    I have an X reg Renault Espace which my wife hates driving... I'd probably do her a favour of selling it (even though I wasn't planning to). No idea on price yet, but if you're interested then I can work it out. Pictures from when I bought it are here: awooga.nl/gal…ce/

    It would probably help if you post your location. I'm in Aylesbury, Bucks if you fancy a look.

    I realise that I've not even given you the basics :-D

    It's an X reg (first registered 11/10/2000), 2.0 16V RT-X with 7 seats: 5 removable and 2 'captains' (they can rotate) seats. Petrol engine and manual gearbox and 123,000 miles (of which I've done the last 15,000 since June 2006). MOT expires this month (which I have booked already to have done), and tax runs out next month (which I would renew for you). It also requires a service (which I will do beforehand too), so once all that's completed it is a 'just serviced, taxed and mot-ed' car

    Looking at Glass's, Parkers and AutoTrader it seems that most prices vary between £3,000 and £4,000 so keep that in mind. Mine will most certainly be at the lower end of the scale due to the mileage.

    No probs. I'm surprised you say that the Estima is bigger, but then again, I've not looked into that model, so I can't really say.

    The Estima Has 8 Seats And A Bigger Boot But Its Not As Versatile As The Espace As In The Back Seats Cant Be Removed They Just Fold Up To The Sides And The Estima Is A Pain As It Only Has 1 Sliding Door!i Find The Main Problem Is Because I Have 5 Children The 3 Youngest Are In Car Seats So I Have Them Behind Me,but The Eldest 2 Who Sit In The Very Back Have To Climb In Through The Boot As The Car Seats Are In The Way Its A Pain Really!would Like Something Where You Can Get Into The Very Back Without Having To Move Seat Forward If That Makes Sence,oh Well Back To Looking Cant Cope Much Longer Without A Car!!!
