Let's start with the disclaimer: it's been a couple of years since I've seen this car and everything here is secondhand info.

 

It's owned my an ex-neighbour of mine and I often used to think it looked more desirable than all the modern shite parked outside our flats. Naturally, when she mentioned on FB that she was considering selling I made interested noises. I was hoping to offer £300 with a view to running it for a few months before r0ffling it on here, but I now think £300 is unlikely to buy it. Therefore, I've offered to spread the word like the helpful ex-neighbour I am.

 

So what is it? Er, a Honda Concerto 1.6 auto, with around 57k on the clock. It's a family heirloom and is in 'perfect' condition, apparently. Take that with a pinch of salt, but I seem to remember it looking pretty solid. The MOT history is relatively clear, passing last year with these advisories:

 

  • Exhaust has a minor leak of exhaust gases centre and rear in very poor condition (7.1.2)
  • Nearside Front Tyre worn close to the legal limit (4.1.E.1)
  • Offside Front Tyre worn close to the legal limit nearly exposing cords on both edges (4.1.E.1) 

I'd hope that something's been done about them by now, but I'd have to check. The current test runs out on September 11th... I've suggesting bunging a fresh MOT on it, but they've bought a new car and just want this gone. I've probably talked anyone out of buying it now, but here are some pics:

20590823_10155606927798799_1415238201_o.jpg

 

When I originally enquired she was after £800 - £1,000 for it, but I've negotiated a shiters' special price of £500. That's the absolute minimum they'll take, apparently, but if you want to turn up, kick tyres and try to haggle some more you're welcome. It's located in Milton Keynes, and if anyone wants help collecting/temporary storage I could probably help out.

I have a coat made out of the same material as those seats. 

Did Honda use a normal gearbox by then or were they still using that slightly tapped semi automatic manual Hondamatic thing?

I'd love to turn this into a Rover 200, just as a completely pointless project and to waste time.

I have actually seen a Concerto in Belguim many years ago with a Rover rear lamp grafted on as the cheapskate owner probably couldn't (be arsed) to find a proper Honda replacement.

EDIT* Maybe not, here the Honda Concerto Diesel, which is basically a rebadged Rover (try telling that your pub bore know it alls)

Ooof. I'd be all over that roffle. I hope it comes into the Autoshite fold.

 

By the way, I don't think it's possible to talk someone out of buying a car on here, unless you say 'it's perfect and nothing needs doing whatsoever'.

It would be a laugh, the Concerto is worth more purely because of badge snobbery too.

I've had my fun with Rondas. Family have had two 90s Civics and a Prelude in the past 10 years, Old Man keeps telling me to get a Concerto. I've had my 200, and now it's time to move on and up I think.

You lot are making me want to buy it myself. It's in decent nick and they were great neighbours so it'd be nice to do them a favour. But I really don't need it.

 

Oh, and talking of turning a Honda into a Rover... if I was going to do it, I'd like to make a Ronda estate...

Against my better judgement, I've decided I want this. Like I've said before, it's a Concerto I've always wanted and I've been trying to ignore this for the last 2 days, and today I've relented. 

 

I most likely will be picking this up next week barring any disagreement with Footman James on Monday..

 

I think I have a problem.
