Some impressive buys here. I can't quite beat that but here it goes. I bought a clean 04 Punto 1.2 8 Valve with 6 days test for £200 last week. Took it for MOT the next day £35 and it passed without advisories. Bought about £35 of bits to get everything sorted and do a cam belt, aux belt + service. I already have oil so not adding the cost of 2.8 litres 10W-40. For about £270 a tidy car with a years ticket and a new cam belt seems reasonable. Shame I did the belt in too much of a hurry and got the cam a tooth out. Real rubbish timing marks on the FIRE engine. Need to go back and reset that now, thankfully it's a safe engine.

 

EDIT: Timing fixed, engine perfect since.

The best I can come up with in my county is this 210k mile Golf turbo diesel (£280). Used cars are relatively pricey here as public transport is so utterly pants.

£225 Escort Finesse with 12 months MOT. A bit over budget perhaps. Mileage is stated at 40k but could easily be 140k if it has a 5 digit odo.

23,207 miles on the clock when MoT’d in May 2006. May well be a proper giffer owned example.

Peugeot 206 1.4HDi 70 Verve 5 DOOR - 2006 06-REG - 10 MONTHS MOT

£60 ! 

I do wonder if the price is a typo, there's nothing in the description to say it's a non-runner.  Got to be worth more than £60 scrap, surely?

  • A lovely non-DPF diesel fug that follows the car everywhere
  • One of them new Insta filters? Fucking millenials.
