So for various reasons, mainly money and hopefully, impending engagement/wedding (sshhhh) this is deffo for sale, with a discount for shiters.

Currently, I am having the alternator replaced, as it basically died yesterday. I've sourced a good quality second hand one from a breaker with some warranty, and it's been checked and proven to work perfectly. It arrives in a couple of days, and I am paying to have it fitted. So the car is currently awaiting this in the garage.

I've already got an alternative vehicle sourced and don't need any PX's, just a straightforward sale. This was purchased from Colc of this very parish, and has been fantastic, alternator issue aside!

So..

-130k miles, FSH - stamped book, countless receipts and paperwork, totalling thousands of pounds..mechanically absolutely brilliant. Recent stuff like turbo and other bits, engine is sweeter than your proverbial nut

-Full leather with heated seats, Sat Nav, Cruise Control, dual zone climate control..all working perfectly!

-recent full service by me approx 2k miles ago involving oil/oil filter, pollen, air..fuel filter included but I ran out of time and haven't actually had time to sit and do it since

-rust free! underneath it is fabulous. Seems to have had a very recent new exhaust system too.

-MOT till 19th November 2019!

No knocks/bangs/ghosts/borrowers/cockroaches. It really does drive brilliantly. Comes with 3 keys, 4 matching Michelin Cross Climate tyres. Only negatives are it has a ding to the rear tailgate, and theres a small patch of paint that flaked off on the rear bumper thanks to aggressive car wash peoples.

I'm located in Quinton, Birmingham.

With regret I think I'll have to move this on. I've got to conserve money and the insurance is killing me (£90pm) and hopefully with significant future plans in place life wise, I could do with all the savings I can get. This car is fab, and I don't want to get rid at all, but I'm going to have to.

Bought from Colc on here and it's so much better than he described.

Comprehensive and I mean comprehensive history...some £££'s spent including new turbo etc etc. It's been bloody cherished! 3 keys and working sat Nov, heated seats, air con, the works, 128k miles.

Has original mats, boot liner too. No rust, and plenty of MOT, over 6 months. I've given it a full service and fresh wipers all round. Dry as a bone engine and it's such a cracking car. I've been to Wales and back and all over.

Only minor points is that a small patch of paint on the top of the rear bumper flaked off, and the glowplug light comes on now and again, TADTS and doesn't affect it. I was anninv on changing them, but summer is approaching so no need. Drives spot on.

£2100 is what I'd like, think that's a bargain considering the condition/history.

Oh also has full set of Michelin Cross Climates all round with plenty of tread

I'm now living in Quinton (lol)

Can confirm having purchased from Sims00 that he is a Top Shitter.

GLWS!

I've been admiring this since you put it up for sale, it looks lovely and the mpgs would be a nice bonus. I'd have to sell my other car for space reasons though and 8 days before baby due is probably not the best time to be suggesting such things to the wife...

Hope it sells soon, but if it is still around in a couple of weeks I may well be coming your way

I also have a huge hankering for this.  When 2 grand flutters out of a tree and brushes my cheek, I shall be making the call.

Have you had the engine cover off?  No sign of the dreaded ***** *****?

None at all, I've serviced it myself and inspected it too at the time.
