Hi Brian. A picture of it would be helpful in determining which model it is as bodywork/ styling is the first clue. If it's fully loaded as you say then possibly a higher XL spec car but without more info/picture it's going to be hard. Welcome btw.

Anyway hello to everyone, if you missed my first post.

Hi Brian. Did you buy the car in Shrewsbury? I recognise the pics I think.

If so, that's the first Elgrand I'd driven. I was already doing research into buying one & I noticed there was one for sale locally. The wife & kids went to look at it & liked the look of it so much they booked a test drive for the next day. It was a lovely drive & convinced us it was the Elgrand that we should go for after a bit more research & a chat with the bank manager.

If not, I've had too many cheap Tesco lagers & I apologise. :)

yep , i think its the very same. id been looking for the right one for 12mths. wife wanted it straight off. got a good deal on my trade in too which helped. 6 seater which as there is only the two of us and two dogs gives us a bit more space. although it looked clean ,it took me 2 weeks solid to deep clean. came up like new. only a couple of issues. needed new pads all round and a blocked sunroof drain tube.
we like shropshire especially bishops castle......6 pubs and two of them breweries. ...nice. ideal for an ellgrand get together ??

That's great, glad you got a good deal & you've only had to sort a couple of problems - I hate having to change cars, it's always a worry what you're going to find & what's been hidden.

Need to get the cats done on ours before the warranty's up & underseal before the crap weather.

Blackpool would be ideal too. Plenty of pubs, a beach & a fun park etc. Can't compete with that. :)
