We both did not sleep late so we walked down to the local supermarket Waitrose and we were standing outside ready for them to open at 8am!
After breakfast we headed to Coventry in Martin's new to him BMW to look at and test drive a SEAT Ibaza 1.6TDI ST we had seen at the local dealer and had provisionally reserved.
The salesman we had contacted was not in due to his wife having a baby but another salesman Nick took us for a test drive. We were very impressed so struck a deal to buy the car. Although just over a year old the car only had 2083 miles on the clock. The car had been owned by SEAT UK and had been one of their management cars. The manager must have lived close to the office! The car was like new and was exactly what we were looking for. We needed to sort out insurance then the garage could sort out the vehicle registration. For our North America friends reading this journal the vehicle registration was only £30 about $45 and the expected combined mpg for the vehicle is 65.7mpg.
