Sounds a'ight mate! I searched for mine for about 3 months before i found one which didnt have any oil leaks, had lowish kays and was a manual. The only thing i noticed is that all the autos i looked at did have leaks from the gearbox. I'm sure you know what to look for but just warnin ya. Anyway happy hunting, let us know how ya go! :D

12k-13k if its a EF then thats crap unless its got good kms and in good nick, most of the ELs ive seen are around the 10k-12k mark
