Well I've gone and done it :roll:

Pending the up and coming demise of my poor poor 3rd Gen :cry: I've been searching high and low for a replacement Lude. I didn't think there were going to be any other 3rd gens out there that were going to tick all the boxes mine did and none I've seen recently have come close. So it was going to be down to an import 4th Gen, or even possibly this time a 5th Gen! :? Although there was going to be some strict criteria if I went down that route... It'd have to be an import SiR. It'd have to have an LSD (As would a 4th Gen), and it'd have to be black!

Cue an advert on Gumtree who's title caught my eye and with a description that fulfilled all that criteria and much more! :scaredtoss:

I got talking with the guy and after a lot of answered questions, pictures and a video I decided to ask Ratty if he could go and check it out for me, being he was a mere 20 minutes away and an absolutely smashing bloke! 8)

Ratty checked it out last night. Thanks Scott. As I said, I owe you a big favour :hug: All sounds great, just slightly slow to fire up initially (which I'm sure will bean easy fix and the paintwork isn't the best. But there's no real rust on it, just a bit of surface rust on the rear arch return lip, which I'll remove straight away, and after what happened to my 3rd gen I'm kind of happy that it hasn't got immaculate paintwork anyway :lol:

So I've paid the guy as otherwise he had someone else promising to give him the asking price at 1pm today, so I've just got to get up there now... Anyone planning to travel from the South-West up to Leicester any time soon? :lol:

Anyway, here's what you've all been waiting for... A picture!!!...

You'll soon realise that you'd wished you bought one sooner once you've picked it up.
