It wasn't cutting out, just going into a sort of limp mode. With hindsight, I'm certain that one of the CD175's pistons was sticking. The purchaser had read the blog, so it was a warts and all sale. A man of his calibre shouldn't find sorting it a problem

It's a cheaper car with lower performance. Insurance brokers are latter day robber barons/highwaymen.
