Have a look here mate:;id=41&c=5

That should help you out.

Your prob looking at a higher mileage one, but thats not a problem with the IS. The engines are excellent. Just make sure the Cambelt has been changed (60K miles, or 6yrs)


Also this should help you with different specs:;id=14&c=5

Welcome to the club matey :D

Ebay might be your best bet for the money you have to spend matey, quite a few on there at the moment :)

One thing you will find, with having children the boot space isnt great as the rear seats dont fold down, and trying to fit push chairs etc in the boot can be a work of art so advise having a look to see if it will suit your needs?

Good luck with your search :)
