Laguna I RT Sport - 12 months MoT - Won and Sold

Recommended Posts

I'm not expecting much interest in this, but I've got my eye on something else so could do with the gooner gone.

 

I'll get the negs out of the way. The heater is rubbish in very cold weather, the clutch is heavy, slight blow on the back box, and the interior still smells a bit of rubber, despite leaving a Neutradol in there for a week (I think cheap mats were the culprit, now binned).

 

Good points are all the electrics work bar the radio (code required no doubt), tyres are decent (Michelins on the rear, quality* Arrowspeeds on the front), 12 months MoT (valid until 8th January 2020), tidy and comfortable interior, and generally good condition outside just with the usual car park dings. Nice colour too.

 

Mileage is 108,900 and it hasn't done many miles over the past few years being giffer owned. 2 litre 8 valve pez engine starts and drives very well and is quiet on a run. Comfortable ride with no untoward suspension noises, although it might need tracking up as I think there's a slight pull to the left. Front brake pads look new, and I fettled the rears as the NS was binding quite badly and making a noise. I haven't driven it for two weeks which probably speaks volumes. It's a good car but living in London, a heavy clutch makes me lose interest pretty quickly, what with all the stop start traffic.

The hard clutch is a real worry.

Rob is an absolute prince among men and as such generally undersells his cars. I would wager, nay guarantee, that the clutch is no heavier than any other Laguna. I recall he described his old Astra diesel similarly and I noticed nothing untoward when I delivered it up to our Chester based Vauxhall apologist. Also, he lives in the midst of a densely populated conurbation and therefore has to perform more clutch wrestling than most.

I'm yet to drive a French car with a light clutch, let alone a Laguna, so I'm tempted to say TADTS. It's not leg snappingly awful, and as Bradley Bucketfroome points out I can be a tad fussy about them...comes from driving in London I suppose. Bader 'boxes FTW!

Great. Make it two fandoms then :)

^^I'll do my best FP.  No promises mind...

 

Do I get a discount for two?

 

I could do with the money on this one TBH, but if ticket sales slow up (very likely considering what it is) discounts might be possible.

If the winner doesn't want to go into London, I can assist with a rendezvous with them, as long as it's insured and I get (heavily discounted) train fare back.

 

 

(If this is okay with Rob)

Aye, cool. I'll get you to deliver it halfway if I win, yeah?

That's fine with me, thanks very much bramz.

 

Location wise I'm in Beckenham which is 20 minutes south from Victoria or Charing Cross, and 40ish minutes from J7 of the M25.  Gatwick Express to East Croydon is another option, should the lucky* winner wish to fly down.  Depending on the time I'm happy to collect from East Croydon, or the tram is a 20 minute journey.

      I’m not sure if there’d be much interest in a roffle for a topless mills o’matic swede at this time of year but before I stick it down at the barn for winter, I thought I’d mention it on here...
      Its a 2006 9-3 1.8t with just under 90k miles and a good service history. It has been Mrs NMs summer chariot of choice but has now been stood down by a Berlingo diesel...the backup plan is to park it up over winter before prepping it up for sale in the spring where it would get advertised for its market value but due to the impending arrival of another toy, if someone on here wants to win it for the frankly ludicrous sum of £12.00, then step right up!!
      Good bits...
      All electrics, roof etc in good order, decent tires all round, plenty of MOT, working air con, polishes up nicely, will come with new discs and pads on the front.
      Not so good bits...
      Silly tax bracket so £48 a month to tax, occasional lambda fault which pops on EML....will reset and stay off for a month or two, slight bit of pogweasleing on the n/s front bumper where it’s had a smart repair in the past.
      Only got a few pictures to hand at the minute but if there’s any interest, I’ll stick some more up in the next day or so.
      Roffle tickets as it is are £12 each or two for £20 and the car is located near Burnley, Lancashire.
      Form an orderly queue.... 🙂

      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!!!!
