Then I'd be left with an undrivable (well doh!) car with nowhere to put it and the tax running out next monday. Any one wan...

Yep. That'd be mine. The colour code translates as Lavender but actually looks like a metallic grey.
'91 Turbo, manual and currently for sale on ebay. No idea how to add the link, sorry.

Let me have your email Steve and I'll send you some photos.

Mothercare own brand. Have my two year old in it. Just make sure you tension them properly and they're fine. About the £65 mark I think from memory.
