OK, the Pug is being replaced on Monday with a one owner 89000 mile Merc CLK. She is uneconomical to repair at the local garage after my wife's cack-handed driving and general abuse of what was once a very smart and pretty convertible.I have a quote for scrap and it's £130, so I am not going to advertise for £300 or the scrap man gets it. It will be £130. Numberplate will be on retention later today and will revert to its original 52 plate number.
So, the bad bits:
clutch is expiring and hasn't got long.
needs a full service - badly! Some oil filters will come with car.
roof has a hydraulic pipe leak and rear window is knackered (spare ripped roof with good window (they zip out) available with car.
Two dents to rear
speaker trim and speaker on passenger side door buggered.
crack in windscreen that won't pass an MoT.
one careful owner and then my wife from new
two recent front tyres
49600 miles - yes, totally genuine mileage.
has an orange hardtop and fitting kit available for extra £70 - makes it look like a jaffa cake missing the chocolate but still looks cool IMHO. This offer is only available if you take the car - I will advertise the roof priced more sensibly if the car goes for scrap.
Has potential to be a nice car again - and these cabrios are very pretty.
Car located in the Forest of Dean. Available from Sunday.
