When you describe the colour as gold do you mean smoke silver? In my opinion thats a good colour but there was another colour that looked more like gold and that's not so classy. Just my view but could affect the value. Can't remember the precise name of the colour.
I would agree mechanically very strong. Our estate has 140000 on the clock. It's hardly run in and can cover 1000 miles in a day with no problem.
If you plan to use it everyday just bear in mind they like to drink unleaded.
