Hey everyone. I have tried to sell this car several times over the last year or so but due to its issues and me trying to get as much as I can out of it, I have struggled.

The car has high mileage but it has 19 full services in the service history and has had roughly £1500-£2000 spent on it in the last 12 months in order to get it ready for a road trip me and my mates did to Wales. It did 550-600 miles with no hassle or issues of any kind.

This is a good car that simply has high miles and is a bit tatty.

The turbo is smoking but still pulls and doesn't smoke much if you run it regularly. Car will come with a spare Turbo and a Turbo rebuild kit with the 360 degree bearing.

Oil pressure will hit 1.5 BAR when it is really hot. This is nothing to worry about, car has had this oil pressure all the time ive had it and all the time the previous owner had it.

Come and see this car....I only want £850 for it. Desperate times mean I need to sell quickly so this is a real bargain.

Hi, some questions: How bad is the welding that needed doing around the handbrake? Did you remove the aircon? (I presume the compressor is knackered if it doesn't work?) is there still a squeal from the engine? - you have mentioned you thought it was the auxiliary belt. Have you got evidence of what you had done by (stala?) ie brakes and cv boots etc

Hey,

Handbrake turned out not to need welding....this was repaired by a local garage just before my wales trip back in late May. There is still a slight squeal from the engine.....belts were done in 2011 at 141k so probably need doing.
I have the receipt for all the work completed in my ownership.
Aircon was not removed.

Also found out when looking through the comprehensive service history last night that the car was once owned by a guy who's name is Mr Gross-Custard........thats got to be worth something smile
