Ford washed my car without me asking and the wing mirror was damaged so a quick phone call and a new one was in my hands. Would of on my cost 65 which isn't that bad to be honest.

Then I started prepping the car for it's sale. Two new tyres installed was the aim of the day. Good old Costco.

Then started work in the Interior. Good vacuum and then leather cleaned and treated along with all the door cards.... smelling amazing.

So the car won't get used very much. Well enough to use most of the fuel. Hoping over the next week also the exterior will get done and then get some good picture and get it gone.

Your right it is a fairly good looking. Even for an estate. It's a lot of car for the money. But unfortunately due to wage cuts and everything else it has to go. If I wasn't living on my own and house bill were halved it wouldn't be so much of a problem. I've threatened to get rid of it and decided against it but this time is for sure.

When other things take priority you have to make the right decision buddy, I've been there on a few occasions and even regret selling my titanium x Mondeo but needs must sometimes

Enough of the Blue Oval, get yourself a Volvo or a Subaru estate next time.

Best of luck with the sale. It's certainly been interesting following this thread.

I got a feeling there will be more twists and turns with this thread.

Odds on it does not get sold and he keeps then gets to keep dragging the thread out.

Looking smiles better already, just a shame about build quality/reliability, maybe you just had a rogue one as Ford's nowadays are spot on.

I predict another kerbed wheel or dealer drama. Can't wait!
