  1. Picture makes it look like a headlamp is faded, it isn't! The sun was shining on my picture lol
  2. 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.
  3. Genuinely interested, have the Merc to swap too. Can I have some interior shots please?
  4. I want this, it's strangely alluring.
  5. Genuinely interested. Basically a larger version of my estate
  6. As much as I want to, the Merc is too good right now. Practical, powerful and comfortable. Sake.
  7. So a quick bit of research, explains why on cold start the car can be a little spluttery. The glow plug light coming on randomly indicates a failing glow plug or two, which links into the EML being thrown and with no drop in performance. That's fine, I've ordered a full set of BERU plugs and will sort whenever I can actually find the time..my schedule is stupidly busy. Still, hooned it back up to the west midlands a treat. Genuinely love this thing. I probably won't bother changing glow plugs myself..I'd rather farm it out to my trusted mechanic!
  8. Haha. Not come back on again, I'm not fussed. Nothing changed in the drive so meh
  9. Weird. EML came on during a motorway journey, no loss of power or anything. Plugged code reader in, said none stored. Deleted it. No issues. Odd?!
  10. I did, all in good order thankfully. They're not a bad job either to sort. I'm pleased with this!
  11. Well this was overdue a service. Despite it being cold and me not feeling my fingers, oil/filter, air, pollen, fuel all done with a new rear wiper and now she purrs. It's such a pleasure to work on, minimal tools needed!
  12. And home. Top seller would buy lots more shite a++ Now I'm going to sleep for 20 hours. I've done almost 6 hours driving on 2 hours of sleep and I feel dead inside like my emotions
  13. Collected and blasting back. Jesus Colin lives in actual heaven
  14. Right. Finished a night shift (2200-0700) and I've had a total of about 2 hours of sleep. Breakfast consumed. I'm behind schedule. Let's get this drop off/collection going then shall I? ETA..3 hours. Lord have mercy
  15. I was genuinely disappointed. He mentioned it as I had won it but I was annoyed that such a fault should clearly have been mentioned at the start. Oh well. I'll continue to stick to AS for my stuff, I've never been let down. Proper gold this place
  16. Seller decided to give me the "oh btw it has this one minor (major) fault with the gearbox..." Line when I rung him to arrange collection. No thanks
  17. Couldn't pass the chance up. Auto, diesel, comfy and power. Passat is ace but I'm a lazy shite. All being well, next Friday for collection drive!
  18. Got mine the other day. Thank you! I actually will use this! In other news my SS has been sent and is being delivered to the lucky recipient tomorrow!
  19. I've not even posted mine off so apologies. I've had family/work matters but I shall hopefully do tomorrow
