I quietly got this just before my self-imposed ban on buying moar chod.
It's the facelifted version of my green one which means colour coded screen pillars, different door cards, seats and centre console. Colour is metallic red. I will get the code over the next couple of days. It looks a bit like Nightfire Red but might not be that actual colour.
Mate of mine was going to buy it from me but he hasn't sold his bike and likely won't now get it done any time soon.
It's a tidy enough car, currently awaiting a suspension pump up tomorrow lunch time.
No MOT as yet but if I get the chance I will try and sort one out before the end of roffle.
What has it had done since I have had it?
I fitted new horns, replacement used exhaust (but in good nick) and replacement front indicators as the originals were broken.
Mileage: can't recall but I think it is around the 75K mark.
Interior is nice and tidy, part leather seats, rear screen is intact but a bit milky and scratched (TADT).
Tyres are good, they hold air just fine. The boot mounted brake lights even work (got to be a first on all of the ones I have previously owned).
It has scuffs and stuff dotted around.
Starts and runs lovely, no overheating woes and is one of the quietest cars I have heard re: the VVC mechanism. My mate reckons it drives very nicely indeed even with the suspension at low.
What does it need?
Bonnet release cable as this one has stretched slightly, I may just take it off the handle in the boot and it can be used as a pull cable (done and works just dandy). It could do with either an oil temp gauge or oil temp sender as it doesn't register. Neither are pricey but that will be for the next owner to supply and fit. If you are really fussy it needs a drivers door lock. It all locks and unlocks on the fob but one of the previous owners took the barrel out. Why? No idea. You can get them cheaply enough but again, that will be for the new owner to sort out. Oh and one of the indicator telltale bulbs needs replacing. It's had the HGF done a while back and there are no indications whatsoever that this is an issue. Temp gauge sits happily where it should. It at some point in it's life had a bump at the front. The only reason I could tell was that one headlight is newer and one corner of the front section has a slightly bent lip, about the size of a 5p.I think it says so on the V5C.
It owes me £500, so I would like to try and get as much of that back as possible.
I've nearly finished the Toledo so funds will be going to that.
Roffle at £8.50 a ticket?
