OMeGa roffle! Now collected!

Recommended Posts

Dearest Roffleteers!

Roll up, roll up!

If you're reeling from your failure to win the Mystery Roffle, fear not! There is no mystery here...

What you see is what you get! But you might get something else!

Eh? What? Why? Read on...

1999 Vxl OMeGa 2.5 V6

(petrol flava)

7cvfcj7.jpg

This fine, velour-equipped beauty has traversed scarcely one hundred thousand of the Queen's miles. And it has Her Majesty's Ministry's approval for continued usage until at least September!

It can be yours for a stake of just £6.50. Or £12.50 for two!

Collection is from the historic, slightly crusty and - more importantly - centrally located city of Coventry. The best place from which to collect a roffle win, as you can get here from literally anywhere* in the world. Even Wales.

But what of this CA$HBACK option?

Well, dear roffleistas... I will be offering the winning roffler the unique opportunity to take away an alternative prize and receive ONE HUNDRED POUNDS CA$H BACK!

Yes, that's right! You could be paid £93.50 to take away literally an entire car!

But what is the car? Again, there is no mystery!

1987 Saab 900 Turbo


(b0rked flava)

More details of this amazing (but non-functioning) vehicle can be found in my original For Sale thread.

If you live inside this circle, I will even deliver it FOR FREE (may be a couple of week's lead-time for this).

Delivery outside the circle also possible, but may affect the level of cashback offered.

For more details and photos of both cars please visit THIS THREAD.

(Usual roffle rules and procedures apply. Please do not roffle more than you can afford to lose.)

Have a smashing day.

*except N. Korea.

Agreed - old-style roffles appear to be somewhat passé: this is turning into Casino AutoShite for potential great gains and glory...

But, as with Mr. TADTS, ferries to Norn Iron are still slightly prohibitive, sadly... can't wait until this much-mooted bridge to Scotland happens (sometime next century, probably).

Oh yeah? Roffling a Vauxhall and accidentally* including Chester just within free delivery range? Nice try M8, you ain’t having me on that one.

I meant for only the Saab option to qualify for free delivery (because it doesn't drive)...  But, fuck it, if tickets sell out and everyone pays up, for a half-decent coffee and a bag of wine gums, I'll deliver the Omega as well (within the circle).

Ah, a pre-facelift OMGa. That means it'll have actual heater control dials and not the wanky electronic climate control, correct? I also have previous experience of driving an OMGa from Northampton back to Aberdeen, so Coventry is nae bother!

 

A random please.

In a bizarre twist I have just obtained, in a fiendishly complex deal, a 2.5 V6 Omega this very evening, beautiful driving cars in V6 flava .

 

I may enter the roffle but it would be certain to die in my custody given I break them for pocket money, if this beast is in need of any bit's I can sort you out

Correct, Sir.  Heater is u/s, mind you, but who cares?  It's summer.  A new heater bypass valve is included in the roffle.

This is an easy one. His "circle of delivery" knocks on the door to Liverpool, overnight Birkenhead to Belfast and on down the road.....

 

I reckon flights fuel and ferry all doable for under £200 if you are canny.

 

Either car would be mega bargain at that point..

 

Hmm

I'll be brutally honest, I can't even see the cars. The pictures don't load on these computers and I have no other way of using the internet for a good couple of weeks. Can someone confirm they have all four wheels? :P

The Omega is pictured at a rakish angle and glistening with either Angels tears or rain, it's a lovely dark blue with what look like 15" 5 spoke alloys .

The Saab also has wheels , looks a little careworn but not in anyway offensive.

 

In fact I'm so impressed I'd like 2 randoms please and would advise you to do the same, not having pictures didn't used to stop us buying cars from Exchange and Mart or Motoring News, did it? ( although a few hundred wasted miles looking at mis described scrap was quite common)

Some of these comments have me worried that I've made things unclear...

 

This is NOT a 2 for 1 roffle.  The 'prize' is the Omega OR the Saab (+cash).

 

Winner gets to choose which they take away.  You can wait until you've seen both in the flesh if you want.

Ahhh. Yes, many have misunderstood this, myself included. Re-reading it now, you do say it but it could perhaps have been emphasised more. Still a good deal though. No tickets for me this time, no space...

      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...…
