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

Recommended Posts

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.

Actually, after lubing the clutch pedal mechanism it feels marginally better. I also had stout boots on today which probably helped, as opposed to the thin soled skimpy loafers I wore on collection day.

 

Have an engine shot. The battery is new.

12 years separate these two.

Turns out I still had Google on avoid motorway settings after a bit of shady movement of vehicles... it's only 7hrs 17mins.

Yet it still took you up the A1(M) ;-)

I have a suspicion this will be impossible to insure at a sensible price for me but sod it, a random please.

 

I was paying about £220 fully comp for mine with Admiral; obviously your circumstances may vary but it was one of my cheaper chariots to insure.

On the plus side, it says you can walk it in 6 days. :shock:

I think it would be fine if I had a second policy with some NCB, I'm paying £300 for my V6, but...

 

(out of interest, tried Admiral, £650)

I've got it on my multi-car classic policy as it fits the 20 year criteria, but as we all know it can be a bit random depending on which company you choose.

That is lovely.

I know I'm trying to sell it, but actually it is. Drives and rides much better than my Cavalier, but for some reason it leaves me feeling a bit meh. Could be the fact it has no vices, as perversely I tend to prefer cars with a few foibles. Although the rear NS brake shoe is still a bit grindy, so it's not totally fault free.

I could be shooting myself in the foot here, but seeing as I've got skattrd's Impreza incoming I'm going to set Saturday as the draw date for this.  Hopefully that might stimulate ticket sales.  Either that or I'll end up making yet another loss on a car, we'll see...!

 

I'll send out PMs this evening.

I had a 1.8 flavour as my third first car, it was very capable, and I used it to move most of our possessions from Brum to the South Coast. Drove exactly the same loaded to the brim with heavy stuff as it did otherwise. Only FTPs it ever had were related to me leaving the lights on and flattening the battery (multiple times - the bonger was broken).

      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. 
      MOT April 2020

      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!!!!
