it for fun.:)

ps i also have a nice Audi a4 turbo low miles and wish to keep it that way.

Im in witham essex so if you see me give me a wave(y)

Welcome aboard Karl, sounds like you've picked up a cheap'un matey. As TheBoyRoss has stated above - those few bits are just superficial. I've just bought from AZCar Parts a brand new set of front BREMBO discs and a set of Mintex brake Pads all for £87 inc shipping and will be here either tomorrow or Saturday. Have a look at my thread, as got the web address and contact telephone number for them:

Hope you get plenty of smiles per mile from your Coug. Get some pic's up soon. Cheers, Tim
