99 Passat Estate AFN 1.9TDi £800

Recommended Posts

Family. Politics

 

The 2 don't mix. As stated earlier father Sims agreed to purchase this but gave me the ebay WINRAR bidder treatment...

 

*Sigh*

 

Anyway. This fine steed NEEDS a loving home. I had intended it to be mine forever, however, the chance to own a true bucket list car for me was too good to resist. So with regret this is for sale. In dark blue, 5 speed manual 110bhp AFN flavour. No sensitive PD stuff, good old durable AFN

 

112k, FSH, and runs beautifully. A testament to Burnsides grandfather to whom it belonged, it has been maintained to within an inch of it's life. No rust, no major dings, no worries.

 

Has had very recent: cambelt/waterpump, aux belts, 4 new Goodyear tyres/alignment, and a load of other stuff.

 

In my ownership I've done a few things to freshen it up. Demisted headlamps, new wiper arms, dealer plates, EGR blanked and removed, new gear gaitor, and JUST TODAY new brake fluid reservoir and brake fluid (common problem, reservoir cracks open due to positioning). Has 2 keys (if you're turned on by that) and a HBOL. Also adjusted clutch and drives bang on.

 

I am selling it a little more than I paid, but still less what it owes me. I have a habit of making losses

 

No clunks, no smoking no nothing. This car will see you through. I very much doubt you could find one as smooth and well cared for.

 

Based in Cradley (West Midlands)

 

Will get pictures up when I get it back off my mechanic later for the brake fluid reservoir job.

These ace cracking motors.

 

I did about 60/80k in a saloon one of these exact same engine. They do 50mpg easily and cruise really well if I remember 90 is under 3000rpm and there dead quiet. Mine also needed nothing bar oil changes and some discs and pads. I sold it with 190k on and its till going strong years later.

Yes plenty. Load cover removes and seats fold down if you need even more space to party!

Hey Mo, shame your having to sell so soon. [ Look's Great with the Genuine VW Wheel trims btw ]

 

As Mo mentioned this was my Grandads Car for over 15 years till ill health forced us to sell. It's a great car that got plenty of faithful service left. I really hope it goes to a good home and I honestly don't think you could find a better Diesel Estate for the money.

I've had a lot of interest..please bear with me. I am at the moment, embroiled in a lot personally and work is hectic and extremely intrusive so I am struggling to be free.

 

Sincerest apologies to those to whom I have been slow to reply.

Me middle name sir, some people know me by that

S'ok you're the original though I'd never usurp you

Lol :lol:

 

What's it stand for? Morris? Maurice? Seeing as you're so close (I'm usually found in Cradley for various reasons) I'm sure I'll find out soon.

Due to serious family matters, this sale had to be cancelled as I didn't know when things would get better, save buyers being waiting forever. This is for sale, no swaps I'm afraid as despite missing out on a bucket list car, Ghosty's seemed to pop up as if it was more than mere coincidence. It's way cooler than the Carina (sorry TS!). As a caveat I have offered Jon first refusal as he did submit payment last time round. So pending that, it's available.

      Short version of a long thread
       
      Bought Nov 17 with a blown engine
      Put new engine in that was worse than the old one
      Put another 70,000 mile engine in out of a 330D that I saw running this time
       
      It's got loads of history inc recon gearbox and suspension done
       
      Drives ok , no warning lights on , 2 keys, one needs a battery , 12 months mot, everything works inc AC
       
      Needs the blower direction box sorting , it's on your feet, could be 5 minutes , could be 30 mi utes then theres a whoosh as something frees off and it's all working normally
      I had a Google and it's something to do with vents, the box goes misshapen, I read a screw in the right place pulls it back into shape
       
      Inner rear arches behind the back doors need welding , heated screen only demists the passenger side
       
      It'll come with the original 18" wheels and wheel nuts as well as the 19" that are on it, but the 18" tyres are close to the limit
       
      Qualifies for modern classic insurance , adrian flux quoted me under £200 TPFT , I went with A plan at £300 fully comp
       
      I haven't advertised it anywhere else yet
       
      Original post below
       
      I've been looking at Range Rovers for a
      few weeks , in the past as I have a very competent/cheap mechanic I've bought a few projects that have worked out Ok but not a RR
       
      I've found one with an engine problem, not too far away guy wants shot of it so he'll take £1000 for it , it's a 2003 HSE with 150k on the clock, MOT history looks very good, it's tested until next april and he said it's had gearbox work in the last 6 months
       
      It's a really bad idea isn't it ,put me off with tales of woe, I'm really tempted to go and see it and risk divorce
    • By Tigerfox
      I know this is not the usual car to see on here but Tigerfox Jr has a baby on the way and he is discovering how expensive they are.
       
      It is a 2003 231 version with the 6 speed gearbox and has only done 34k. I looked at loads before finding this one and it is very nice condition
       
      Starts instantly, recent new battery and uses fuel at a alarming rate ! 
       
      Mot until July and would expect it to pass as it has only done 500 miles since the last one
       
      I have more pictures and it is advertised elsewhere for £1795 and a forum discount applies so £1675,  NOW £1500
       
      Leather interior, air con, working electric and heated seats, bose radio/cd
       
      PM me if you want more photos or contact details.
       
      Car is in South Leicestershire

      Brief background to this:

      I swapped my Jaguar for this car 2 and a half weeks ago as I was desperate to scratch my v8 itch, a client who works in my office bought it last September as a winter hack from his father in law. He was always complimentary towards the jag, I've always fancied a V8, so when he told me he was selling it I asked if he fancied a swapz and he was up for it!

      Unfortunately it's came at the wrong time for me, as my hours at work have halved recently and I really need something with economies as I'm applying for jobs with a commute longer than my current 8 miles a day. A petrol V8 unfortunately won't be suitable.

      So to the car, it's absolutely brilliant tbh. Absolutely huge inside, comfortable ride, sits at just under 2k revs at 70 and goes like a fucking rocket with the foot down. 300bhp from the V8 engine. It's the ultimate barge. Gearboxes are a known issue with these cars, this one is smooth AF. selects every gear perfectly and goes through them smoothly when progressing. It has 103,000 miles on the clock, the car has full service history until 92,000 (mostly dealer) which was in 2009, it's barely moved in the past ten years,a couple of hundred miles between MOT'S each year. It was put back into service last summer, there's receipts in the glovey for an oil and filter change and an engine terraclean. Aluminium body on these cars as well so no rust, it scrubs up very well. 2 remote fobs and a spare 3rd key. Has a parrot Bluetooth thingy which is nearly new, it's been properly fitted, I'll leave it in there. Private plate with comedy RFL lettering included.

      That's the good bits, so what about the bad?

      There is a judder when braking above 35/40 mph. Brakes work well but can feel a pulse under the pedal. Will need looked at.

      Rear brake light warning light on,there is a light out on the drivers side, will get this replaced

      This car has previously had a coolant leak from the reservoir bottle and also one of the hoses, the previous owner repaired it prior to me buying it which cost £££ I believe, as access isnt great in the engine bay. It hasn't leaked since. It used to leave a few drips overnight on the ground, but has been dry the last couple of weeks.

      Tires have decent tread but have two different brands on the front and rear,which is a bugbear of mine.

      Aircon needs a regas m9.

      And that's it really. Car is MOT'd until July, and is located in Glasgow. £1750. I know it's not the usual AutoShite giveaway price but it's a beast of a machine. And I need to recoup my jaaaaaag money. A quick glance on autotrader has rough 3.7's and non quattro 2.8's for over 2k. Any questions please fire away. Cheers

      So for various reasons, mainly money and hopefully, impending engagement/wedding (sshhhh) this is deffo for sale, with a discount for shiters.
       
      Currently, I am having the alternator replaced, as it basically died yesterday. I've sourced a good quality second hand one from a breaker with some warranty, and it's been checked and proven to work perfectly. It arrives in a couple of days, and I am paying to have it fitted. So the car is currently awaiting this in the garage.
       
      I've already got an alternative vehicle sourced and don't need any PX's, just a straightforward sale. This was purchased from Colc of this very parish, and has been fantastic, alternator issue aside!
       
      So..
       
      -130k miles, FSH - stamped book, countless receipts and paperwork, totalling thousands of pounds..mechanically absolutely brilliant. Recent stuff like turbo and other bits, engine is sweeter than your proverbial nut
       
      -Full leather with heated seats, Sat Nav, Cruise Control, dual zone climate control..all working perfectly!
       
      -recent full service by me approx 2k miles ago involving oil/oil filter, pollen, air..fuel filter included but I ran out of time and haven't actually had time to sit and do it since
       
      -rust free! underneath it is fabulous. Seems to have had a very recent new exhaust system too.
       
      -MOT till 19th November 2019!
       
      No knocks/bangs/ghosts/borrowers/cockroaches. It really does drive brilliantly. Comes with 3 keys, 4 matching Michelin Cross Climate tyres. Only negatives are it has a ding to the rear tailgate, and theres a small patch of paint that flaked off on the rear bumper thanks to aggressive car wash peoples.
       
      I'm located in Quinton, Birmingham.

      Just arrived today, on my breif test drive it seemed all good, no issues with engine/ box etc, no warning lights on. Nice inside with all the buttons i tried working. Scabby bits a plenty as is to be expected from such a premium brand.......   WARNING !  might cause you to turn into a tediously dull Golf driver and start quoting mpg figures.  Plenty room in the glovebox to leave your personality before you exit the vehicle and mix with others...…
