That explains why they feel like new buses then.

Do the stagecoach Dennis Darts suffer from corrosion as much as the Arriva ones? If so, why are they still in service?

Think the stagecoach ones are in far better condition now than the arriva ones were ever. The stagecoach ones have probably not had to work quite as hard either, those arriva ones had a hard life.

You're telling me they had a hard life? they went past my house every 20 mins, every day for 16 years! Poor old things, engines, diffs, gearboxes and body work were all shot when they were withdrawn. Only Y549UJC left now. The Stagecoach ones are 5 or so years newer which helps but I don't know if they are any more corrosion resistant than the arriva ones or whether they just have an easier life.

Also the stagecoach fleet are the transbus variants aren't they?

Also slightly different interior too, different style seats plus they've got led rear lights etc.

And bigger/better engines, gearboxes and diffs.
