  1. I have this Clio I was going to weigh in but I would like to save it, despite having quite a bit of scrap I'd like to put in it. Seems a shame though, it's not a bad little car but I'm not putting any effort into getting it tested then having to deal with penniless mouth breathers so if none of you lot want it for bridge money then I shall be getting bridge money. From the bridge. I can't keep it too long, the French Quarter is already overpopulated. It's done 97,000 and doesn't appear to have any rot. Sweet little engine. Exhaust hanging a bit low and has a slight blow. Body generally tidish. I reckon it's lasted better than Nicole has. Some rust though Interior ok apart from a hole in drivers side bolster. Pattern designed by a toddler with a felt tip Mirror is not to factory specifications The previous owner kept the battery ( these are worth a fortune now apparently...) I have one I can give you but it needs the fixing to hold it in place or a modification. It has sustained a small bump to the front. It hit something with a towbar hence the plate being broken and the bumper being misaligned in one side. Some damage in the drivers door. I was told it has been broken into but I'm not sure. That looks like a messy way to get into a Clio! So there it is. It is a pleasant little car, It would be sad for it to have lasted this long only to be thrown away. £120 to a shiter? Could deliver but I see no reason why it would not drive anywhere. Ludlow, Shrops
  2. Moving this over here in case anyone has missed it. Needing this gone within next 2 weeks due to losing parking space. Couple of faults but nothing major. Its mot'd til jan and in good running order. Price drop to £300 as is for quick sale, otherwise i fix the faults and stick it on bumtree for twice that amount! Would make a good winter beater for someone
  3. Right! I'm off to see this in about 1 hour. It's lovely old bloke who's selling it and he seems to have every bit of history from new. The first owner was his best mate. 8000 miles! I suppose it'll have some niggles if I press it into service given it's infrequent use.. My main concern is this however: Why the flip does it appear to be in the red when sitting idling? Duff fan? Has it now overheated or is that just where they sit?
  4. RJC_0193 by srblythe, on Flickr I got this at the start of the year with the intention of fitting a Fiat twin cam to it but I've recently come to the conclusion that I'll probably never get around to doing anything with it. Mot until November 2018 and 17k miles. RJC_1868 by srblythe, on Flickr RJC_1861 by srblythe, on Flickr RJC_1864 by srblythe, on Flickr RJC_1792 by srblythe, on Flickr RJC_1793 by srblythe, on Flickr RJC_1762 by srblythe, on Flickr RJC_1884 by srblythe, on Flickr It's had new brakes all round including calipers, cylinders, drums and lines, new clutch slave cylinder, hoses and a Weber carb. It starts goes and stops, with it being low mileage the steering box is in good order and it handles well (for a Lada) Bodywork is quite good, it's had a replacement wing and sill recently. Interior is nice with very little wear. RJC_1876 by srblythe, on Flickr RJC_1881 by srblythe, on Flickr RJC_1878 by srblythe, on Flickr I'm after £1500 for it and it's located in Fife, Scotland. DSC_0020 by srblythe, on Flickr DSC_0014 by srblythe, on Flickr I also have a 2.0L Fiat twin cam engine with gearbox, axle, prop, exhaust and some other bits and pieces. It can be included with the car all in for £2000 or I'd sell the engine separately for £600 or how about £1200 for the car and engine or a little bit less for the car on its own?
  5. Decided to move these pair on, some detail can be viewed here, http://autoshite.com/topic/31016-swedish-tank-no-2-and-random-shite-disposal-update/?do=findComment&comment=1425812 Estate is now out of Mot but taxed to get you home. Saloon will drive onto a trailer. Condition wise nothing much has changed since my last comments on them. Will be looking at scrap price if anyone wants to take either or both of them on. Will be posting a price after I've run the details through a scrap car site.
  6. Departarting from the norm, I'm being lazy and have actually managed to convince the seller to deliver to my house at no cost. It's only the other side of town but haven't got the time to collect today. 2 hour countdown starts at 9am
  7. This is quite embarrassing and for me extremely disappointing that after whole 2 days of owning Golden Sam I am forced to sell her... I can hardly explain how it came to this but basically there's no convincing my wife. Here's the previous two sale threads: http://autoshite.com/topic/20397-lada-samara-15-sedonafor-sale-%C2%A3350/ http://autoshite.com/topic/16583-i-can-haz-vaz-2108/ The car: Lada Samara 1.5 Sedona or if you wish VAZ 2108 2 or 3 door (however you want to look at it), what looks like some aftermarket kit, steel wheels, 4 Pirelli tires with loads of thread. FWD, no power steering, no AC, manual choke. MOT until January 16, just under 34k miles on the clock. Quite a bit of non original paint but majority is in gold. Drove over 200 miles on Saturday without a glitch or a problem. Semi-C has changed the master brake cylinder and radiator. I haven't had time to touch it otherwise. Location: Manchester - I could deliver as train tickets are not an issue for me. Price: As two days ago £350 - happy to consider anything as a swap. Below some previous photos as I will only be able to get new ones at the weekend. Bag yourself Shitefest Queen/King title and help me save my marriage. Original steering wheel fitted Will put her on RR and Lada forums only if it doesn't sell here. I could also Raffle it if people want
  8. Hot on the heels of last week’s collectioneering of a Xantia, another collection starts here and now. Well it is probably a collection as long as the car is as described, but I am optimistic. Clues. It’s enormous yet quite cramped. Never had one before and it could be considered blessed, saintly even!
  9. It's the green one. If you're proper horny for it then PM me, but anyone with cash can buy a car any time. Meh. Would roffle, but CBA with the admin. Therefore, funtime! Another KruJoe-spec 99p start AUCTION... (GBP (Pounds Sterling) bids only, no licked Twixes (John_F, I'm talking to you), bid increments 50 pence or more, that's up to you. Auction ends 24 hours after the last bid. Other T&C's may apply if I haven't thought of them yet.) It's a risk, but I'll take it. I've thought of a number as a reserve, roughly bridge price plus today's £50 MOT fee, so above that, I'm happy. If it doesn't work, we'll re-think, but his is will be a cheap car for one of you lot. Location: Central, so close to everyone on mainland UK. Collection: most days/times are possible, evenings are good. Relaxed timescale, storage is not a problem here. I can bring you to it from Skipton bus or rail station. The Car. My dependable daily for two FTP-free years. Ex-JohnK and Bramz. 1.4 Rti run-out model, lots of toys. Cheap tax and cla$$ic policy friendly (£140pa, Carole Nash. A.Flux quoted similar). Tested until 31 May 2020, advised on two back tyres. Not yet 62,000 on the dial. Likely to be SORN'd before June. V5 here, with loads of history. New oil and filter last week. Good batt, exhaust, brakes etc. There are a few minor niggles, I've just lived with it. Character, innit. Squishy-comfort velour in fine fettle. (Almost) everything works. The bodywork scrubs up well but there's some bits of rust if you really go looking. It doesn't stop it being a respectable motor… until… last week one of my favourite brothers rubbed a tractor down the side, damaging two doors and the mirror. All still work fine, and I still have the (undamaged) plastic strip from the door. I don't have the arsedness to try improving it cosmetically and I'm ready for a change of daily anyway. The worst would likely push out from inside. As would the small bit on the arch – it's single skinned there. Until that happened, nobody has ever turned their nose up at it, and it has attracted a lot of positive conversation. 99p anyone?
  10. 1991 Toyota Corolla 1.6 Automatic MOT July 2019 Selling as I need a more economical car for child ferrying - doing 240 miles per weekend. Solid bodywork, apart from a bodged repair to the front wing. Plenty of 'giffer scrapes' and faded / mismatched paint. Alloys repainted black, as weren't the tidiest. Wouldn't take much to restore to original spec. Mileage is 67,000 approx Used regularly as is my only car. All electric windows, doors, mirrors, sunroof. Interior in good condition. Fuel economy is ok for the age and gearbox, I'm getting 35-40 mpg Issues / Potential Issues:- Autochoke a bit - erm - not. Starts ok, just needs a bit of throttle for a minute and then just runs at a low idle. Interior light / door sensors a bit sticky - may get this sorted. Small squeak from brakes occasionally, but not excessive Exhaust baffles loose, so sounds a bit funny sometimes. Cassette player chews cassettes. Radio is fine. Car is located Essex, SS9 5 For the sake of transparency, yes I am 'Pandamonium', (or Alan to most people). Nothing untoward, I just wanted a new username, and had made this account before I realized you could request a name change! D'oh. Never mind, you live and learn. Now on ebay at £450 starting bid.
  11. I have acquired a vehicle. This is when I was trying to fix it so I could drive home. The car was offered FOC to the Rover 800 Owners' Club. They weren't really in a position to take it on directly, so it ended up being pointed my way. It's an 820 base model - SU carburettor-fed 2-litre O-Series! BAe was the first owner, for eight weeks, then it was sold to the father of the chap I bought it off, who sadly passed away last year. It has covered 105k, has a fair bit of rust in a few places, but is pretty tidy and looks bloody fantastic. It has a few weeks of MOT, delicious dealer plates, unexpected lumbar adjustment and electric front windows. One piece of wood on the dash, none on the doors, manual tilt/slide sunroof, spoiler! It had barely moved since July last year, but sadly, I got a whiff of hot brakes on the M55. I pulled onto the hard shoulder and the nearside rear wheel was smoking. I limped at 30mph down the hard shoulder to the next junction, which was not fun. I then limped gently back to the vendor, where I stripped the brake, used entirely the wrong grease (as it was all he had) to try and improve things, considered this a success and drove 180 miles home. I seem to have mostly taken photos of the rear. There is a petrol station shot, but you'll have to wait. I developed a horrible migraine on the way back and had to stop for a while. Most unlike me. Eventually made it back. It's all a bit complicated, but the idea is I have it for a bit and at some point, it'll end up back with the club. I think the plan is to sell it to raise some funds for charity longer term, but sadly, it could also do with a set of calipers and tyres, so finances need to be reconsidered I think. The brakes are SHITE. It could be air from boiling brake fluid, so I'll see if a bleed helps, but I reckon all the calipers are buggered.
  12. OK, let's try this again; the sensible hybrid is on the way. Late-1995 'Inca' 3-door 1.8 n/a 90000 miles MOT 19.6.2019, but will have new ticket before moving on 'Patinated' yet very solid; character dent in front wing; never welded, boot floor perfect Sunroof sealed, replacement provided Great fun on the twisties but good on big roads too; would drive this anywhere Tarty but comfy pleather CTi front seats (originals here too) Grips well in mud with a large SCTSH on the bonnet (SF16!) Previously polished by Outlaw Bob Colour-coded HubNut sticker for ultimate shite cred Car in WS12; taxed to get you home Shiters' price: £590 or Roffle at £10 a go.
  13. I thought i'd start a new thread for the Sharan i bought off Krujoe last week. I apologise that it's relatively modern for on here even though in most of the 'normal' population a 13 year old car is nearly ready for the scrapyard! I'd like to get it reliable as the few journeys in it have left me very impressed. It's very relaxing to drive with the tiptronic auto and very comfortable. It does feel a bit bus like but in a good way. I'm already planning some trips out with the family and grand parents to try and take full advantage it. I thought i'd list my plan of attack here although i realise it may not be the most riveting read. As you may remember i had an issue with limp mode on the drive home. Several issues to be precise. That's top of my list to try and sort. I've bought a full service kit off ebay with oil and all the filters so i'm going to do that tomorrow, I've also bought some forte turbo cleaner and diesel injector cleaner so will run those through it to see if it makes any difference. Also planning to get the codes read with my new lead and copy of vcds lite. Finally, to see if i can remove the egr valve and give it a clean and a last resort will be the Mr Muscle treatment for the turbo, when i've found it, but must admit that does scare me a bit! Here's my list:- Priority Sort limp mode - 5 pronged attack Oil and filter change Pollen, fuel and air filter change Put original battery back on and see if it works after a 24 hour charge (i doubt it) Get a replacement tyre (possibly a part worn) as one of the rears keeps going down Once it's running ok Check front brakes and see why they're a bit shit See if i can sort out the parking sensors which bleep but don't work (possibly a sensor) Book in at ATS for aircom regas (as they apparently don't charge if the systems's borked which i suspect it is) If a keeper Cambelt and water pump (i texted the previous owner and asked nicely if he knew whether this had been done - he ignored me - i think it's overdue) Sort out minor bodywork issues - stone chips and surface rust on rear arches Change ATF fluid (maybe, if i'm brave) Get a set of car mats Possibly get a spare wheel and holder (it hangs under the rear) as the originals are absent I'll just add that i've used the car a couple of times this week for short journeys and there's been no limp mode. I'll need to give it a good thrash down the motorway to see if it's properly fixed as i bought it to us to France in July so don't want to be pulling off at every service area to restart the bloody thing! Will let you know how i get on tomorrow.
  14. Going to try this on here before the fun that is eBay or similar. My mum has recently replaced her trusty old SportKa with a newer 500 and currently it’s just sat in the garage. It’s only done 38k with I think mum being the third owner plus a very large file of bills. As you can see from the MOT history ‘a lot’ of miles have been done in the last few years....! Has the leather interior, an aftermarket Bluetooth kit, Air Con that works and four good tyres plus working remote key. It has had some attention by a welder in the past but the filler area is solid and other than a few obvious bits on the sills and corners of the rear bumpers is in nice condition. If anyone is interested please let me know. I’m back there later this week so can look at the paperwork or anything else on the car in more detail. She’s looking for about £750-800. Car is currently SORN and located in deepest Lincolnshire (near Spilsby).
  15. Brief background to this: I swapped my Jaguar for this car 2 and a half weeks ago as I was desperate to scratch my v8 itch, a client who works in my office bought it last September as a winter hack from his father in law. He was always complimentary towards the jag, I've always fancied a V8, so when he told me he was selling it I asked if he fancied a swapz and he was up for it! Unfortunately it's came at the wrong time for me, as my hours at work have halved recently and I really need something with economies as I'm applying for jobs with a commute longer than my current 8 miles a day. A petrol V8 unfortunately won't be suitable. So to the car, it's absolutely brilliant tbh. Absolutely huge inside, comfortable ride, sits at just under 2k revs at 70 and goes like a fucking rocket with the foot down. 300bhp from the V8 engine. It's the ultimate barge. Gearboxes are a known issue with these cars, this one is smooth AF. selects every gear perfectly and goes through them smoothly when progressing. It has 103,000 miles on the clock, the car has full service history until 92,000 (mostly dealer) which was in 2009, it's barely moved in the past ten years,a couple of hundred miles between MOT'S each year. It was put back into service last summer, there's receipts in the glovey for an oil and filter change and an engine terraclean. Aluminium body on these cars as well so no rust, it scrubs up very well. 2 remote fobs and a spare 3rd key. Has a parrot Bluetooth thingy which is nearly new, it's been properly fitted, I'll leave it in there. Private plate with comedy RFL lettering included. That's the good bits, so what about the bad? There is a judder when braking above 35/40 mph. Brakes work well but can feel a pulse under the pedal. Will need looked at. Rear brake light warning light on,there is a light out on the drivers side, will get this replaced This car has previously had a coolant leak from the reservoir bottle and also one of the hoses, the previous owner repaired it prior to me buying it which cost £££ I believe, as access isnt great in the engine bay. It hasn't leaked since. It used to leave a few drips overnight on the ground, but has been dry the last couple of weeks. Tires have decent tread but have two different brands on the front and rear,which is a bugbear of mine. Aircon needs a regas m9. And that's it really. Car is MOT'd until July, and is located in Glasgow. £1750. I know it's not the usual AutoShite giveaway price but it's a beast of a machine. And I need to recoup my jaaaaaag money. A quick glance on autotrader has rough 3.7's and non quattro 2.8's for over 2k. Any questions please fire away. Cheers
  16. Short version of a long thread Bought Nov 17 with a blown engine Put new engine in that was worse than the old one Put another 70,000 mile engine in out of a 330D that I saw running this time It's got loads of history inc recon gearbox and suspension done Drives ok , no warning lights on , 2 keys, one needs a battery , 12 months mot, everything works inc AC Needs the blower direction box sorting , it's on your feet, could be 5 minutes , could be 30 mi utes then theres a whoosh as something frees off and it's all working normally I had a Google and it's something to do with vents, the box goes misshapen, I read a screw in the right place pulls it back into shape Inner rear arches behind the back doors need welding , heated screen only demists the passenger side It'll come with the original 18" wheels and wheel nuts as well as the 19" that are on it, but the 18" tyres are close to the limit Qualifies for modern classic insurance , adrian flux quoted me under £200 TPFT , I went with A plan at £300 fully comp I haven't advertised it anywhere else yet Original post below I've been looking at Range Rovers for a few weeks , in the past as I have a very competent/cheap mechanic I've bought a few projects that have worked out Ok but not a RR I've found one with an engine problem, not too far away guy wants shot of it so he'll take £1000 for it , it's a 2003 HSE with 150k on the clock, MOT history looks very good, it's tested until next april and he said it's had gearbox work in the last 6 months It's a really bad idea isn't it ,put me off with tales of woe, I'm really tempted to go and see it and risk divorce
  17. Just in case someone on here is looking for a project. Its not a big project. This one has been my love/hate car and part of my still wants to get it back on the road. Currently at hate/hate and with the way things are with family commitments it will not get fixed for months. Non Runner - Fueling issues (mechanicalk pump is not getting fuel to carb. Suspect auxiliary shaft) and background wiring issue with starter and carb thermostats circuits. More details if you talk to me so phone conversations welcomed.... Pm for more details/phone number. Live just North of Bristol. Money - Offers circa £750 Offers face to face after having looked at the car and talked to me are more likely to be accepted. .
  18. This green beastie is up for sale, virtually a years MOT, belts done by our very own Bobthebeard, so nothing to worry about there. V6 2.5, manual, drove happily from up North to down South and didn't miss a beat. I will be popping over to the barn today and will get some photos as we all know that this thread is useless without pictures, right? Colour is Le Mans green as far as I can remember, I will also try and get the colour code too. Mileage: yes, it has mileage, something else to obtain. It's had a couple of owners on this here forum, one was Chompysnake, someone else (sorry, I can't recall who), and then prior to me, Bobthebeard. It has a part stainless exhaust, cherry bomb silencer and an aftermarket air filter. It does sound rather bloody good. Tyres are great. Clutch is happy. It just goes nicely and looks ace. It is not perfect. It had a bump at some point in it's life but that has been repaired to a grand standard. There is a slight ding in the drivers door, but I will describe that better later on. No swapsies or px on this one I am afraid. £850 £795 or cash and a p/x is what I need from it, soz. Needs a forever home does this one. Classic insurance winner, FJ quoted me £189 with a 2000 miles limit.
  19. 1994 Disco 300tdi for sale, Black, 5dr, Manual gearbox. ES model. MOT expired Feb 8th, Of course, being an old Disco it needs welding. Being totally honest, it needs the rear crossmember done, likely both front inner wings, Sills tidied up, probably door posts, rear arches to c pillar etc, usual Disco places. Great project for someone who can weld themselves, i don't have anywhere to do it and thanks to the ridiculous rates of Units, likely never will. Labour costs to pay somewhere to do it make it uneconomical for me to have done. Mechanically, it's good. Engine excellent, (Has had EGR blanked, decat and i believe a fuel pump tweak, so pulls well) Clutch, gearbox etc fine (slight whine in 4th + 5th on partial throttle, all seem to do it with age and go on forever not getting worse, been like that for 3 years with me, had oil changed on gearbox and T box, levels all good and never gotten worse). Steering etc all fine. May need rear shocks for next MOT, Recently had 2 new tyres, New larger capacity battery, New rear diff, new rear prop doughnut, New rear exhaust section brand new rear calipers and discs + pads at last MOT, also comes with a box of spares, some belts, tensioners, gaskets, mudflaps, servicing filters, wheel bearings etc. Mechanical issues? not much to speak of, Usual Landy oil droplets at Transfer box and engine, Front half shaft a little clonky if you pull away sharply, that's about all. Starts first turn of the key, holds temperature all day long, doesn't smoke.(bar a grey puff at start up, likely weak glow plugs, starts fine and clears instantly) Body is tatty, as is interior (grey leather is worn, centre console is cracked and window switch pack is kinda just wedged in) but ideal workhorse or weekend toy once welded. Only 1 key, no remote (has had spider delete to lock and run off only key) I wouldn't be selling if i had somewhere to DIY it. Comes with large folder of receipts including for HG work, previous body repairs etc (but a lot of that needing redone, lived in Arbroath before i got it, so sea air + Land Rover = accelerated problems) Will sell @450 for a shitter. Worse is going for 700+ on Ebay with no spares or history and usually a lot more wrong and a lot more rot. Located in Dundee, Scotland.
  20. I have been (very mildly) berated in the past for starting a thread about an early noughties car in the modern section, so I was in two minds about where to put this. Having said that, it is a development of a car very popular here, and the more common version is relatively well thought of too. As this is model is relatively *RAER* (the type in general, this specific car is one of a limited run of 400) and due to unpopularity, is pretty much at the bottom of it's depreciation curve, I think it just scrapes in here. However, my usual warning applies; anyone of a nervous disposition, with a particular aversion to nineties French tat, please look away now.
  21. I know this is not the usual car to see on here but Tigerfox Jr has a baby on the way and he is discovering how expensive they are. It is a 2003 231 version with the 6 speed gearbox and has only done 34k. I looked at loads before finding this one and it is very nice condition Starts instantly, recent new battery and uses fuel at a alarming rate ! Mot until July and would expect it to pass as it has only done 500 miles since the last one I have more pictures and it is advertised elsewhere for £1795 and a forum discount applies so £1675, NOW £1500 Leather interior, air con, working electric and heated seats, bose radio/cd PM me if you want more photos or contact details. Car is in South Leicestershire
  22. Four Sail. Autoshite Decals. Thats "stickers" in old money. Medium Quality external vinyl. Will withstand prolonged mocking, and rain. Gr5 for adorning your lap top lid, enamelled tea mug, tool box, prosthetic foot, bus shelter, expensive guitar flightcase or underpant drawer. Pics* *please note that the 50p pictured is intended to indicate scale and is not included in the purchase price. If you would like to pay via another method, I am happy to discuss. Swaps, sex, real money, dares will all be considered.
  23. 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.
  24. SOLD SOLD SOLD SOLD!!! *****REDUCED TO £275***** NEEDS TO GO. Hi all. I'm selling my 1996 Volvo 850 estate. Just passed it's MOT with 1 advisory for greased brake pipes, drives really well, starts first time, good tyres and exhaust etc. Giffer owned, so has a few giffer features such as a block of wood to hold the boot open and a drawer string to hold the glove box shut, various giffer scuffs on the body too. Generally it's in pretty good shape, it looks smart, the interior is in good condition etc Bad points, Crack in screen on passenger side (not mentioned at MOT) A bit of rust in the screen surround Front floor wells fill with water, from I think the sunroof drains, can be fixed fairly easily or just tape the roof shut. Radio doesn't work Some rust on drivers front wing. £350 ONO collection from Stoke on Trent.
  25. Right, trying again. I need to downsize the fleet a little bit because of both money and space issues, and unfortunately this is going to be the one to go. As per the "Project" thread, I pulled this thing out of a builders yard in February, saving it from almost certain death. I bought it in the first place because I knew that underneath all the grime there was actually a solid car. Between February and June, it had all sorts done to it, including but not limited to (because I can't remember properly): - Engine oil & filter - 4 brand new Toyo Nanoenergy tyres - Welding to boot floor, rear footwell (I think?) and nearside sill - Timing belt & water pump - Cherrybomb rear silencer, because I couldn't find a proper one for cheap - Usual stuff like wipers and bulbs - MOT (exp. 13/06/2019) I drove it about for most of last month and put about 700 miles on it with 0 hiccups, but it started running like a bag of shite towards the end, getting air in the fuel (presumably from around the filter housing). Naturally, rather than fix this pretty simple issue, I went out and bought another car and decided that I'd rather devote my time and money to that instead. The odometer reads somewhere around 180,700 miles, but from the way it was running originally I see no reason for it to knacker up anytime soon. It really does drive quite well, it's an incredible amount of fun despite only having 59 hp from new, it's very comfortable and it's stupidly efficient when it works properly. It looks like a total shed, but for me that's where most of the appeal lies (others, including friends and various family members, do not see this). Because of this, however, it's kind of a hard thing to put a price on. I'm well over a grand into it in total, but I stopped counting a while back as my eyes would start to water every time I looked at the spreadsheet. So, price wise I'd be happy with about £450 for it, however if I'm dreaming do feel free to tell me. You could most likely drive it home, but I wouldn't be doing so without an AA membership or just massive nads in general, as it's got no dash lights and the headlights are dim as hell. It's located near Preston, Lancashire. Have some photos:
