Vehicle History


The car has 2 original keys, has some service history and the second owner did have the car serviced every year but didn't keep any paper work. I have old tax discs and MOTs but back in 2009 they put 57,000 miles instead of 55,000 miles but was told it could not be changed after it was done.
