fingers crossed i'm going to pick it up for no more than 3,500, it's a 2000, full History and one previous owner. not long had over 2,000 spent on discs and pads!!

have seen them go for just under 3,000 but they tend to have had quite a few owners.

think it had every option available when it was new, 18" wheels, brembo brakes, sunroof etc...

Good that its had the brakes done, commonest MOT failure for these except for tyres. Other common fails are lights and suspension. Check its level and give each corner a damper check.

great, I tried to clean the maf on my Volvo s60 but with no results.
A new one costs 259 for a Bosch unit or 45 for a cheaper make? Might be worth you buying a new one buddy, you certainly have picked a nice car happy

I sprayed my MAF with carb cleaner, let it soak, then started the car up and did the same again, sorted the problem out for me.
