Re: Green Omygod barge

Yep but they was better then the horrid standard cdx seats, the mv6 estate seats in minty condition don't come up all that often and the price tag of 300 will be offset by the sale of the horrid cheap Vauxhall leather seats for 100
Sliding about in your seat round each corner become irritating after a while.

Re: Green Omygod barge

The seats came with a free car lol. The car was a knacker, seats thought filthy will clean up very well. Also removed a few extra bits and bobs.............. well I removed the complete interior, including carpet, headlining, side glass etc and ended up being 3.40 richer for it in loose change
38.9 mpg up there and 38.1 on return trip back fully loaded and stuffed full of fish and chips due to a detour to Whitby. Car now parked on drive while I recover

Re: Green Omygod barge

All the extra ballast has been unloaded on the drive, my extra ballast from over eating was unloaded too, but not on the drive! both the car and I are much lighter this morning. Taking advantage of the bright weather to make a start on refit before I'm forced to go for Sunday lunch and my first weekend off since the vboa show comes to an end.................Roll on some time off lol

Re: Green Omygod barge

One happy bunny, though not all plain sailing. The drivers side electric up and down had jammed on the highest setting, so had to remove seat again and fix. Just need a jolly got valet.
