I would say ABS ring is an easy fix tbh!

Why dont you get someone on here who lives down there to nip over and see it on you behalf at least then someone has seen it for you?

Think I will do that regardless of the car but as it will be about 4 weeks from now, don't want to hassle folk just now with checking cars! Just looking forbgiod examples, if a perfect one appears then I may be able to buy early.

Well that's what I thought but wasn't sure due to his poor English if he was suggesting two problems or the cause of one problem lol

I thought the speedo was a reading from all 4 wheels??

As said though ABS rings are easy enough to replace

What gives him the idea that honda designed the KV6 though, pretty sure they didn't do anything of the sort

Incidentally, I'd recommend the saloon version of the ZS for a keen driver. An appreciably stiffer body means crisper handling and a better ride. It also looks better and has much greater carrying capacity than the hatchback.
