KIA Magentis or sale... cheap! Seems it's now a ROFFLE!

Recommended Posts

The time has come for me to start shedding some heaps. So the first to go is this 'wonderful' KIA. Magentis 2.7 V6 auto LS. It is  a top spec jobbie with one previous owner, history (alternated between KIA and Halfords!) 60.000 miles, air con (working) PAS, electric seats/windows/alarm/central locking/leather seats/parking sensors/alloy wheels.


It was in good order when I got it but I haven't loved it like I usually do so the interior in the back, while still good, is filthy with mud stains and dog hair, the front is fine. It has a scuff on the passenger side front bumper (not me) and a previous giffer repair, passenger side rear door is a slightly different shade (only visable in certain lights) and there a few chips on the rear bumper.


Most of the time it runs well, but, sometimes it will misfire and the EML flashes. Stop, turn it off and then back on and all is good once more, no idea what it is (injection I feel) as the only code that comes up is PO300 which is multiple misfires. Slight exhaust blow on one of the front flexies which makes it sound goooood! :)  It 'may' have had a cambelt at some tme, but maybe not, there's a reciept for the belt, but not one for fitting it, so no idea, cambelt roulette is great fun! It is worst if you let it tickover in traffic when it will start to miss, a decent code reader may actually tell you whats wrong with it!


Fuel consumption is.... dire! But I only do 2 miles at a time in it from cold so 14 - 16 mpg is not out of the way? It showed 35 on the motorway on the way home from buying it. It's MOT'd until October sometime and taxed oviously. Tyres are rubbish, back are good tread but the fronts are getting low and are old.


So, what do we reckon? £400 to a shiter?

I honestly have no idea what it's worth. I paid either £800 or £1200 for it a couple of years ago and I ripped myself off a bit as I paid for it before I even saw it. I'm a prick of the first order. They only sold 60 over 3 years of this model although the smaller engine and the diesel sold rather better, but it has the slight running problem and it needs fumigating inside (rear) and I can't be arsed.

Is there some sort of Devonian drug dealing going on in the background? The cricket playing Morris dancer marching past look like he's right off his face on the Gary Abletts he just scored off that woman in the tripper's hat on the bench.

Looks belting. Any milege in having your local hand car wash give it a cut price valet then asking for a bit more money locally?

I guess the EML may put people off though on gumtree or the like.


Seems a lot of car for the asking price, GLWTS.

£10.50 roffle nets you over £500 and represents STONKIN' value for a basically new car with a V6 engine m9!


Especially two for £20. I'd have two, for example. Even though it's in Torquay. And I'm definitely not.


I do have a death-knell effect on roffles though so would wait for several non-toxic people to also persuade. :-D

I would, but I can't be arsed! If someone else wants to organise it....


£7 a ticket sounds about right but surely, at £400 it's an effin bargain? It's even got about  a fivers worth of petrol in it, how much do you want for yur cash?




As an extra bonus, I'll even leave the mud and dog hair so you instantly become a property owner and can start your own weaving business!

      Choice of top boxes either the white old one or the massive modern one for Uber eats work.

      I have a Vespa PX. I love it. I commute daily on it.

      I don't have a bike license so I'm riding around on L plates which I'm finding frustrating given that I appear to better understand the rules of the road than 99% of other drivers. Or at least I know how to break them politely. Also I'd like to take a passenger from time to time.

      I'd like to take my bike test, direct access ideally, and I fully understand it's safety training as well, but £700? Ain't gonna happen. I'd like to do it myself on my Vespa, and given that it's a 125 and manual I could do restricted licence test on it couldn't I? NO! I hear you say! Why not? Because bureaucracy. How dare they take away my rights? You could probably fund the NHS with the money that they'd save by not ruining my life etc..

      So enter the LML.. A copy of the Vespa Made under license in India. It's identical in all but name and some suspect quality electrics. WCPGW? Because of modern regs, they've got a cat and hence a bit slower in standard form than the PX that they're based on, until you unleash an extra 10th of a horse by drilling a heart shape in the air filter. True story.

      So anyway, given that they're identical only slower, you couldn't possibly take your bike test on one could you? WRONG AGAIN! YOU CAN!! Apparently it's hard to hit the 31mph required for the MOD 1 test, but I think the naysayers aren't trying hard enough. WCPGW?

      ​So enter an ad on an owners forum. LML, 2 stroke (essential), 2000km, 2 years old, "broken right indicator". £MEGA BARG. I bought it about 2 months ago. Unseen obvs. The only problem is that it's 120 miles away. Several idiots on shiply claimed that they could collect it for reasonable money before changing their minds on time/date/ location. The vendor is a gent, a minister no less, and has been incredibly patient. However as God's birthday is approaching he was becoming less flexible making it harder to co-ordinate with a courier. Van hire seemed expensive and something about him told me that his arms to would be too weak to help me lift it in to a van.

      FUCK IT! Train booked. I"M GONNA RIDE IT HOME. IN DECEMBER. Forecast says rain all day tomorrow. WCPGW??

      From a recent haul. This first lot 50p each + postage. More to come.

      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.....
