This is going well.

It's a perfect raffle; nice car, bit risky sounding potential issues (rattle), impractical for daily use (a/c), but cheap enough to take a chance on enjoying a nice car.

Roll up!

 

I hope that's how people are viewing it. I really want to emphasise that if you told me I'd have to do 400 miles tomorrow in it I'd have absolutely zero PHEAR. I've done 20k in it with no FTPs, putting several hundred miles on it at a time in hot weather (i.e. Devon/Wales) with absolutely nothing remarkable happening. It's still my daily driver/commuter and site visit transport while this is all going on.

 

Basically, I don't drive it tentatively waiting for a 'bang' and you'd have to be desperately, wildly unlucky for it to FTP for you on the way back.

 

Supernaut will hopefully vouch for how non-explodey it sounds. :-D

 

The seats are indeed wonderfully comfy, particularly when there's not a heatwave. Should be noted (from the photos) that the heated seat buttons are blanked for mild infuriation...

 

Anyway, the latest glut of tickets brings us over the half way point!

Thanks njgleeds; you are right, I'm 5 minutes from 15a of the M1.

 

Can pick up from Northampton/Wellingborough railway stations, too. If you're doing a hardcore collection mission there's a bus stop 30 seconds from my house.

 

EDIT - I've just worked out why davehedghog would be concerned with location :-D.

Yes, only 15 left, and it is looking increasingly likely it'll go ahead.

 

I am waiting for a PM from someone who expressed an interest at the weekend, but if the roffle fills out before they get back to me, the roffle will be honoured and you can all experience the Saturday night clench :-D.

Second potential buyer is out, so roffle or nothing unless I get another tempting insult.

Also forgot to add Bramz's's's ticket, which I'll do when I have a desktop again.

1. Numbers allocated

2. Once all numbers sold, payment is made through paypal, details circulated via PM. DO NOT mention the word which Roffle is a corruption of or anything else like that.

3. Clench sphincter

4. The next National Lottery draw after all numbers paid will form the basis of the draw, the bonus ball is the winning number. 

5. Collect car in a reasonable timeframe

6. Divorce

Yes, all rear seats fold to around 25 degrees (guess!) so you can put longer wider stuff in. It's a proper saloon with a ski-hatch at the back of the middle armrest. Boot is quite shallow but goes back a ways. It's a bit letter-boxish though, quite typical for a saloon I suppose.

 

Down to the final ten now...number 40 was available.

Sorry for the radio silence, I had a promising lead (off the forum) which looks like it's fizzled out, unfortunately.

I acknowledge that this modern S60 is up against stiff shite competition at the moment going by the amazing metal currently up for sale or roffle.

 

The last three tickets brings the total left down to 7. To get this over the line and within a vague shot of a Saturday draw, I'm introducing a new offer...

 

£8.50 a pop OR 2x tickets for £15! Don't worry, if you have already bought two tickets you will retrospectively benefit from this!
