    Not sure, does anyone actually care? Estate Pack?

    My Father bought the car in April 2007 and I inherited it in December that year when I was 15 after he passed away .
    I didn't start driving it until I was 18 after I had one years no claims in November 2010. Went off the road in March 2011 for a few months once I found a nice 480 on ebay. That went on strike in June 2011 so started driving the V70 again. Put on SORN again on 18/06/12 and as of January 2014 the plan is to get it back on the road for March time ! Bought a second Alfa when I sold my GTV.
    Car was back on the road by default late March 2014 due to the death of my Alfa 166
    22/11/14 - Finally, the car is wearing some quality coilovers.
