Someone is winning a Vel Satis and Pies

Recommended Posts

Right time to put this up for a roffle 

 

53 plate Vel satis. 

It is effectively a 5 seater espace. 

2.0 Turbo engine 

6 speed gearbox - manual 

250,300 miles on clock and rising. 

MOT is mid November I think 

 

Comes with electric everything including handbrake (which works well). Huge stack of history including owners manual. 

 

So heated electric  seats, Cruise, Speed limiter, 6 disc CD changer, electric  windows all round (see below).

 

Sexiest clock this side of Xtriples barge. 

 

If you were a mouse then it is the best place to have a game of hide and seek as has many many cubby holes to hide in. 

 

Star of Hubnut TV and the beardy bloke gave it a 2.5 stars out of 5 review -

Challenging bits 

 

  • Passenger side window goes down in stages. This is just the cable that needs replacing. Happy to help someone change it as not that hard 
  • Rear Drivers window doesnt work - Dont know why 
  • No ac - tried a regas and got told that it probably had a leak 
  • Slightly misfire although ignored it 
  • Front brakes sometimes make a bit of a noise. Weather that would have Noah reaching for his waterproofs has meant I havent looked at this. 
  • Plastics are a bit sticky (not down to Dogging ... I think .. .maybe previous owners can confirm) 
  • Flashes up warning for low washer fluid (It is a liar ... the washer are wetter than an otters pocket) 

 

I literally have just been driving this since March putting fuel in and some oil once in a while. A totally rare beast that will have Renault lickers stopping you at petrol stations (they are mostly friendly) 

 

Located in Accrington but probably can do a delivery for train tickets home if you live in civilization (yes that might include Chester)

I borrowed this for the last couple of weeks and it did me sterling service for a thousand miles. It was a relaxing, comfy, wafting removal van and I flipping loved it. I got 38.6mpg on a long motorway run but round town stuff was less economical obvs. It never went below 30mpg though. I do drive like a pensioner on valium but that's what this car enjoys and encourages, change up early and appreciate the serenity. I can't say that I noticed a misfire and if anything I would say that this is better than described.

None of the above is to be taken as a guarantee if it explodes into a flaming ball of kittens or summat the moment the winner collects it.

I found it only misfired when I jumped on the loud pedal. I also thought it was cured when I put new ignition coils on, but i did put cheapo ones on, so it might warrant a new set.

The sticky vinyl was nuffink to do wiv me, guv, honest. I did disinfect it all, though, to be on the safe side, along with hitting it with a variety of chemicals, none if which had more than a temporary effect on said stickiness...

The next few days will see me struggling to not buy tickets. I miss its wellness spa environment.

I think this has been to my house, but I missed it!

For that reason I'll have a couple of randoms please.

 

It's a pity it doesn't have SatNav, not for navigation purposes , but because Renault satnavs of this era could be made to sing along with Snow Patrol's Run. Just increase the volume as they're singing 'louder, louder' and it harmonises perfectly.

 

The actual only good thing about the mk4 Espace I stupidly bought 10 years ago.

Cruise does work, I stick it on all the time.

 

Driver's window is back happily working up and down, with one touch each way.

 

Will update tickets when I get to a big pc in an hour or so.

 

 

As a bonus free gift, the car will come with two northern pies of your choice and four random homebrews (soft drinks available)

I think that is all numbers up to date. 

 

 

I've 'thanked' you for that OP, purely because DW in a captain's hat.

 

Just to clarify, the hat doesnt come with the car..... so how many tickets do you want?

Its selling well ... think you could have it back for just £6. and it comes with pies. I spoke to the car last night and apparently you were its favourite owner ... 

 

28 & 45 if you would please.

 

Just as long as it comes with the vaseline :)

 

Buy your own vaseline - cheek of it :-) 

 

Are payment options other than Paypal available?  If so I will have a random please.

 

Any money is good money. Many many options available 

 

I'll take the winning ticket and one non-winning ticket please.

 

Number 1 is definitely going to win so allocated accordingly 

 

That's extraordinary - has it had a replacement speedo?

 

Was used as a taxi I think. There are marks on dashboard where the taxi gubbins went.  It is huuuuuge so I can see doing airport runs is a doddle

      NOW EDITED:
      Proper funny-face Multipla
      My wife's car for last 8 years
      ELX spec, so has the twin sunroofs
      8v turbo diesel that plods on and on.  And on and on.  Did the 20 mile commute today, outside lane of M1 for a lot of it.
      Dependable to go anywhere. More reliable that was ever in the blueprint !
      Clutch 2016
      Cambelt 2017
      180k and everything still works including the folding mirrors, air con, both sunroofs, all windows, etc
      Some war wounds well what do you expect, some interior sticky plastics but nothing broken


      Some noisy front clonking to deal with -  was told it's the inner ARB bushings despite MOT man being happy.  Just been turning up the stereo
       
      UPDATE
      Now has a Cat-C marker because of this.  Grrr.  The upshot is the insurer valued it at £1k.  Stitched together with cable ties for now.   

      MOT all the way to October
      Roffling at £8.50 a ticket - it really is that reliable and I don't want it gone but wife is in ear about it.  Taxed and insured until end of the month, see
      We moved white goods with it last week and a whole fixed panels front end from a classic Mini (Riley Elf ectually) the week before.  So VAN status is achievable as the seats just lift out

      Things are a changing folks, the Rover of Smoothness has to go and I think a Rover Roffle is the way for this to happen.
      You can see piccies of the car elsewhere on the forum but will try and post some as soon as I can over the weekend.
      This is really a lovely car that has had some serious money spent on her over the last few years.
      I have had a new rear section of exhaust fitted, a new brake caliper fitted to the N/S rear and it has had the CVT fluid drained and changed by the Rover specialist in St. Albans just a few months ago.  I had a new battery fitted when I bought her as well. She is a lovely smooth driving car, utterly comfortable too and she motors along beautifully. Quibbles? The heated seats don't work but seeing as the seats are velour fabric, that really isn't an issue.  A few giffer scuffs on the bumpers are present and there is a slight ding in the drivers front wing but I have a good wing that will come with the car.  The boot lid will sometimes come down unannounced but I was going to add a spring to the mechanism and see if it helped.  That's it really.  Mileage is around 58,000 or so. MOT till November I think. The old reg will come with the car and the current reg will be retained by me.  No OMG HGF/coolant loss/overheating issues whatsoever.
      She is insured under a classic insurance banner by PBIS. This is a lovely, lovely car.
      Roffle interest at £8 per number? Taxed to get you home. 
       
      If anyone wants to cross my palm with pound notes then £425 will see the car bought for cash tonite mate, no X boxes, sorry.

      1998 Mercedes C200 Elegance
      126k miles, MOT August.
      I picked this up from AndyW201 about a fortnight ago as a daily to replace the Cavalier whilst I take it off the road, I've done about 1000 miles in it, drives absolutely spot on and Andy has definitely undersold it in his description.
      However, due to buying the A8 from sims and another potential purchase I'm in negotiations with on here, I really need to free up some space - my storage is absolutely maxed with stuff and I now have 4 cars at home annoying the neighbours, I need to make some movement.
      Scrubs up fairly well, it has had some odd touch ups around the body but nothing that overly stands out, decent tyres all round, all electric work, has cruise control so is ideal on A roads/Motorways etc.
      £350 or will roffle at £6 a ticket. Delivery possible.






    • By TheDoctor
      I don't like it. I want a small car. Suzuki Wagon or similar. 
      £350 or roffle at 6 quid each.
      Good:
      159,000 miles. Just under a year's MOT
      Leather Interior (Actually that's a 'bad' to some people)
      Bad:
      Complicated starting method - 2 keys and an immobilizer
      Likes a drink - TADTS (Plus it is Scottish)
      Smells oily sometimes - TADTS
      Tappy noise occasionally. Have been told Vanos - but hasn't affected anything. Might actually just be a loose engine cover.
      Gearbox hangs in a low gear for first 30 seconds or so of driving after cold start. Fine after that. 
      Bodywork has scratches and rust (rear arches)
       
      I don't actually have many pictures...
