2004-06 manual 2.5xt

Hi,

Been lurking on the forum for a while now and looking for a 2004-on manual 2.5XT. It's a struggle to find what I'm after on autotrader and ebay so thought I may as well leave this request out there.

I'd consider anything as long as its in good nick. Oh, and pre March 2006 for the cheaper tax! And preferably within Leeds to Edinburgh sort of radius of Newcastle.

Thanks

No longer looking - picked up a Forester today from forum member jellyfishfields.

Thoroughly nice guy and a really well maintained car.

I'm sure I'm going to have a lot of fun with it.

Thanks guys

Gave her a wash after the long drive yesterday. Unfortunately it was starting to refreeze quickly so she's tidy, but not looking her best. Photos aren't great but they're all I could get between slipping and nearly falling on my arse.

Towbar removal is tomorrow's post-work project :)

Oh yes :)

I've got a decent chunk in my rainy day fund specifically for putting right any faults and making improvements where necessary (the usual suspects). Looking forward to getting my hands dirty, and probably very cold, in this weather.

I can't believe how easy most tasks look. Access underneath is so much easier than anything I've ever come across. Access to bolt heads etc isn't limited to some weird angle where you're guaranteed to open a finger or strip metal parts.

I like ownership so far!
Cheers

Was nice meeting you and your better half yesterday, I'm glad you made it home OK and that you're happy with the car.

I wish you all the best with it, as I said it's been a good car for me and I hope it continues to be so for you.

Thanks for making the sale straightforward, nice not to be messed around. I'm sure you must know how frustrating it can be sometimes when buying or selling so thank you for the hassle free sale.

All the best for the future and take care,
Stuart.
