Needs to comfortably carry 4 adults, be in decent mechanical order, have MOT and a towbar would be a bonus.

Dont mind if its petrol or diesel, towbar would be a bonus. Ideally a comfy cruiser.

Budget in and around £1500.

One I have been looking after the last few years, timing belt at 180k, FSH, needs MOT in July but should pass without too much issue. Has towbar and 7 seat kit.

Id maybe sell my mk5 Golf Estate 1.9TDI.
I was going to use it as my daily driver but could be tempted to sell it and just keep my polo.

Half looking out for something to have sitting about to do the odd bit of towing, maybe 1.5-2 tonne plus the trailer. Do these d5s tow well? Does it make much difference manual/auto? Cheers 👍

1800kg apparently so would need to be a very light braked trailer. There was an image of one on here towing a fairly heavy car on a transporter. It may have felt fine but it was almost certainly illegal unfortunately. For those sorts of weights plus a trailer you're really into 4x4 territory.

Manual is easier on fuel, other than that both will happily do the job. Know a guy regularly uses his for stock cars (towing them - not competing lol)

I'm looking about £900 for this.

2000 e280 v6 petrol auto. Mot'd til September, Black heated leather, CD changer etc. Original Amg 18s, 132k miles, full history up to 112k ish. Original owner up until the start of the year, who then sold it to the fella I bought it from in mid March. I've put around 2k miles on it and it hasn't missed a beat on my fast A road commute. 204 bhp so goes rightly. Really comfortable bus for running around in. No tow bar though. Can drop the price considerably without the wheels if interested.

That could be the ticket. Anymore pictures of it to show the other half as she will be using it as much as me?
