Cool, shake on it! ;)

I'm glad to hear it hasn't been any problem for you. The warranty sounds like a good idea but I guess if it wasn't required then maybe not worth it, though my inherent caution will make me but one. The ones I've seen on PH are mostly grey black interiors which are gloomy

90% of them are grey/black interior which I hate, particularly with the wood. I suspect their age is just at a point where light coloured interiors suddenly became untrendy for a couple of years.
Black/Beige interior and lowish mileage were my two must-haves which narrowed it down to only one car when I was looking.

I *think* they have isofix but not sure.

Not that it's a deal breaker but is yours a 4motion version?

Ok wasn't my imagination either. However that'll be too old a model for me I suspect.
