First update is a boring one I'm afraid
First thing to do with any car is to do a service IMO. I dont think the oil filter has been changed in a while though 😬🙄 (changed at 82,900)
I noticed the windscreen wasn't clearing too well and it didn't smell too great either. I drained the screenwash, flushed through with water and refilled with pre-mixed fluid. Also fitted new Bosch wipers
One of the things mentioned in the for sale advert was the dashboard display wasn't working. It seems this is a common fault, luckily the seller supplied a replacement which was untested. Swapped them over and at first it didn't work. Got the soldering iron out to have a look at the original, that didn't sort it so re-tried the spare and it works.
I gave the engine bay a quick clean as I had some spare time. I could do with removing a few things for better access but its a start 🙂
Here are some comparison photos
