After researching every potential rattle from the vario roof components, but still having this odd metalish buzzing sound, I pulled up the rug in the trunk and removed all of the spare tire hardware. I found 2 quarters loosely sitting right on the metal of the wheel well where the spare tire goes. I also found a credit card receipt from the PO - which I quickly shredded. But hey, finally got that damn buzzing licked!

You never know what you'll find in a previously owned vehicle.

A story of finding things in cars.

A few years ago i went to buy a car trade, They would only do me a deal if i bought two others that they could not shift, So the deal was done and i got the 3 cars home, The one sold first day, the other a week later, But the last was a dog, And sat in the yard for over a year, Then one day someone asked about it, So i got it draged out and in the bay and set about getting it looking a little better, wile cleaning the seats, I found a diamond ring worth £5000 !! ( was selling the car for £900 )

So asked the dealer for the old owner, and they had gone to live in OZ! Found the son and he rang them, and they said they had never lost anything like that,
And b4 that it was a hire car. So handed it to the police, 6 months later told me to come and get it, As no one had claimed it..... As they say "finders keepers, losers weepers" :D

Bought the car for £475 .........made £5760 - £475
