Afternoon all,

Well, I shall start by saying that over the past few months things have somewhat changed and I now find myself incredibly short of time (yes have been meaning to sit down and write this in this thread for the past two weeks but only now have I had the chance), with that said, I'm sure many would agree, come Sunday I am absolutely shattered and what little energy I do have I have to spend with my two daughters.

So (and I'm sure you know whats coming next) I have decided to move the ZX on. I know I know its a shame and this car was for me supposed to be a mini-project (project in the sense that I would mop the exterior and bring that back to life, just generally clean everything and then keep on top of maintenance) so some would disagree the use of the word 'project' is maybe a little strong!

Anyway, I bought her with no MOT and she needed very little to get her through an MOT. Some may remember me travelling all the way up to Nottingham to collect her on the back of my truck. I have probably added 200/300 miles to her?? She drives spot on, sits at 70mph fine and needless to say is hideously fuel efficient sporting the legendary XUD engine and Bosch pump - just in the last week I have replaced the fuel filter.

MOT - 19th Feb 2019 and I have 4x Keys for the old girl too

When I collected her I was genuinely astounded to the degree the meticulous maintenance had been recorded with spreadsheets made to record every time the car had ever had anything right down to the replacement of a light bulb! I have all this printed out along with reams and reams of receipts from back over the years, and a couple of log books (the old blue sort too I believe) Lots and lots of paperwork to go with it, upon lifting the bonnet, various areas of the engine have been written on recording the mileage at which it has also been changed) The cambelt too was replaced approx 10k miles ago.

She sports the typically french yellow headlight bulbs too. Have a spare set of normals too for you should you want them.

So a real shame (for me anyway) but she will just sit otherwise and that won't do her any good so wants someone who is going to use her really.

Am in Reading (J12 M4) and delivery is possible...

Sod it....going straight for the ROFFLE.....though if you do want it...Shitters price £395.....Anywhere else...£495 (yes that's £100 compensation for all those times the Gumtree, Facebook and EBay lot and mess me about)

Hit me with your numbers!.....

Good pics :) What's the sticker on the tailgate?

The sticker is one I put on when I had the car. It's a pisstake on drinking and driving. "5 to drive." The gears on sticker are pints of beer
From Mitchell and Webb I think
I good to see interest. I had it for sale on here for ages without a sniff. I loved that car I was genuinely sad to see it go.

Ooof I'd better have one. 22 please if still available otherwise a random.

 

I'm off out of the country for 5 days then will be busy next Saturday. In theory I should be able to keep up there what with EU roaming being free, and should get email notifications if I get a PM, in practice there's a small chance I'll miss it. If the roffle is sold out for Saturday and for some reason I haven't paid by then, I definitely will pay you for it when things are back to normal. Obviously I can't demand that you give me 'credit' like that and I'll have no hard feelings if you flog the ticket to someone else but please be assured that I'm good for it. Should be able to pay in time anyway, just saying like :) .
