I went to visit my Nan the other day as she had a fall, my Aunt was also there for the same reason - while there, she mentioned she's picking up a new car on Friday and wants to get rid of her current car. I don't know if there is any appetite for it here, but here goes:
Volvo S40 1.8 pez, manual.
Maroon in colour, under all the dirt. It'll clean up nice (by nice, I mean if you like faded maroon paint and like to squint or close your eyes and imagine something else - or it might respond to a mopping if you're a masochist), but I don't remember the last time it had a bucket of water thrown over it. It does have the odd small dent/scratch and with 3 missing wheeltrims and a missing plastic trim piece below the bumper.
The interior is cloth and also a bit dirty.
Mechanically sound, gear lever feels a bit loose, probably worn linkages. Gears work fine though, goes into gear ok and stays there as expected.
It's been very reliable and has never broken down - my aunt has owned it for about 16/17 years - I think she bought it 'nearly new' from Volvo which would make her 2nd owner.
I think I remember that the tyres have good tread although I cant remember if they're budget brands (I think they are).
Has been regularly serviced, mileage is under 100,000.
MOT until mid-august 2017. (no advisories, never seems to have had any nor any failures!)
Tax to get you home.
Car is in Wembley, NW London -
Aunt would like £225 for it but I imagine she'll take an offer! ++ UPDATE: This is now a £4 £3 a pop ROFFLE! OMGBARGAINBROWNOVLOV!!! +++
++UPDATE: purplebargeken is winner!! ++
I know there is a lot more detail I should provide so if there is any interest I'll find out the rest (mileage, service history etc).
Here are some (delightful) pics I took - I was in a rush so apologies for no interior pics or for appropriate framing etc.
Apologies for the crappy advert! Do let me know if I've done anything incorrectly or if you want more info. Pisstaking entirely welcome!
