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.

      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 scratchy plastics but nothing broken - all functional


      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

      Where is it? Well, you can smell the gunsmoke of Luton from here. M1 jns 9, 10, 11 will get you near. Or use the A5 and don't venture near that seething metropolis.

      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...
