Okay righto lads
Thought id better do a collection thread for this as ive had it over a month now
This prime bit of shite caught my eye on the tat thread que me making a post enquiring about the finer points of vm motori's 2.5TD engine. Turns out shiter Laquer peel was planning on plumping for the same silver heap so chivalry ensued and i asked him are you having it etc etc.
Turns out no go ahead squire, So gixen sniping software set up max bid at Â£327.
Went out because the suspense was killing me returned late on that night to find myself the owner of a rover 825sdi for the princely sum of Â£260.66 , Jesus
So que a bit of messaging to and fro with the hard to get hold of seller (Might be better off enlisting derek acorah fuck me..)
Get hold of him about 3 days later train tickets sorted, Hop on my conveyance to sunny scunthorpe.
Was expecting the seller to be an old giffer (rover generalisations sorry) turns out to be a youngish lad.
V5 sorted he hands me the keys off i trundle down the A180 no pez shot as the seller had left half a tank in.
Kept it quiet from the old bid for 3 weeks so just had it doing the rounds on street parking, Fully admitted to now and parked under a tree at home.
Whats it like well great.. Ive always had e38's e39's in the past but i love british shite it just feels right i cant put my finger on it
I had some 15w/40 lying about from an old job so oil and filter plus an air filter got done for Â£7 .. well why not.
Cracked expansion tank though.. so Im going to try patch it till i can find a secondhand one arf!
I weighed in a bunch of metal in yesterday and already had some old beard trying to buy it!
Regards and pics below chaps.
