    They are lovely cars, check the prices of brakes etc they can be quite expensive on parts.

    Generally as long as they are serviced properly they should give very little trouble. Does the belt need changing and is the clutch ok, this depends a lot on your cars mileage.

    Cheers for the reply!

    I've priced up most of the service parts and they are fairly reasonable. Only thing I am wondering is; if I buy a version with the Xenon 'angel eye' headlights do I have to replace the whole lamp if it goes off?? that looks expensive!
