Theres plenty about, you just need to find the right one at the right price.

Make sure its had a cambelt change and thats its been serviced regular. The original ball burnish BBS RC wheels corrode so make sure you either get one where the wheels are in good condition or that they have already been refurbished as it could cost you a few hundred pound to get them done.

The diesel anni is a fantastic car in my experience, fast, economical, sporty (but not too much), and very refined for that age/class of car.

As above just wait for the right one - patience is the key [Y]

Hmm I know I can retro fit cruse control into my car because it has the newer 'drive by wire' throttle, I would assume the Anni already has this already fitted or it can be retrofitted for about £150 or less BUT this needs to be confirmed by another member as i'm not sure.

EDIT: tsl_wales beat me to it

I know the feeling mate (i went to get my APR map from them some time ago, lol what a trek) - you can get the cruse control stalk and wiring loom off ebay and then fit it your self if you wanted - I cba at the moment tho lol.
