Default Anyone need anything?

Put this in here as it is off to the crusher next week and it didnít get any reads in social forum.
The diesel tourer failed big time with need for welding of sills and rear suspension mountings, so I have decided it is time. I hope to get another tourer, will have to see what comes up.

Would have considered having work done, but not sure there are reliable garages who would do a good job. Sound like quite a big bill!

I have had nearly 6 years of joy driving around the Isle of Wight with my dogs in the back, smooth and graceful!! Have had compliments for how nice the car looks.

It seems such a shame to send it to the crusher as the paintwork (is it Westminster blue?) is very good on the doors and bonnet etc, but as I live on the Isle of Wight other owners would face some issues collecting any panels.

I have taken out the leather interior, rear lights, headlights, CD player and various other bits in hope of using again. Also have new spare rear upper and lower suspension arms that I purchased some time ago in expectation of needing them at some point.

There is a V6 2.0 tourer for sale locally, havenít seen it yet , but only 60000 on clock but would need belts etc, again donít know mechanic on the Island who I could trust this to.

Oh dear! Have another car, my Skoda Octavia, so will now use this for daily transport.

If anyone wants me to take of bonnet front wings or doors etc, please let me know, they are all in v good nick with no rust and good paintwork without damage.

Yes, but sorry they are going in a box of stuff that I might need if/when I get another 75.

Hi, I don't suppose it has a good MAF sensor or are you looking for another diesel?

Hi,

Is it sandstone, or moon stone interior please?

If sandstone, I may well be interested in rear carpets and side pieces.

Regards

Mike

Sorry Mike, I am not sure what interior it is. Is there a way of me identifying. Also not sure what carpets and side pieces you are referring to, I will have a look in the morning and let you know what I can find out.

I replaced it couple of years ago, engine runs well and smooth. However I need to start car to get it out to the road for the scrappy to collect it, so I will need to leave it in place and would not have time to take it out. I can’t leave it on road until he arrives as I have taken seats, lights out etc. and it is not insured or MOT’d.
