    It still goes really well - the 3L twin turbo diesel V6 has great torque from very low revs which makes it effortless quick.

    I can see it looks a bit like a Mondeo but IMO it looks better and the interior is in a different league as is the refinement.

    I might replace it soon. But if I don't it's still a car I will enjoy driving for a few more years, and is pretty practical too.

    Looking at the pic now I think I should spray those silver inserts in the front bumper black regardless of whether I sell or keep.

    Can you de-jaffa the headlamps?

    I've often thought about that. Not easily as it's the reflector not the bulb. Maybe some neat masking and Turbotint spray could work but it might well end up looking pretty gash. I'm amazed there aren't any nice aftermarket headlight clusters available.

    I should probably give it a go anyway, I think you can wipe it off if it looks shit.

    That is horrendous. If I was Shell, I'd find out who associated that with my brand and have them whipped naked through the streets of Aberdeen.

    Kathy Burke was on tv last night, making some crack about mid-life crises, women have menopause and men get a mistress and a Jag - Mrs ss looked at me and laughed 'halfway there'

    As per OP. Still exploring the envelope at the mo. It's not a rocket ship but I'm happy with the handling.
