Afternoon all, 

 

My wife is changing cars this weekend so her trusty 147 JTD will be for sale. 

 

It's a facelift 2005 5 door with the 8-valve JTD 115hp.

Pre-multijet, no DPF, so relatively simple as modern dizzlers go. 

 

Has had various bits done in the 3 years we've had it, cambelt and waterpump done by my own fair hand about 2 years / 8k miles ago, had I think 2 top and one bottom front wishbones at the last MOT so the suspension is creak and clunk free. Drives great, handles really well for a FWD hatch, brakes are sharp as the front discs & pads were done last year.

 

Issues are mainly cosmetic, there are a couple of small dings and the paint is flaking off on the front bumper, think this maybe a past repair as we've done nothing to provoke it but it's got worse over the last year or so.

 

It could also do with a MAF sensor.

 

It started hesitating out of junctions so I checked the injectors and turbo control bits (which were all OK), unplugging the MAF fixed it so we've left it unplugged. 

This gives you a "MOTOR CONTROL SYSTEM FAILURE" message when started but does not affect driving or mpg.

 

On the mpg front, it's always given us 38-40 in stop/start traffic around town, if your commute involves any A road or motorway you should be at 50+mpg, it's the same engine as Bollx's Stilo.

 

Equipment wise, it's a Lusso so comes with electric stuff, well comfy leather interior and cruise control. Can't say if the cruise works, it has a fault code flagged for clutch switch so may need minor investigation there.

 

It's passed it's test today so covered till August 2019.

I had it done at Halfords Autocentre though so they've gone a bit mad on advisories.

advisories.PNG

 

Price, £750 to a shitter? We bought it for £1100. Or roffle for £12/ticket if there's interest.

 

We're in Brighouse West Yorks which is near to such train stations as Leeds, Bradford and Huddersfield. 

 

For the MOT history crew, it's currently on my wife plate which is TR51 HDR, although it will go back on it's original plate BK55 CUX before sale.

 

Here are a couple of out of date pictures, will update with current ones once I've got them.

How the fuck is the road wheel distorted?

Surely that would be dangerous if it was worth mentioning at all.

There rather good little cars these despite what the nay-sayers preach. My 147, ex drum was a cracking car despite its rather careworn looks (EVERY time pulled at the customs at Dover) it plodded on for the 18 months or so I ran it. And it went everywhere.

In 18 months
1x idler pulley failed on the aux belt (it was squeaking when I got it).
1x battery fail in the winter.

That's it. Yes it rattled like a good 'un from the front suspension but then people worry too much, don't they?

Dunno M8, I'm still at work, was planning to ask when I pick it up. 

 

It's my first time at Halfords, I think they apply a scattergun approach to advisories in the hope of picking up some work. 

 

Certainly if the sill has anything other than mild surface rust I will eat a hat, the thing was free of corrosion of any sort last time I was under it. 

 

Of all the advisories, if we were keeping it I would do the rear pads and nothing else.

Yes sir, does have a sunroof, and also aircon. 

 

The aircon is only cold-ish, probably JUST NEEDS A REGAS M8.

Because I am special (in my own way) I sort of want to convince myself that I need an Alfa to match Mrs Sims impending arrival...

These are ace. I looked at one that was advertised on eBay just after I got rid of the 156. It was silver and as mint as a bar of Kendal Mint Cake. The bloke selling it was a part time trader, lovely chap actually and very local to me. He wanted 500 quid for it which was a bargain. I didn't take it as it wouldn't fit under the classic insurance umbrella that the 156 did. That was the only reason. I kick myself now for not buying it and just stashing it 'until older'.

2003 110 JTD ELX so twin roofs, 175k yet it is proper dependable daily (and holidays abroad) workhorse.  Cam belt and clutch last year, everything works inc the aircon ('cause recent rad).  Ticket October.  Had arms, drop links, springs; after all had it 6 years.  Interior plastics tatty because TADTS.  Couldn't replace for anything less than 500 notes, but then don't ever expect a new car for 500 notes.

Brilliant... late in for lunch I fired up an off-brand pot noodle and while carrying it to the lounge successfully spilled it all over myself, burned the piss out of my hand, soaked my phone with the juice, soaked a load of expense receipts I was also carrying and it hit the hall floor and just fucking exploded....it was literally dripping from the ceiling in my newly decorated hallway. The obvious and considered reaction was to throw an immediate, massive paddy and boot the fucker down the hall while screaming, which has made the whole scenario about 18 times worse.
