Citroen ZX 1.9d in Reading....ROFFLING!!....RAFFLE DRAWN - WATCH VIDEO FOR VERDICT!! :)

Recommended Posts

 

Afternoon all,

 

Well, I shall start by saying that over the past few months things have somewhat changed and I now find myself incredibly short of time (yes have been meaning to sit down and write this in this thread for the past two weeks but only now have I had the chance), with that said, I'm sure many would agree, come Sunday I am absolutely shattered and what little energy I do have I have to spend with my two daughters.

 

So (and I'm sure you know whats coming next) I have decided to move the ZX on. I know I know its a shame and this car was for me supposed to be a mini-project (project in the sense that I would mop the exterior and bring that back to life, just generally clean everything and then keep on top of maintenance) so some would disagree the use of the word 'project' is maybe a little strong!

 

Anyway, I bought her with no MOT and she needed very little to get her through an MOT. Some may remember me travelling all the way up to Nottingham to collect her on the back of my truck. I have probably added 200/300 miles to her?? She drives spot on, sits at 70mph fine and needless to say is hideously fuel efficient sporting the legendary XUD engine and Bosch pump - just in the last week I have replaced the fuel filter.

 

MOT - 19th Feb 2019 and I have 4x Keys for the old girl too

 

When I collected her I was genuinely astounded to the degree the meticulous maintenance had been recorded with spreadsheets made to record every time the car had ever had anything right down to the replacement of a light bulb! I have all this printed out along with reams and reams of receipts from back over the years, and a couple of log books (the old blue sort too I believe) Lots and lots of paperwork to go with it, upon lifting the bonnet, various areas of the engine have been written on recording the mileage at which it has also been changed) The cambelt too was replaced approx 10k miles ago.

 

She sports the typically french yellow headlight bulbs too. Have a spare set of normals too for you should you want them.

 

So a real shame (for me anyway) but she will just sit otherwise and that won't do her any good so wants someone who is going to use her really.

 

Am in Reading (J12 M4) and delivery is possible...

 

Sod it....going straight for the ROFFLE.....though if you do want it...Shitters price £395.....Anywhere else...£495 (yes that's £100 compensation for all those times the Gumtree, Facebook and EBay lot and mess me about)

 

Hit me with your numbers!.....

The sticker is one I put on when I had the car. It's a pisstake on drinking and driving. "5 to drive." The gears on sticker are pints of beer

From Mitchell and Webb I think

I good to see interest. I had it for sale on here for ages without a sniff. I loved that car I was genuinely sad to see it go.

# 27 please

Ooof I'd better have one. 22 please if still available otherwise a random.

 

I'm off out of the country for 5 days then will be busy next Saturday. In theory I should be able to keep up there what with EU roaming being free, and should get email notifications if I get a PM, in practice there's a small chance I'll miss it. If the roffle is sold out for Saturday and for some reason I haven't paid by then, I definitely will pay you for it when things are back to normal. Obviously I can't demand that you give me 'credit' like that and I'll have no hard feelings if you flog the ticket to someone else but please be assured that I'm good for it. Should be able to pay in time anyway, just saying like :) .

      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.

      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...

      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
      Thinking roffling at Tenner 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.
