I've been very busy for the last month, and a lot has happened. This car however, has been a gem and apart from me sprucing it up, it has been an excellent thing. I have the "change my car" bug again, and I will offer it up properly now on here. I've replaced the centre caps on the alloys, new aerial, fully demisted the headlamps (like new), 4 new NGK spark plugs, pressed number plates, Bosch LED sidelights front and rear, fitted an AUX in to the stock stereo too. Selling it for a smidge less than I paid, and not including the expense that I have gone to. This car is brilliant and economical. I think I want to go old again.

 

Some spiel from the previous (excellent) shiter from whom I purchased it from as follows:

 

2007 '57' plate Mazda 3 Sport 2.0 petrol in Aurora Blue with 11 months MOT (due Sept 2019).

 

109k miles FSH 

 

new discs & pads all round, 2 rear shock absorbers & 4 new tyres fitted (all the same brand) which have still got plenty of life left in them.

 

It is equipped with DSC, traction control, cruise control, 4 elec windows, elec heated mirrors, leather interior, 6 disc cd changer (with factory fitted Bose sound system), climate control, 2 keys

 

MOT till Sept 2019

 

The car is in good overall condition (surprisingly un-rusty for an 11 year old Mazda, not even any previous MOT advisories for rust!!!), and has some stone chipping / car park dints / general wear & tear for an 11 year old car.

No idea tbh. I know that the engine was Ford developed or a Ford unit. The dipstick has "FoMoCo" on it.

Awesome cars, good on fuel too.
Felt like a very light MK2 focus when I drove one, was 09 plate though.

Really are light and easy to drive. Handles well and fuel economy is great.

Also popped a fresh set of valeo wipers all round.

Have a thread bump. I thoroughly recommend this Autoshiter as a maintainer and seller of motor vehicles. The wipers on the LS400 (which I believe sims also replaced prior to selling) are almost eerily quiet, particularly after the less graceful ones I had on the S60!

Bumps.

Price drop to 1150 if sold by this week. I really think I want the Prelude back.

Excellent value there. Based on the same platform as Focus MK2/Volvo S40 MK2, the 2.0 petrol is a Ford unit (I think) found across all 3 brands.

We have a 2.0 Focus MK2 saloon which gives better fuel economy than the 1.6 MK2 we had, and is better suited to the car given it feels much heavier than a MK1.

The equipment levels in the Mazda are awesome in comparison, you do get much more for your money at this price point. We did find the comparative insurance to be higher when we were shopping for a car at the time. If we didn't already have the Focus, I'd still be tempted by the Mazda. That colour really suits it too.

Glws!

Very good tbh. I do 22 miles combined to/from work, and I average high 30's. On the motorway, I nudge just a smidge over 41. Genuinely impressed by it, the 6th gear really helps

I've sent her the plate and some pictures, she's running an insurance check.

 

I suspect it's going to be too dear for her to afford to insure, as she's just had to claim for a knock for knock on her golf, and she's only a youngling.

Bump. 1100 for a car in this good nick, that drives lovely. Come on down!

If I can't, I will just keep it and cherish it. I do have my eye on an older jap diesel though. Lol

I asked my mate and she told me she can't afford the insurance.

When I saw what she's getting quoted, it makes me happy I'm going grey.

Christ.. no wonder so many of dem yoot don't get into cars.
