Someone is winning a Vel Satis and Pies

Recommended Posts

Check this out - Had to pay for restest so cost £48 for the test and £40 for the bits ... on a £295 car.


No wonder I am not drinking champagne right now. 


It is a good result all-told though.  The car is iconic* on this forum



I lost far, far, more over 6 weeks of Avantime ownership. 


2.0 Turbo pez too, just like this one.  I must be mad wanting tickets for this Satis


Ok I did actually own it for 6 months, but only ever got to use it for 6 weeks before it fell over completely and had to be laid-up.  And over those 6 weeks it did numerous FTP, typically on the outside lane of the M1.  The limp mode program on these Renners is potentially f*cking lethal.  Not good for the Wife and young child when they were out in it.


Tonight will be keeping fingers crossed.

I prophesize (sic) that the unlucky winner will be properly in love with it within 1 hour of collekshun. And will maintain a long and healthy respect for the classy, big old boat even after the inevitable divorce and settlement.


The only regret I hold as a prior owner is that I haven't bought a slew of tickets.


Just saying, like.

Quality reference


With greatest regrets I'm having to return the money you gave me to reserve the life-size Pandagirl sex doll you wanted me to bring back from China for you. Sorry for any inconvenience, and I wish you all the luck in your quest for true love. Best Wishes - Alan.

Excellent... A man that actually wanted it, hopefully the good lady barefoot will as well.

Will give it a wash and clean out tomorrow.

No rush to collect. Am up in Scotland Saturday at Knockhill in.

I am thriled, although the fair lady barefoot is currently expressing a degree of displeasure and has gone to bed early. Then I nearly shat myself when I thought that you lived in Knockhill, Scotland...

If I die in mysterious circumstances I think you lot will have some explaining to do when they check my PayPal messages :-)


Another masterpiece




I can't stand people who think they are worse off than everyone else. My mate David is brilliant, he lost his voice and both legs in an accident, does he make a song and dance about it? Does he fuck. Here's that fiver I owe you, now stop berating me on social media for what was an innocent mistake, I thought you liked that type of stuff and was ready to come out and tell your wife and kids about our 'friendship'? Maybe not?

Quick update to this thread.


I am thrilled to have won this and will be collecting it a fortnight from today.

Sadly I don't have the skill to do live updates, but will bang on a big post with lots of pics of cars, folk, trains, buses and pies when I get home.

The fair wife appeared to be slowly coming round...

I took her out for a conciliatory drink this evening and out of the blue, a lurker on here called sofarsogood, introduced himself and asked if we were celebrating out win!

This was actually a big help, she is seriously over it now and I suspect looking forward to its arrival.

      I’m not sure if there’d be much interest in a roffle for a topless mills o’matic swede at this time of year but before I stick it down at the barn for winter, I thought I’d mention it on here...
      Its a 2006 9-3 1.8t with just under 90k miles and a good service history. It has been Mrs NMs summer chariot of choice but has now been stood down by a Berlingo diesel...the backup plan is to park it up over winter before prepping it up for sale in the spring where it would get advertised for its market value but due to the impending arrival of another toy, if someone on here wants to win it for the frankly ludicrous sum of £12.00, then step right up!!
      Good bits...
      All electrics, roof etc in good order, decent tires all round, plenty of MOT, working air con, polishes up nicely, will come with new discs and pads on the front.
      Not so good bits...
      Silly tax bracket so £48 a month to tax, occasional lambda fault which pops on EML....will reset and stay off for a month or two, slight bit of pogweasleing on the n/s front bumper where it’s had a smart repair in the past.
      Only got a few pictures to hand at the minute but if there’s any interest, I’ll stick some more up in the next day or so.
      Roffle tickets as it is are £12 each or two for £20 and the car is located near Burnley, Lancashire.
      Form an orderly queue.... 🙂

      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!!!!
