Audi A3 1.8 petrol 1999 12 months MOT roffle £7; 2 tickets for £12

Recommended Posts

As per title really, this had a shagged bush which is now fixed. 137k on the clock, fairly good condition except drivers rear arch which is bubbly but paint unbroken. A few nifty Audi features like the windows that wind back up from the outside on the key. It's pretty presentable, Adrian Flux do cheaper Audi insurance. For the moon on a stick types, no warranty given or implied!
Happy to listen to offers. Located in Shipley West Yorkshire

The nifty audi features like the one you mentioned can be programmed on/off with anyone with the vagcom cable too. Theres usually a few relating to dial sweep upon startup, antihijack locking and the like. Good solid cars bu the 1.8 can be abit thirsty, but great build quality for that money.

 

where is this?

Alright you 'orrible lot, lets have a roffle instead! Where else can you win a car with 12 months ticket and a set of olympic rings on the front for just £7 a try or £12 for 2 tries?

 

ETA that is to say that if anyone turns up with £360 cash for this car, you can drive off into the sunset never to be seen again

This isn't eBay. If you are selling a car on here then there is an implied warranty that goes with it - that's the AS way.

 

I presume you're not being more than semi serious?

Nice idea, but that's rather kafkaesque to be fair - where do these rules exist and when did the membership vote them into being? 

It's a public forum and I stated my terms of sale. Surely that is all that matters?

And who would offer any sort of guarantee on a 20 year old car going for £360 - seems to me that if you do try and enforce this unwritten rule, nobody will sell or roffle anything on here?

I wasn't being flippant.

 

It's not a public forum - you have to sign up to become a member. As part of that club, there is a convention that we treat each other fairly including when selling cars - listing faults clearly and being honest about state of the car.

 

Most of us are buying cars blind and at a distance, which works on AS because of this convention.

 

It costs zero to sell on here instead the cost is complying with the convention. If you are selling a car on AS there is an implicit understanding that you agree to this.

 

If it is a struggle to follow this then there are always other ways to sell cars that don't include this site.

I have sold a couple of cars on here, the Morris Minor went to 17Coffees and after he agreed to purchase it I kept if for two weeks to sort out some issues that came about after the advert went up.

 

I treat selling a car on here the same as selling to family (I like my family) and am gutted when I find out something has gone wrong with them.

 

This is the reason the Alfa 156 of many went to the bridge.

I don't have any quarrel with that. I have stated very clearly what any of the known problems with cars I have sold on here are to the buyer. All I am saying is that I do not guarantee no faults will then develop because old car.

You obtain a car for £7 or some multiple by roffle or you buy for £360 outright, you have to keep your expectations in check. Shirley all the AS family understands that?

Agree expectations are of a car of that cost.

 

But there is a basic implicit AS warranty that applies which means all faults should be disclosed (and of course I am not talking about stuff into the future, unless mystic meg) and car described honestly.So saying there isn't one is a bit disingenuous - which is my only point.

 

Anyway will leave this to a Roffle now.

      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
      Roffling at £8.50 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.

      1998 Mercedes C200 Elegance
      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.






    • By TheDoctor
      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...
