IE6 I'm afraid.

Can someone else try this to verify that's not just viewable because it's in my cache please?

Bah, only seems to work when you paste it into the address bar from within the autotrader website. :(

Open the link to the car you want to link to. From the popup window right click, best place is the description part of the car. Select Properties.

From the dialog box that appears, copy all of the text in the Address URL bit, you'll have to drag the selection down a little as there's a lot of text there.

I can't believe it was that simple!

I can't tell you how many months I've just put up with link the picture and copying the text! :o

Many thanks

Jeez thats stunning - absolutely lovely car.

Only thing that would be off is the low mileage meaning its £2k more than it would be with twice that on it :p

Topaz Blue and Cream leather is just the right colour combination as well.
