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!

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

      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.....

      Going to roffle for a fiver a ticket, two for £8, 3 for £11
      In good working order apart from the head gasket. 
      Put the ventilated header tank cap on, take it easy and bring spare water and you will be able to drive it home. 
       
      It doesn't overheat, just pressure in the cooling system. Cylinder compression is good. 
      MOT April 2020

      This has been dragging with the end tantalisingly in sight, so inspired by the worthy @SRi05 I'll pop it in here and see if anyone who doesn't visit 'Shite For Sale' is interested...
       
      Quoting now...
       
      After having recently gone through the fun* of selling a car on eBay, I thought I'd try my luck on here. I only bought this a couple of weeks ago on a whim, thinking it would be ideal for shooting down to France with the wife and the dog to visit the in-laws, but the wife has taken against it HARD due to the lack of air-con (she's not worried about us - it's the dog!). So it has to go.
      Bad bits first, as is AS tradition. The A/C really is gone. No amount of re-gassing will fix this! A few patches of rust here and there - none look bad enough for welding. A bit of rust converter and bondo and job jobbed was my plan. Laquer is starting to peel in a few places. The remote central locking doesn't always unlock the passenger side door (although it does always seem to lock it, which is odd). Tailgate has a decent dent in it. Nothing to do with me, it came free with the car. Tailgate still works fine, though.
      Good bits. Maybe it has been too long since I was last in a rear-wheel drive, but it feels to me like it pulls away from the line very nicely. The six-speed box feels nice and precise, and lets you trundle along at 70mph with the engine only doing about two and a half thousand revs (not had it long enough to really measure fuel efficiency). MOT until Feb and taxed to get you home.
      Located in Ipswich. I was thinking £9 per ticket, or two for £16, three for £21. Any takers?
       
      PRICE DROP !!!!
      £8 for one, £14 for two, £19 for three. Buy Buy Buy!!!!
