I bought this of a fellow shiter about three or four months ago. It was absolutely fine on purchase day and thereafter, right up until the point it went bang and chucked out a conrod. It's annoying because it's one of the nicest sinkers left. Apart from some UV rash to the boot lid and some MOT tide marks, it's very tidy and the interior is near mint. It would be a shame to frag it, because other than "rod gate" it's lovely.
With a 405 that is in the process of being restored at a body shop, and the 605 awaiting some much-needed spannering and painwork when its little brother returns, I can't justify throwing any more money at this, as much as I like wasting money on PSA crap.
The suspension worked fine at the point of death, and I can't think of why it won't now. It has had the system comprehensively overhauled by a Citroen licker of high regard, although I have no paperwork to back that up (verbal history m9).
ICE is very good, heater works and all the windows go up and down. The sunroof doesn't leak.
The MOT runs out in December. 118,000 miles. I think.
I just need it gone, so take it away for free - but bring a trailer and a spare set of wheels because I want to keep the brand new Michelin Energy Savers that I bought for it. Alternatively, give me £250 and it stays with the wheels and tyres They are the genuine article and I don't think I've even done 1,000 miles on them! Considering they cost in excess of £300 that's a pretty good deal...
Just to clarify, I am not moaning about the seller. It was an honest deal and a good price, but sadly these things happen to old cars sometimes. It's a shame, but a worthwhile project if you fancy one.
Free cup of posh coffee included, as well as a ride in a 605. If you buy now, I'll include a free marrow from my allotment.
Located in East Northampton, on the Northants/Cambs border. We're easy to find the A14 and A6 and there's a pub opposite if you decide you need refreshments but find you don't like me in person.
