Hi all, I took this as a partex from yehitsryan who needed the Lancer. The only problem is I don't want it lol

So here it is in all it's glories* 108,000 and MOT till December. A few spots of rust, overall it's ok and the dash change is a fun break from the norm. He drove it 250 miles to partex it so seems to run ok... It's got a new sump and brake lines. The sump gasket has been poorly fitted, and there is a small oil leak because of this £300 or £5 a ticket

Sorry! It's in Chard Somerset. But can deliver for fuel and a ticket back within a radius of say 150 miles?

They're not especially ace, but are pretty dreadful to get rid of.

 

Call in the crusher.

These (and I speak from 2 days experience) are absolutely  and totally ace! The power it has is absolutely staggering for a 1.4 and dash change is a fun and interesting quirk :) - personally I would definitely keep it if I were:

1) Not going travelling

2)Had the facilities to get the sump gasket sorted - been quoted £150 for this

 

£5 a ticket? It's a great roffle in my big headed opinion....

I think at £2 a ticket it could be a laugh, but £5 for a dull car which needs work?

 

Maybe it's just me, the last roffle i ran was £1.50 a ticket and I could have weighed it in for more than that..

Right then people, due to the lack of enthusiasm I am going to offer this car one last shot at life. The autobreaker place that was mentioned on here as offering generous bridge prices has quoted a bit over £200, but I prefer not to kill a viable car so if anyone wants this at a rock bottom bargain £200 please get in touch

Would hate to see this car go over the bridge for the sake of a leaky sump gasket... still got plenty in it...

The Lancer is great mate. Not as good on petrol as I thought I would be. However I think it will take me a bit of time to get use to it. Probably only getting 350 mile to a tank at the minute

That's about all you're going to get from a large car with a 1.6 petrol in it I suppose. Basically they're a bit underpowered for the weight of the car, a 2 litre non turbo would probably actually return better economy...

If it helps to sell it - they don’t have a sump gasket - just silicone . Even cheaper to fix

One of the funniest things ive read on here - RIP Dave

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.

I now own this, albeit temporarily...

My insurance company were a bit huffy about covering it on a multicar policy, quoting £1070, so I told them to stuff it.

Then my uncle messaged me to say his Renault Scenic diesel had shat it's turbo and did I know of any bangers for sale...

Well, he's not new to Autoshite having owned the ex Station / Barmatt Nippa previously.
