  1. Could be a DPF regeneration, take it for a good thrash on the motorway and check the oil level before you do.
  2. Depends where you take it, ring round for some quotes.
  3. If your a cash buyer the best time to buy is November/December or through a car broker. Anything else is what the manufacturer/dealer has to offer.
  4. Could be damp around the coil pack/plugs spray some WD40 on them and see if that cures it.
  5. Check the rubber pipe from the turbo to the waste-gate, it can split, if you take the air inlet pipe off can you see the turbo spinning?
  6. Given the low mileage it doesn't get driven far so the white smoke in the exhaust is condensation, take it for a good thrash up the motorway that will clear it and empty the exhaust of water. You will see the water move in the coolant tank, so long as you don't have to top it up every week the car sounds fine. Not sure what the juddering is, is the car petrol or diesel?
  7. Battery has done well if its original and I would change it. If the plugs are original I would sell the car as it's been neglected.
  8. Something is definitely bent! Either the lower wishbone or if your really lucky the front sub-frame as well.
  9. Australian model?
  10. On the one day a year it's hot in England I'd walk!
  11. Sounds like the valve stem seals are leaking. Given the mileage and age of the car how much money do you want to spend?
  12. Check the injectors are not leaking or starting to leak, common problem.
