    Great Car Liam, nice spec on the alhambra too. When I had company cars I had the VW Sharan and the Ford Galaxy (same chassis/engine as the alhambra). It is the only car I have had that has 7 proper adult seats, I thought both of them were great cars, proper family buses and really comfortable to drive. Quite nippy too IIRC.

    Its been used on the interior door handles Richard as a common problem is the rubber coating wears off. :)

    We bought it from a family friend who was selling it. It really was a spur of the moment decision. We couldn't pass it up as its a 1 owner from new, full service history car. He kept it garaged every night from new and had it maintained regardless of cost. :)

    Its the SE Tdi 115PD model, its got every extra with heated seats, climate control, cruise control and parking sensors front and rear! I can't believe the spec.. Its very comfy to drive.

    We never wanted a seven seater but couldn't pass up the deal, it was so cheap ;)

    Its not a replacement for the M but replacing the trusty Polo we have as we just needed something bigger! Never thought bigger would mean a 7 seater though! Lol

    Ahh, jealousy becomes you Mark ;-)

    Shelly - not a chance lol! Not for a few years at least anyway!!

    As Liam said we never wanted a 7 seater but it was too good a bargain to pass up. So.....anyone in the market for a tidy VW Polo?! :)

    Some time things happen for a reason , so your 7 seater was meant to be , it will be good for you in the winter Caroline with little Matty in the back , ;)
    Just think if we have heavy snow in next 3 weeks at least you will be able to get to pink party night :)
