Lack of headlamp washer omfgshock puts off all autoshiters

 

 

Mine has headlamp washers, but they're seized solid. I took one apart to clean up and got it working again - all the time; it wouldn't stop! Unplugged it and now they're decorative.

I just give the motors a whack with a heavy screwdriver/light hammer/whatever's to hand when i notice they've stopped working - usually every 4 or 5 months.

Well, further harsh realities have dawned, forcing me into world wide internet advertising:

So they say - it's now done 20,000miles since I bought it in March 2012.  Not totally trouble-free but rather fun and effortlessly.

Seems I have overpaid for and then subsiquently overpriced this car.

 

Anyone that fancies it and is put off by the price, feel free to make a derisory offer. Shes got a full tank of juice and will drive anywhere.

 

Cheers all.

I have been trying to get my old man to buy this but he is a picky sod and doesn't like travelling to view cars and I still think he believes the internet does not exist, so any pictures of said car are not of said car and he would turn up and be sold a vhs player or summat.

 

Anyhow its lovely and a BARGAIN.

Doesn't seem overpriced to me. But I've got one, and two seems excessive.

It's too good for Autoshite. That's the problem. Have you tried on the W124 forum? A nice CE is a sought-after machine. Sadly here, we're more into snotters.

I couldn't find a need for both Ken I'm afraid. I'll certainly have the F though, if someone takes the Merc.

Take the bloody Merc someone, just take it FFS :)

 

Seriously, it looks the bollocks, it really does. God knows how it didn't sell here or on ebay.

 

As suggested, try the marque-orientated forums perhaps.

I've had 2, both estates, one 4-pot, the other a 6-pot.  I killed them both.

 

But I could see me wafting around New York (Shiremoor) in that.

I feel quite bad, because I like everything about this car and think it's a very fair price. But I've got seven cars at the moment and space for three, so I'm not going to buy it off you. Someone somewhere must want it though - keep trying?

It does, but it turns out I was right to be fearful.  Something about how many "empty 'G's" it gets and a daily drive to Hartlepool and back.

 

I'd say it was the thought of losing her first-car putting her off, but her first car had manual pop-ups, was wedge shaped and pinto engined, so it can't be that.

 

I want this, but practicalities are getting in the way.  I also think you've got the numbers right, Bruce.
