  1. Nah, no need for that, ta. And yeah, having a second person controlling the stereo might not be a good idea. Glad you got it working again!
  2. Thats good work on the mirror, i thought it was just broken! Didnt realise they were heated either. I've found a remote control for the stereo for this if you want it? Deffo be fully gadget-ed up then!
  3. I trust that is fine steed has propelled you back home without any bother.
  4. Sold to top chap OhDearMe this morning, enjoy!
  5. I picked up my 'new' motor this evening so I could really do with shifting this. Any more roffle takers? Tempted to drop the price a bit, I'd rather not put it on ebay if I can avoid it.
  6. Ah. Apparantly they don't. I now have the only for sale thread on the main board. What a plank.
  7. Ok, may as well start a roffle list! 1. 2. 3. RantingYoof 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. Blakey79 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. Maurice Marina 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. 22. 23. 24.

  8. I may have found a replacement car, so I am now more motivated to sell this beast. Here's a photo of the interior to celebrate: 20190817_183401 Open to offers or will still roffle, tickets at £5 each or 2 for £9
  9. I bought this as a stopgap, its purpose has been filled, and now I need something more economical. Its a 2000 Mazda 323F, with a 1.8 petrol engine and auto box (4 speed with lock out in top). Its in decent enough condition, looks tidy, starts, runs and drives with no major issues, decent amount of poke when needed. MoT is till November. Interior is very tidy and shows little wear. Leccy windows, mirrors, sunroof which all work, AC which does not. The downsides are there are 3 small chips in the windscreen, all less than 10mm. And it could do with a tyre changing on the front as its cracked with age. 20190412_183535 20190412_183554 More photos when its stops raining. Oh, and economy-wise it averages around 33mpg with mixed driving, more on a long run. Looking for £300 for a sale, or prepared to roffle at £5 if theres enough interest, could do with shifting it relatively quickly though. I'm also up for swaps, preferably for something small, petrol and manual. Small Peugeots are a preference. Oh, and its in Lincoln. Sorry.
  10. Do topics posted in the main section with an appropriate tag appear in the for sale section as well?
  11. I've seen the Merc on Instagram, its been cobbled together in the last couple of weeks.
  12. I managed to get scooter No.1 back together and looking pretty tidy, so I bosched it on ebay and sold it to make some space. Acceptable looking: Kymco Agility 125 (21) I needed some space because I did a buy of something else 2-wheeled. 20190323_140213 A mighty Huoniao HN125. Supposedly a copy of a Honda CM125, its actaully not a bad little bike. Good for getting some road miles before I do my full license anyway, I'm enjoying blezzing about on it. Car-wise the red 205 has now gone over to Ireland and is in CarlosFandango's fleet, so my many years of constant Peugeot ownership has come to an end. For the first time in quite a while I didnt own a car. A change in personal circumstance has meant I'll need a car of my own again, so I set a meagre budget and a distance limit and did a bit of a searcharoo online. I must be out of touch, but it seems like £400 doesnt get you much any more, at least not within 15 miles of Lincoln. Far too many moon-miles ruined heaps being peddled around here. I did, however, manage to find something adequate. 20190412_183535 A Mazda 323, not exactly one of the most interesting or inspiring cars ever built. I have to look out the window to remember exactly what it looks like. 20190412_183554 But, it is well tidy, hasn't been to the moon and back and was in budget. The seller went to great lengths to tell me I wasn't going to be picking up chicks in this, but I think that the velour and autobox have a certain niche appeal. I'll be pressing this into daily use soon, hopefully it'll not turn out to be a total heap.
  13. I passed my CBT last week, and I've just won a cheap 125 on ebay to bomb about on, cant wait
  14. 205s are just plain ace. I've had 8 of them and will probably have another in the future. My pick would be a 1.4 TU engined version, even in regular form they are nippy and great fun to chuck around even in standard form. Petrol cars feel much lighter to drive than the diesel and I think that suits the character of the car. As others have said the cambelt is a doddle to do and the parts are all cheap as chips. When you're looking at one check the rear wheels haven't got the peugeot sag in the beam (though replacements are available - refurbs) and check for rust: in the boot, under the rear seat, check inner sills by lifting the interior carpet and look at the inner front wings. Gear linkages can sometimes get worn so its hard to find gears, but replacements are available. Seats can wear easily but replacements arent expensive and 3 and 5 door seats are interchangable. The mechanicals on the petrol ones are all a piece of piss to fix. Dont overlook the automatics, they go bloody well for what they are (I've had 3). The carb ones can have issues with the autochoke, but the later ones are single point injection so that solves that. There really is no reason not to get one.
