2004 Rover 25 Streetwise IMPORTANT UPDATE PLEASE CHECK IN!

Recommended Posts

Ok I've seen something silly to buy and I would like to sell this first.

 

It's done a shade over 117k and there isn't a lot of history to show for it, last stamp in the book is a few years ago.

 

In my ownership, it's had new front pads and the tailgate loom has had a bit of rewiring. I unplugged the alarm's interior sensor as it was faulty.

 

I've covered probably 2000 miles in the car since I bought it, and it has been faultless, well other than the front badge falling off at some point anyhow.

 

It's got about 3 months mot left to run, i wouldn't like to guess at if it'd pass another without any work, but if a buyer wants to know for sure, I'd happily have it tested at their cost.

 

It is pretty scruffy and has a "damage" marker on the logbook (rear bumper has been replaced at some point, as was the front a few years ago due to an interaction with a motorcyclist).

 

It's a 1.4 K series, it had a head gasket and heater matrix 4 or 5 years back at the garage I work at, the temp needle never bothers the top half of the gauge.

 

What else can I say? It's a rough example of a late Rover... Cheap, honest, transportation.

As always, I can collect buyers from Lincoln or Boston railway stations, or Wainfleet if using National Express.

Ok I'm going to bring this back up to the top, it's currently MOT'd until November 4th, however I'm going to see about checking it over for an early test this week, so please if you are interested speak now, with a full ticket it'll be £340 or £275 as is.

 

Realistically, raffle tickets (assuming it gets a fresh mot) will be £7 each.

Ok I had it on the emissions machine today and the remaining guts in the cat are enough to satisfy an MOT tester, with that in mind it's mot is booked for tomorrow.
 
So to summarise, all being well 12 Months MOT, it's rough body wise, new pads a month ago, gear linkage stiff sometimes, 2 sets of keys & fobs.

 

It's located in south Lincolnshire, nearest stations are Lincoln or Boston, and I'm happy to collect from either, oh hey, whilst you are thinking of heading this way, why not augment your new Rover with some tat?
 
£7 gets you in, and I'll even give the poor bastard lucky new owner a limited edition* Autoshite dealer sticker!

Skatt: I should be over towards the garage a week tomorrow,  will you be doing any fettling then?

 

 

The day before Chumalongadingdong ... of course I'll be at the garage. I shall doubtless be trying to fix whatever vehicle I have decided to take on the 300 mile round trip the next day.

If you're gonna pop round to the garage next weekend mate I can give you cash monies for the roffle tix if you want.

Theoretically, if you raffled this on Weds, Skattrd could collect it for me and bring to Chumley, then walk home with two Toyota wings under his arms.

I have addressed the missing badge from the front end, as I couldn't be arsed to find a proper one, this is now filling the space:

A most worthy addition I'm sure you'll agree, and a handy component for bringing this back onto the front page. :D

      Well I've got little something tasty to roffle. Its my W reg Alfa 166 TSpark 2.0 manual.
      Good bits
      It's an Alfa
      It's black or purple or, well aubergine I'd say
      It's got just over 66,000 miles on it
      Had new battery in August, cambelt a couple of years ago and catback exhaust.
      The seats are plush and it is supremely comfortable, it feels special to sit in and I look back at it when I park it.
      The aircon works a treat as does the electronic folding mirrors and radio (cassette only don't y'know!)
      But the best bit is how it handles, it's my first alfa and won't be my last, the steering input and feel is wonderful and the suspension takes corners really well. It makes my old Xantia feel like a sack of shit in comparison.
       
      Bad bits
      It's an Alfa
      The lacquer has peeled over the roof and a bit on the boot, paint is thin with the odd scratch and scuff. 
      The clutch pedal makes a squeak, sounds like the bushings behind it.
      There's a droning sound from the downpipe area
      Passenger seat headrest has somehow broken from its masts
      Boot badge missing
      Erm,
      The drivers door window control panel cannot operate the offside rear passenger window.
       
      As in keeping with this place I think I've listed everything honestly.
      Including my reason for sale being that Mrs Kringle hit the roof when I told her of another car in my fleet and especially when I used my inheritance from my late nan...
      Anyway, I love it a lot but it can be yours for only £10 a ticket or two for £18
      Location BA15 (Bradford-on-Avon)

      Six-Cylinder Entertains – Virtual Roffle of my Maserati BiTurbo
      As I can’t sing or dance I had to think up an alternative entertainment. I have noticed how much people enjoy a Roffle and obviously collection is difficult at the moment so I am holding a Roffle for one of my cars, the difference is it is virtual and no collection needed!
       
      You can dream for a short while of having a Maserati BiTurbo. I value the car at £5,000 so tickets are £84.00, usual format after all numbers are “sold” the bonus number of the next National Lottery draw is the winner
       
      To make it clear you will not get my Maserati at the end of it, neither will you have to pay £84 for a ticket.
      I do have a little treat for the winner as I have a 1:43 scale model of a Biturbo saloon to send them as a gift. If you are the winner and want to be taken out in the real one or maybe even have a short drive after lockdown I will be pleased to accommodate you.
       
      Up for Virtual Roffle is my :
      1987 Maserati 425 biturbo saloon, 2.5 carburettor twin turbo V6 190 bhp and feels more because of a great wedge of torque in the mid range. 5 speed gearbox with dogleg 1st.
      Owned for 7 years.
      MOT 13th November 2020, but I believe it will benefit from having 6 months added to mean it will not need a fresh MOT until May 2021.
      Excellent running condition. Just 60, 000 miles, original leather book pack with service history to 48,000 miles then lots of invoices. Cambelt 2 years ago, brake callipers, recent pair of new tyres. Several rubber fuel lines replaced including the dangerous one that lives in the turbo pressure box.
      The Bodywork is always a bugbear with these and we have chased rust a couple of time, windscreen surround, front wings and boot floor. Now a very sound and tidy car if not prize winning.
      Of course there are some negatives:
      Radio/cassette is not working
      Wheels need refurbishing
      Some wear to the interior
      Idle a little high
      Electric boot release can be a bit problematical
      Bonnet 2nd catch release needs a clip.

      Remember you only win a 1:43 model, but there is nothing to pay to enter.
       
      No I don’t want to sell the BiTurbo this is just for fun.

      If you saw the News 24 in the early hours you’ll have seen my next car is due since it’s back up north, so now the collection!
      So all I know of this car is the make and model, colour and year. And that it had an MOT. What have I gotten myself into? 
      Alexia, play Mr Blue Sky...

      This roffle DOES NOT include two new genuine wings. They would be available to purchase by the winner, or I'll sell them separately.
      12 months MOT

      this is mother gm with her little "redster" on the day I handed over the keys

      many adventures have been had over the past year but it is now time to find a new home for the plucky pug
      basic infos : 126350 miles, mot until October 2020, in the last year it has been serviced, had a new exhaust, battery and a set of winter tyres, it's a fun little thing to chuck about the back roads and, as you can see, is a breeze to park


      (she will kill me for using those photos)
      the waving elf has sadly been removed, it was deemed to be inappropriate for a funeral convoy last week
      the bodywork looks better in the pics than in the flesh, there are a number of scrapes and dings, at some point it's had an accident repair





      but the steelies are painted "Peugeot Rallye White" which more than makes up for it 
      inside is pretty clean, everything works as it should - not that there are many toys, the CD player has an aux in and the windows are electric, the gearnob is a genuine JakeBullet poolball, the parcel shelf is a gm original with one sony and one jbl speaker
      that speedo optimistic, it will not top a ton but will do 70 in second if you push it, 90 can be achieved in third, fourth or fifth - it doesn't seem to matter which 




      there is a spare tyre and toolz and a tottie wee engine in there somewhere


      so who's up for a random or two ? 
      tickets are £12 each or 2 for £20, PayPal preferred, it is taxed (only £20 a year) but not currently insured, location is Chester-le-street, the lucky winner can be collected from Durham or Newcastle station
      who wouldn't want to be this happy ?
