Parts prices are exhorbitant, my dealer in Cumbria seems quite reasonable (Harper & Hebson), giving compensation for parts not delivered on time through carrier's incompetence.

Auto box in the car seems to be a liability (looks like the differential is on the way out), but thecar is nice, comfortable and meets most of my criteria for transport when not stood in my drive awaiting repair.

Auto box seems to be the biggest problem.
