To Buy or not To Buy...?

My mate who has a little less sense than the average bear is interested in purchasing a 2nd hand Spartan, mostly to urine his Mrs off...

So, here's the questions for youse guys out there;

What sort of mpg would he expect to get with the diesel engine fitted?

Are there any common faults which would require major outlay for spares?

What are the most common faults you should look out for when looking over a Spartan?

My knowledge of AFV's is limited to 439's, yeah, yeah I know ex-scaley :) All assistance gratefully received...

Tell him to take up golf. It's cheaper and you can still piss the missus off when you go of for a week with the lads :D

Anybody else think the MoD might be regretting it's decision to sell off so many 'surplus' CVR(T)?

Would it really have been so difficult to lop the back off all those Strikers, and turn them into a modern-day Bren carrier for the light forces?
