Wait, wait, wait....he changed the engine after enough miles to circle the equator over twenty times, and that gets a "yeah but..."?Yeah but he did change the engine in the 500,000 mile bracket.
And change that one due to a fault.
Its an ex highway agency car, so it racked up 180,000 miles or so before being sold off.
It now tows a trailer and ships cars up/down the U.K.
Full main dealer history as well I believe as they gave him a car with a tow bar to use when his was in getting sorted.
