Dam insurance companies! uploaded proof of no claims, 1 year with Tesco 2 with Admiral. Didn't earn any in between as I had the Volvo on classic insurance.

 

 

Anyway, can only accept 2 years as that's what I earnt with Admiral, Insurer will only accept what is given by the previous insurer in the past 2 years.

 

 

So you're telling me if I had 10 years with 1 and 1 year with another (a previous insurer) Id only have 1 years?

 

 

Fuck Off.

 

 

The search for a new insurer then, and a full refund from this lot.

Admiral should’ve started you on 1 year and increased it to 3.

Unless the gap between policies was over a certain amount / the policies ran concurrently. All insurers will treat it the same unless you can get Admiral to issue you a cert that says 3.

What a day!

 

Went to go get 2 front tyres as the ones on the front of the Audi where lets just say "slightly unlegal" 

 

2x tyres & two track rod ends later and we notice the rear shocker has literally nothing left of it and the strut has almost snapped, cant wait to see how much that will be tomorrow lol

 

 

Anyway, hopefully, tomorrow - she will drive much better and be fully legal again!! 

 

I was recommended to not spend any money on this car and call it a day, but - I like it and its under my skin.

Hi all

Turns out I *may* need to shuffle this along soon, it's just not big enough.

Astonishing car. Literally, you can go anywhere in it without hesitation... But I think I need a 7 seater.

By the time I have tools in the boot and a PC or two (permanent fixture) there's no room for anything else.

If any one is interested, and fancies a drive. I wouldn't mind chinning it for something like a Galaxy, or some other similar steed. Has to be nothing special.

To be fair, something like a Picasso would do. Pref Diesel HDI format.

:( Shame, I've spent a fair bit on this too. Great car, but it's just not big enough, but a van would be a pain to park in my street!

Anything coming up?

Actually I've just found it.

Same issue, it's an estate. Something like a Galaxy/Picasso I can take the seats out (and leave them out) if preferable, then I can get ladders in and keep my tooldbox in there aswell as transport things to jobs.

Nice motor though.

An Zafira probs wouldn't be a bad choice either.

Audi in good fettle, 300+ pounds on rear shocker, new tyres all round, new sump and full service about 2k ago. Very very good on fuel, ona full tank mixed town and motorway I've done 500+ miles and still have about a quarter of a tank left. Not bad that. Mot due in Jan I believe, will need at least a CV boot and maybe discs and pads. Needs new hazard aetich which can be gotten from eBay.

Other than that, pulls like a train and will see another 240k without a doubt.

Lovely, looked at one not so long back and for some reason, insurance was astonishing so I may have to pass, cheers ... though.

270 miles done, about 30p of Diesel consumed.

 

Brakes do need looking at though, as you come to a stop there's a slight judder, feels like a warped disc.

 

 

Wonderful car!

Is the sale of this dependant on the buyer having a 7 seater to provide you with? Or would the correct quantity of beer tokens secure it regardless?

Hi, I think a direct swap would be easier. I just no I'll get a call out the moment I hand over the keys lol.

At this point, a derv Picasso would suffice.

I have bad news!

 

Cam belt snapped on the Audi... 

 

Unluckily. 

 

It has been replaced with one of these.

 

2.0 HDI, 117k, Drives well enough, and very cheap to insure and tax. Needs a new MAF (in the new year).

 

Transforms into a van also!!! Which is great - I can get 2 sets of ladders in the back.

 

 

 

Not bad for £300

I do miss the Jag, but I have almost nil income at the moment. I would have been able to afford to run the Jaaaaaaaggggggg so for now the Picasso will suit me fine :)

 

Interior is mint condition, to be fair. It'll need the usual spot welding come April for MOT.

Do any of you know how to program a key fob to the car? I have the manual / basic key but I want key fob too.

 

My key will stay the same and the fob will just be for locking / unlocking - possible? Ive bought the correct fob for my VIN on ebay for £40. 

 

On the Citroen forums they say I need Lexia because Transponder, but Im not using a transponder thats already in my key, ill put the fob and key on same keyring, 

 

This maketh no sense to anyone else,

 

A bit like the old Rovers, you got a single key and a separate two button fob - Same setup here. Except I need to program the fob.

 

Any Ideas?

Thanks all.

£40 to copy and supply a new or £25 to program yours.

Local to mcr but other locksmiths will do the same.
