Worse than the Astra, you're even worse than the Astra. FOCUS FOR SALE.

Recommended Posts

New depths plummed (plumbed?) yet again...


(Year) 2000 Focus 2.0 Ghia (petrol)

It's horrible

MOT 6th August

It's horrible

Taxed end of July

It's horrible

131,000 miles.

It's horrible

Starts, runs, drives, stops.

It's horrible

Electric windows

It's horrible

Alloy wheels

It's horrible

Had two new tyres in May

It's horrible.

Right, that's the 'good' bits out of the way.

It's FUCKING horrible.
Was a farmer's car and looks like it.
Two tyres are a bit shit.
He says it smokes a bit 'sometimes.'
Cleanliness is on par with a herd of Fresians with the shits who reside in Jordan's knickers.
Windscreen cracked.

It looks, and is by default, absolutely fucking horrible.

Can you make use of it or some of the bits*? Can you beat the scrapyard? Are you fucking mental?

Please answer yes to at least one of those questions, but answer yes quickly.

Logbook is here, but so was the will to live about an hour ago and that's long since jumped ship.


£150 (firm) can take it from Chester, Cheshire. Pretty sure it's worth more if you remove cat, battery and alloys and weigh the rest in.

*I'm not stripping it for bits, you can do that yourself at your place.

Oh, the stinging irony of the number plate

Despite it being horrible, Mk1 Focus means there will be a good drive under there somewhere.

Was shocked when I first drove a Focus how just 'right' everything could feel on a car at high speed.

 

If I drove a tidy one now I wouldn't be as impressed but it would still be good.

To be fair, I don't think that's as bad as it looks. However, I'm not buying it unless someone wants to give me a load of money for one of the current chod-piles furnishing my drive.

 

GLWS M8.

 

 

To be fair, it's probably worse.

Nautilus to surface support vessel, Nautilus to surface support vessel, come in over.

 

We read you loud and clear Nautilus, go ahead, over.

 

Our gauges may be malfunctioning, but the readings say we have sunk to a new and hitherto unexperienced depths. It may be an all time low, over.

 

Roger Nautilus. Can you see anything down there, over.

 

Roger that surface support vessel. Theres something down here. It...... It looks like a car. Or maybe it WAS a car. It hard to look straight at it. I feel sick. I think its giving me The Bends, and eyeball cancer. I'm turning off the viewing lights then I'll surface. Are you recieving the vid-feed from the external cameras, over?

 

Roger Nautilus. We have a visual. Stay where you are. The decision has been made to nuke the area. E.T.A two minutes, over.

 

Its not that bad!! It must be worth a hundred and fifty pounds!! More if you take the CAT, wheels and battery off!!! OVER!

 

No!

 

Over!!

Lol some dick bought a civic coupe off me years ago and drove it straight down to Kent. Rung next day to say the battery was broken, he got a similar answer :-)

 

Only asking as it's test short and I've a apparently go a picky wife how would moan the arse off me if I went and bought some heap that needed a ton of work.

What's the chance of it passing it's test?

 

I'll say slim because I honestly don't know. It definitely needs two tyres and several thousand pounds worth of jet washing, then there's the fact it's smoking a bit, so the previous owner said.

 

I've pitched it at a touch over scrap money on the basis that if it does need too much work for the test, you could pull the battery, cat and alloys, weigh the rest in and sit square on the money front.

I started this today and it smokes like a Benson & Hedges beagle on Bank Holiday bonanza bonus overtime. I'll run it to the scrappy tomorrow.

Autoshite artist of the year 11/10 TYVM.

 

Now can you do an artist's impression of an Barry Shitpeas buying my Fiesta? It'd have to be one of those stood by the front passing cash with grinning faces. Maybe Barry has thought bubbles coming from his head with a picture of him driving down the sea front at Sunderland and I have a thought bubble with a picture of a topless Emma Bunton leaning out of the drivers window of a Mk3 Astra 1.4LS 3 door smiling.

      I have a Vespa PX. I love it. I commute daily on it.



      I don't have a bike license so I'm riding around on L plates which I'm finding frustrating given that I appear to better understand the rules of the road than 99% of other drivers. Or at least I know how to break them politely. Also I'd like to take a passenger from time to time.

      I'd like to take my bike test, direct access ideally, and I fully understand it's safety training as well, but £700? Ain't gonna happen. I'd like to do it myself on my Vespa, and given that it's a 125 and manual I could do restricted licence test on it couldn't I? NO! I hear you say! Why not? Because bureaucracy. How dare they take away my rights? You could probably fund the NHS with the money that they'd save by not ruining my life etc..

      So enter the LML.. A copy of the Vespa Made under license in India. It's identical in all but name and some suspect quality electrics. WCPGW? Because of modern regs, they've got a cat and hence a bit slower in standard form than the PX that they're based on, until you unleash an extra 10th of a horse by drilling a heart shape in the air filter. True story.



      So anyway, given that they're identical only slower, you couldn't possibly take your bike test on one could you? WRONG AGAIN! YOU CAN!! Apparently it's hard to hit the 31mph required for the MOD 1 test, but I think the naysayers aren't trying hard enough. WCPGW?

      ​So enter an ad on an owners forum. LML, 2 stroke (essential), 2000km, 2 years old, "broken right indicator". £MEGA BARG. I bought it about 2 months ago. Unseen obvs. The only problem is that it's 120 miles away. Several idiots on shiply claimed that they could collect it for reasonable money before changing their minds on time/date/ location. The vendor is a gent, a minister no less, and has been incredibly patient. However as God's birthday is approaching he was becoming less flexible making it harder to co-ordinate with a courier. Van hire seemed expensive and something about him told me that his arms to would be too weak to help me lift it in to a van.

      FUCK IT! Train booked. I"M GONNA RIDE IT HOME. IN DECEMBER. Forecast says rain all day tomorrow. WCPGW??

      Just about an hour ago I went to start my car up, had Mrs Dustman with me, to go and pick Miss Dustman up from work. Turned over fine but took a while to fire up.
       
      Steering felt heavy. Thought maybe as it's currently -5 + wind chill it's just cold & the fluid is thick.
       
      Started reversing out my bay then I was greeted with:
      "DING DONG" - ABS fault.
      "DING DONG" - ESP fault
      "DING DONG" - headlamp auto levelling not working, contact service.
       
      I shut the car down straight away and we went in Mrs D's Corolla.
       
      Alternator is less than 2 months old, it's a recon unit from Alternator Man in Portsmouth. Hoping the cold isn't killing the battery and it's taking the 'nator out with it (battery passed the drop test last time the no-charge warning came up). Looks like a session with the multimeter after work tomorrow.....
