Automatic Estate Car near Bucks up to £1k - URGENT

Recommended Posts

First my brother in law had a problem with his Volvo:

Then, earlier this week, someone broke into his house, found keys to his BMW and drove away in this:

There’s no way of knowing whether the BMW will ever be found.

 

BIL now urgently needs a reliable automatic estate car, MoTd and running, for up to £1k and located as close to High Wycombe as possible.

 

Does anyone know of a suitable steed?

Furkenell, that is some serious bad luck for your BIL. First his Volvo shits itself and then some Scroats have it away with his Beemer.

 

If I were your BIL I would go any buy a lottery ticket cos luck has gotta change surely

 

Does it have to be an estate ?

Oddly enough BIL bought a Euromillions lotto ticket on Friday and won £6. Bonus.

 

Yes, it must be an estate.

I suspect you have checked the usuals but....

 

Appreciate the mileage is a little on the high side but in my experience when I have been in the shit and needed a dead reliable steed the PD130 VAG engines have never let me down....This ones not a million miles away in Aylesbury - knock him down to £600. Aside from the one below,  I would strongly suggest lapping up a B5.5 PD130. £700 quid would probably get you highline too with leathers in an EBay auction....

This might also be quite a good candidate. Not overly expensive now and still quite classy in my opinion. Wear their age quite well - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Volvo-V40-T4-turbo-200bhp/264300484263?hash=item3d898956a7:g:xYQAAOSw~2BcxHUC

      This is a Wanted thread, but having no money I'm offering a swop.  Key for key, no cash involved.
       
      I want a Bedford CF.  It's over 30 years since my first one and I think well past time I repeated the experience.  Steel front rather than the later plastic grille; VX slant-four petrol engine rather than the Opel type, and absolutely NO DIESELS; preferably a plain van body rather than a camper or truck.  Oh and it needs to be legal and running fairly reliably.  Not like I'm asking for much!
       
      I'm offering the Giffer Rover.  It does have its own thread: http://autoshite.com/topic/28899-collection-of-yet-another-rover-accomplished/  I bought it blind off ebay last summer and it's a lovely car.  MoT is due in March but this is how confident I am: I'll put a new one on it if a suitable CF appears before then.  If the CF comes later, well the Rover will have a new ticket anyway.  It's a 2.0 auto with 42,000 miles up, and drives just as you would expect.
       
      If the van comes from further than about 150 miles from me I would very much appreciate being able to meet at some suitable common point to do the handover.  Motorway service areas or supermarkets with integrated cafes would be ideal.

      OK, maybe not entirely serious, but I clocked one round the corner from my house this morning and they look brilliant. Had been off my radar but small fuel efficient stylish estate and seem to be plenty of cheap ones about, presumably comfy and fun to drive in a french sort of way - what's not to like?

      I love my 205 but nine times out of ten the CR-V gets used for practicality reasons. One of these looks like being a bit more jolly and efficient, but equally practical...
