Takes a certain type of person to keep a vert longer than 2 summers. First summer you realise it rains a hell of a lot in this country but you put it down to having a freak, bad summer. Come the next summer you realise the weather really is that crap and decide to sell the vert. Hence, 18 month ownership.
Buy it to scratch the itch but give the dealer £5k and not a penny more. The twin grill models are not that easy to shift.
