I’ll have a random for my old Cav owning times sake.

It’s a long time since I felt the tactile knurled wheel that controls a whole four fan speeds.

Been a long time since i had to replace one of the fuckers as well! If theres a ticket left by friday im having it!

Yes, I've changed that one and it's no picnic is it! Pretty sure I've brought another switch complete with the whole assembly used as a spare somewhere too. The fan resistor is usually the more common fail thankfully as it's easier to change.

A cracking looking cavalier. If I didn’t already have one and I wasn't overstocked with cars here I think I would. Whoever wins it will get a good car. 

Thank's, if I could afford to keep two cars I honestly wouldn't sell it myself. Hopefully it goes to a good home on AS and maybe I can even buy it back at some point?

Which part of the west kids are you residing too? Cheers

Hi bub will add your roffle numbers along with Ohdearme and Matty later. 

I'm in Aldridge, closer to the Lichfield A5 side of it mate.  Or could possible see it etc at my Dads house in Measham, DE12 if that easier? I've renewed the insurance on Monday for now too as our Scudo van has suffered a fail. So I'm still using the Cav at the minute till it hopefully sorted.

I'll take a look at your PM shortly too, Cheers.

Im living on me nerves here. Is it sold, is the raffle still on? People need to know!!

Sorry people been distracted by my Van having a ftp! 

The Roffle / Sale is still active, I've just not pushed it as;

( 1) I've insured the Cav again for now to potter around in.

(2) Van is broken as above so this is my only wheels at the moment.

(3) I still love this car and I questioning my sanity in selling it! 

It clicked over to 205,000 yesterday too. So treated it to a wash and gave it a quick once over with some wax and blacked up the plastic trim.

Hi lamgroot, yes I still have the Cavalier available but hadn't pushed it's sale with the Van playing up etc as above. But I've just brought another car, so I had been thinking of bumping this thread back up so good timing ! 

Just drop me a message or pm when your ready. 

Cheers.

Sorry to say the "mate of a mate" never turned up and has disappeared off the radar, so I haven't sold my pickup.

No problem lamgroot, and appreciate the quick reply back.

I'm sure your have no trouble selling it, as finding a decent 2wd pickup of any kind is no easy task. Which my Dad found out a few years back when he tried to buy one. Ended up with a Ford Connect Van instead.

I’ll have a random anyway, just in case I figure out what’s going on.

Numbers 52 and 53 please. 

The Cavalier still For Sale at £425. So if everyone still up for restarting a Roffle then it's on! 

Also if the previous people who have asked for a Roffle number still want there's just message up on here. 

I'll get on the laptop tonight and draw up the list. Cheers all.

I genuinely cannot understand why this hasn’t sold. It’s a working tidy car with a nearly full test for the price of a weekend in a ghastly caravan in Skegness. 

Thank's I guess me not pushing it with the Van fiasco hasn't helped in fairness, but part of me glad though as I still enjoy having it around. 

It even came to the rescue (again) after my Brothers Ford Focus broke down last weekend. Towing him home after a thankfully minor ftp as it turned out.

A little later than planned tonight, but I've added a updated roffle list below. Which for now includes everyone who previously asked for a roffle ticket.

If anyone want's to drop out, I'll amend the list so people can see if any numbers become available again as we go.

Though the Cavalier is still available for a straight Sale at £425.

I'll refit the original grill and amber side indicators prior to collection too.

No problem aldo135, I'll add you to the Roffle list!

Apologies, I'd forgotten about this and circumstances have changed somewhat.

Not got any spare time for additional cars, so going to have to withdraw from roffle.

Apologies again

Thank's for letting us know and no need to apologize. Hope your ok though.

Have had some interest by a AS member last week, but for the meantime the Roffle will still contuine unless a outright Sale is agreed before it's sold out.

An to get the Roffle going again, Tickets are now only £7.50.

      I bought this as a stopgap, its purpose has been filled, and now I need something more economical.
      Its a 2000 Mazda 323F, with a 1.8 petrol engine and auto box (4 speed with lock out in top). Its in decent enough condition, looks tidy, starts, runs and drives with no major issues, decent amount of poke when needed. MoT is till November.  Interior is very tidy and shows little wear. Leccy windows, mirrors, sunroof which all work, AC which does not. The downsides are there are 3 small chips in the windscreen, all less than 10mm. And it could do with a tyre changing on the front as its cracked with age.

      More photos when its stops raining. Oh, and economy-wise it averages around 33mpg with mixed driving, more on a long run.
      Looking for £300 for a sale, or prepared to roffle at £5 if theres enough interest, could do with shifting it relatively quickly though. I'm also up for swaps, preferably for something small, petrol and manual. Small Peugeots are a preference.
      Oh, and its in Lincoln. Sorry.

      Something amazing has come up, so this being the sensible economical family car I'm moving it on.  If it doesn't go quick I'll more the 205 on instead once it's tested, which would make much more sense as I like it a lot.
      Good:

      Running perfectly. 
      Pretty economical; guessing very high thirties or low 40s.
      Quiet
      Smooth
      Peugeot ride quality
      Big boot.
      Soft comfortable seats
      Bad:
      Needs a new side repeater lens (£15 on eBay)
      Could do with new tyres on the front as they're worn Chinese ditchfinders
      Bottoms of the doors are scruffy.
      Passenger window needs help to go back up.
      Located in Durham, delivery available at cost.

      Well, here it is, lots of fun has been had in this brilliant car but time and HMRC are on my case, so it has to go. Get ready for summer/ideal project/etc etc etc!!!

      Headlines:
      1.8 VVC with 52mm throttle body for extra zooms* MOT until 24/03/2020 - registration is P69 FKN if you want to check up on it Red leather seats Decent hood and rear window Surprisingly dirt cheap to insure - about £160 a year for me limited to 3k miles and that's with no NCB and my 9 points declared... Loads of fun. Stuff that came up on the last MOT, and the action taken, was:
       
      Horn sound not in accordance with requirements (7.7 ©)
      This was because of my hilarious* klaxon horn. I've got two horns fitted, you can plug in whichever you feel like (or both). Offside Rear Suspension component mounting prescribed area excessively corroded significantly reducing structural strength outer sill (5.3.6 (a) (i))
      Now welded. Electronic power steering warning lamp indicates a system malfunction (2.6 (a))
      The tester says that the light came on on the test drive but I didn't believe him. It's never happened before and hasn't happened since. I cleaned the PAS fuse under the bonnet anyway. Offside Front Track rod end ball joint dust cover excessively damaged or deteriorated so that it no longer prevents the ingress of dirt (2.1.3 (g) (ii))
      Replaced the track rod end. Nearside Front Lower Suspension arm ball joint excessively worn (5.3.4 (a) (i))
      Replaced top and bottom balljoints on nearside. Exhaust carbon monoxide content after 2nd fast idle exceeds manufacturer's specified limits (8.2.1.2 (a)) Exhaust carbon monoxide content at idle exceeds manufacturer's specified limits (8.2.1.2 ( )
      Although it did pass on the next test, they note "vehicle struggled with emissions". This is probably because before the test it had been laid up for several months. Since then I've driven 400 miles to Blyton and back, as well as hammering it round all day at up to the redline, so I'm confident the emissions will be in significantly better shape now.  
      I bought this from here about 18 months ago I think. Since then it's been a second car and has been loads of fun, and a brilliant first track car.
       
      In daily use it's great to have the hood down, it starts first time every time, and is generally no trouble. On the current tyres it is bloody dangerous/loads of fun [delete as appropriate] on wet roundabouts. On track, in the dry on R888s, there are insane amounts of lateral grip and very little understeer/oversteer. The brakes are awesome, even though they are standard, though I did manage to get some fade within about 7-8 laps of really pushing at Blyton, which I guess is due to lack of heat dissipation; though on the day in question, the rear brakes really weren't working as well as they should, so it might just be that I was leaning on the fronts too hard.
       
      Since I've had it it has had regular maintenance - a couple of oil and filter changes, plugs, etc. The winner can have their choice of wheels, either the VVC 5-spokes or the TF 6-spokes, plus a spare set of standard 6-spokes for track use if they want them (I'm keeping the tyres though). I'll also supply the original 48mm TB. I think I can detect a bit of movement in the offside balljoints so I will change those as well before it goes. It had a new bottom-half-of-downpipe-and-flexi-hose shortly after I got it as well.
       
      Body wise, despite the welding required for the MOT, it looks pretty solid all round. There is some rust on the battery tray but otherwise it's pretty good; there's a spot on the bottom of the drivers' wing as well, shown in photos, but I have a spare wing to swap onto it so I'll try and do that before sale as well. All panels are straight with no significant dents or scrapes.
       
      Mechanically it seems sound and everything works. The gearshift will never be as slick as an MX5 because it's cable operated, but it's pretty good. There are various aftermarket bits available to get the shift better, but I honestly haven't found it an issue; when the box is cold it's sometimes just slightly harder than it should be to find third, but once warm, this goes away. The heater is extremely efficient; you won't be cold, even with the top down.
       
      Engine wise, I haven't had a K series before so I have nothing to compare it to, but I have no reason to think everything isn't OK, particularly since I've twice driven it to Blyton from Bristol (400 mile round trip) and done a track day and then driven home again. The coolant did get very hot on the track day last year, but it was an extremely hot day. The exhaust has a slightly "air cooled" note to it which might be a small blow at the manifold, but it's not a cause for concern, just pointing it out because it's there...

      Bad points: 
      Not completely watertight. There is a drip in the driver's footwell and a couple around the hood, over the engine cover. I've never tried to trace or fix them. No carpet - removed by urban_paranoia because they got wet and stank. I've replaced them with rubber mats which I like more anyway, and it gives it a more rough-and-ready feel when you sit in it... which I don't mind... As mentioned above, it can be GR8 4 DRIFTIN in the wet if you're not careful... Could probably do with the tracking doing since I changed the TRE.
        Will add more details as I think of them. Any interest at £10 a ticket?
