I have a certain 340 Volvo that needs to go to a loving home, bit outside your budget but trusted shitter payment plan is on offer ;)

I have looked at it but sadly an ex boss of mine who I hated with an absolute passion drove one so they are forever associated with her to me. I am surprised you haven’t found a new home for that one mate as it’s a nice car. I also looked at the 1300 but it was just too much of a project at the moment.

Chaseracer came up with the solution to this, initially in form of a game.

 

1. Go to eBay -> Cars, Motorcycles & Vehicles -> Cars.

 

2. Set filters max price 300, max distance 25 miles (or whatever), sort by ending soonest.

 

3. Buy the first car in the search results.

 

 

 

I just did it for myself and it returned this:

I like the new game you've started -  I'm sure it's come up in the past but still fun -

The motivation to get the Capri sorted is to get another snotter, that you could probably do without and will suck up time and energy.

 

Man-maths means something is inbound. Scumtree has a MGTF that may miss your brief but they are good fun

It's Chaseracer's game!

 

The twist was 'let's see how long it takes until someone actually buys his search result'.

In true spirit of this forum, it happened within the first third of the first page of the thread.

Sort of works for me.......

To start the ball rolling. Suggest me a saloon, buying price under £1500 to suit my executive lifestyle. I'd like something with either a V6 or a straight 6, ideally 2.5l or above but capable of 30mpg on a run. No diesels.

 

Starter for ten to mark out the territory. Competitors to a late 90s/early 00s Lexus GS.

 

Ideally with no catastrophic weaknesses. No rovers/MGs.

I've been planning on starting a thread; if anybody sees a good Volvo 850 tdi estate auto for sale I'm all ears

 

Or if anybody can track this one down that I missed a couple of years ago; I have the same one in petrol but commute getting longer; it was sold to Wexford and I've had a few eyes looking for it with no success

 

http://www.adverts.ie/car/volvo/850/1997-volvo-850-2-5-tdi-full-nct/5295281

 

I've no problem going to the UK to pick one up; I'll end up paying 700-1000 to reregister it, then €1080 a year to tax it; so to travel and pay all that I really want a good one; hoping to do it this side of Christmas :)

Perhaps not.

 

:D

I had a 260e auto, never got above 28mpg even on a run from Essex to the Lakes n back at legal speeds.

      OK, maybe not entirely serious, but I clocked one round the corner from my house this morning and they look brilliant. Had been off my radar but small fuel efficient stylish estate and seem to be plenty of cheap ones about, presumably comfy and fun to drive in a french sort of way - what's not to like?
       
      1.4 petrol appeals with cheap tax/insurance/ulez friendly.
       
      I love my 205 but nine times out of ten the CR-V gets used for practicality reasons. One of these looks like being a bit more jolly and efficient, but equally practical...

      First my brother in law had a problem with his Volvo:
       
      http://autoshite.com/topic/34710-2007-volvo-v70-d5-24-automatic-sold-new-owner-updates/?fromsearch=1
       
      Then, earlier this week, someone broke into his house, found keys to his BMW and drove away in this:
       

       
      There’s no way of knowing whether the BMW will ever be found.
       
      BIL now urgently needs a reliable automatic estate car, MoTd and running, for up to £1k and located as close to High Wycombe as possible.
       
      Does anyone know of a suitable steed?

      Bit of an SOS here. I've got a couple of item's I've won on eBay in far flung locations and my work shedule has conspired to make collection difficult. I'd hoped to collect them on some upcoming cross country trip but unfortunately my employer has other ideas....
       
      They have the flexibility to stand up the workforce to work 6 day weeks and have also extended our weekday working hours. They are blaming Brexit and trying to push production volumes as high as they can before the leave date.
       
      I've got two collections outstanding and was wondering if theres anyone local who could collect on my behalf and either post onwards, or sit on them until I'm able to collect. Happy to cover any expenses. Petrol / Post / Beer Money.
       
      The Items are industrial lights, 
       
      The first Item is in Prestatyn - The Seller has said collection from Chester is also a possibility, they are 3 Fluorescent tube lights.
       
       
      The second Items is in Lewisham, SE14 6QD, South london. And is a pair of explosion proof lights [ PLAN IN PLACE ]
       
      If your able to help please pm me.
       
      Cheers
      Joe
