This recently came into my world via a well know shitter.
This car is bloody lovely, no overstating this at all.
It's a mid metallic blue coloured, beige leather interiored, auto flavoured combo of utter loveliness.
The car is so solid and neat, there is a slight scuff over the O/S rear arch but it really is not worth messing around with. The engine bay is spotless, ever without me going anywhere near it.
The interior needs vacuuming and that is it. No splits or tears in the comfy leather seats. Headlining is great, no rips or tears. Standard stereo/cassette - business level. Sounds ace.
Split tail gate, very useful. Load cover is present and correct. Alloys are tidy with good quality tyres. I have a new OE bonnet badge to fit as the original is missing. Also has working rear parking sensors.
Air con works happily. Mileage is around the 125,500 mark IIRC.
This car is f*cking lovely and eclipses 99.9999% of everything I have had to date re: condition.
Needs for an MOT: NOW SORTED re:
some sort of PCV (??) breather valve thingy and hose. The idle is ever so slightly erratic and the consensus is that it is this bit that needs replacing. An 11mm socket and some jiggling would get it sorted. Kits are 38 quid on eBay. The car now idles and revs beautifully without hesitation or stutter!
Rear brakes will need a clean and tidy plus adjust as imbalance. I THINK that this is it, unless TWB recalls anything that I have missed.
Even the plastic headlights are lovely FFS. Sadly TfL have conspired to make it unusable to me in 2021. I could obviously get it sorted and use it but I have to trim things down between now and April anyway 'cos retirement. So rather than it sit in the barn in Essex getting dustier and dustier, I can either roffle it or sell it outright.
Any genuine interest?
Piccies now obtained!
