Is it just me or does the drivers seat look like it has done London taxi miles?

One of the sales men rang me back about an hour a go. He pleaded ignorance over the problems this car had and promised that all existing faults would be rectified. If the engine has been run dry of oil and been noted as "abnormally noisy" surely the only remedy is a tear down and full inspection of the cam shaft, valves, bores etc.

So to round up:

The body work is shot
The interior is battered
The engine is knackered
It has rusty brake lines
The drivers seat restraint needs replacing
It hasn't been serviced since 2014

All this on a car with only 55,000 miles. I'm very curious to know what the repair scheme is for this car. It will be a bit like triggers broom by the end of it!

Wow, I know this car. It used to live near me and I considered leaving a note a few times, bullet dodged!

3 for sale on eBay at the moment… varying in price From £16k through to £20k and mileages from 63,000 to 107,000.

Not sure if anyone is looking but thought I’d mention them.

Hope you’ve all had a good Christmas.

Builds 026 and 155 are amongst them. There is previous sale history for these two within this thread too.

£20k for a 63,000 mile example bodes well for mine, currently sat on 44k with a fresh MOT on Christmas eve :thumbsup:

Believe it or not #5 the 20k is for a 90,000 mile example… albeit it holds the number plate E85 ALP which is included.

Realistically I can’t see a 93k miler fetching £20k even with the plate. (The plate is worth £1k max I’d say )

Yeah I think it’s steep too, the silver one has 63k on it for £17,500 although it’s been tinkered with a bit (non standard badges, coil overs etc).

Yes. This was previously BigScreen's car from Bristol. He took it to Spain in 2015 and brought it back only a year or so back
It was last up for £16k in April 2021 with 64k on
The Door pockets have been filled with speakers, Head Unit swapped out, badges changed and non-standard Headlamps fitted (possibly due to it being used on the other side of the road for 5 years) Its also a Non-lux model.

Agreed, and especially when it was for sale little more than 18mths ago at £8.5k and it's still not passed an MOT since then.

Looks like #312 (not certain, but hopefully someone else can confirm) is up for sale: 38k miles £24.5k

Odd that it had three MOT tests in 2017 and nothing showing on the history before 2016, but if it's #312 then that was in Jersey for a while.
