Right guys my Altea head gasket has gone and blown and the repair costs are not economical. I’m on the lookout for a cheap runabout. Diesel preferably. If anyone knows or has a cheap diesel let me know.

Seeing as the current owner has just become the roffle winner for a fine red vehicle I am sure he would be very keen to see this sold.

I might take an offer on the Puglet, particularly if assistance could be given with shenanigans for a certain other red vehicle … too many red cars.

I’d just get yourself on Autotrader or Bumtree and see what you find. If you need it for work your no good waiting on here for a diesel to appear in Rhyl.

Is it definitely a blown head gasket? I looked up your Altea when you posted it for sale, as far as I can work out it uses the venerable VAG 1.6 8v that can show some HGF symptoms when it's actually fine, like mayo under the oil cap.
