The trusty V50 is no more....

After a few good years my T5 Heico Moose is dead, it threw 2 big end bearings last weekend and totally lunched the entire engine :( That's 118,00 miles on the clock with full service history...Waaaay beyond economical repair, gutted :(

Hey Crossie,

I'm in Bern, have just bought a new XC60 AWD Ocean Race, collecting it tomorrow!!

The dealer has taken in the V50 but may well be interested in splitting the rims (Shod with brand new Vredstein summer tyres) as it also has a new set of winter wheels, they aren't gonna rapair it just sell for export I guess... the HEICO Rims would need a bit of work as they got pretty kerbed by the Mrs, hence the 'Alloygator' yellow edges...can give you their details if you like ....
