2001/51 plate BMW 318i - we have a winner!

Recommended Posts

Here is the offending pipe, looks like chewed licorice allsort combined with dead sea slug. Yuck is the mildest way of describing it. I think we found the problem!

The end of the pipe slug allsort is still attached to the old CCV. Ewwwww.

Blue silicon hoses are for winnahs, especially smoll silicone hoses.

Much nicer photographs. These were taken when I had just dusted the car off and before it was fixed.

 

We know what that is....

The interior needs a good vacuuming and a bit more of a valet after that on the carpets, nothing significant at all, just dusty and so on.

 

The passenger front door panel needs a beige speaker cover obtaining and fitting. There is some wear on the centre arm rest but a bloke on fb has one for sale much cheep. There are marks and scuffs on the door cards that might not be visible on the photos.

 

The bodywork is bloody lovely and a good wash and polish will make it gorgeous. 

 

There is a slight crease on the rear O/S wheel arch but it certainly isn't horrible.

The boot area is nice and clean, the load area cover is in great order and there is a clip on mesh thing in place. 

 

There is a full tool kit and the locking wheel nut is present and correct.

Worth every second of the wait for full pictures, it looks an absolute peach! Gorgeous interior too!

 

There’s a very good MOT place in Chelmsford, Universal Tyres, fair and friendly and lots of old shite often parked outside.

 

Will take a random please!

I have a tentative sniff of a cash buyer, just waiting to hear back from that person who shall remain unknown until they wish to be known........

 

If this doesn't come to pass then the roffle will swing in to action :)

Anyway, what is this mythical 'grand' you speak of?

 

I am unfamiliar with the monetary concept of such an amount. I think I may have to go and lie down as I feel faint and weak at the mere thought of such a concept. 

 

Mo, if I could gift it to you mate I would.

      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.....

      Going to roffle for a fiver a ticket, two for £8, 3 for £11
      In good working order apart from the head gasket. 
      Put the ventilated header tank cap on, take it easy and bring spare water and you will be able to drive it home. 
       
      It doesn't overheat, just pressure in the cooling system. Cylinder compression is good.

      This has been dragging with the end tantalisingly in sight, so inspired by the worthy @SRi05 I'll pop it in here and see if anyone who doesn't visit 'Shite For Sale' is interested...
       
      Quoting now...
       
      After having recently gone through the fun* of selling a car on eBay, I thought I'd try my luck on here. I only bought this a couple of weeks ago on a whim, thinking it would be ideal for shooting down to France with the wife and the dog to visit the in-laws, but the wife has taken against it HARD due to the lack of air-con (she's not worried about us - it's the dog!). So it has to go.
      Bad bits first, as is AS tradition. The A/C really is gone. No amount of re-gassing will fix this! A few patches of rust here and there - none look bad enough for welding. A bit of rust converter and bondo and job jobbed was my plan. Laquer is starting to peel in a few places. The remote central locking doesn't always unlock the passenger side door (although it does always seem to lock it, which is odd). Tailgate has a decent dent in it. Nothing to do with me, it came free with the car. Tailgate still works fine, though.
      Good bits. Maybe it has been too long since I was last in a rear-wheel drive, but it feels to me like it pulls away from the line very nicely. The six-speed box feels nice and precise, and lets you trundle along at 70mph with the engine only doing about two and a half thousand revs (not had it long enough to really measure fuel efficiency). MOT until Feb and taxed to get you home.
      Located in Ipswich. I was thinking £9 per ticket, or two for £16, three for £21. Any takers?
       
      PRICE DROP !!!!
      £8 for one, £14 for two, £19 for three. Buy Buy Buy!!!!

      Well after almost 11 years it time to part ways with my Cavalier as recent changes mean I'm needing a estate car now. 
      It's in tidy condition for it age and years but is no show car, though saying that I get plenty of nice comments off people about it which is nice!  Will be really sad to see it go as it's been a fantastic car to me and has always been a dependable friend. Holidays, house moves, days out, road trips buying tat or being on family taxi duty. It does it all without fuss. 
      I have folders full of various receipts and bills for work carried out over the years and have got various spares mainly used that I can include if wanted.  I also have a compete spare 1.8 engine with 74,000 miles available too. 
      Mileage is 204,000 but I did replace the engine with a secondhand unit about a year after first buying it with similar miles due to a oil pressure fault.  Though I've seen these Cavaliers with over  250,000+ miles and I have no issues with driving this car anywhere as these are hardy things. 
      I've always serviced the car each year and always use a quality 15w40 oil.   In recent years it had all new shocks/ front springs and top mounts. Front Brakes and had various other parts replaced as needed to keep it ticking over. 
      Has Pas, leccy front windows and central locking. Also has working Towbar see pic bellow. 
      There so much more I can say but I'd be here all night!
      Currently awaiting some Mot repairs to sort out emissions [ replace front downpipe ] and some minor welding to the rear floor pan . It should be ready for me to collect by Friday.  Any questions just ask away. Will add some pictures over the weekend once I've got the Car back. Still Insured till the end of May and Taxed etc.
