Default White Gold Connie 1951 cc CDTi Auto

Bought for over 2K 3 years or so ago from Frazzle of these boards, following a recommendation from a member who'd seen her for sale. Been a great car overall, daily use and motorway jaunts all good. Only big issue in that time being a cutting out problem, which Jules in Conwy sorted for me via wiring mod 2 years ago. I'm based in Staffordshire. Price £800.


12 months MOT s of 20/06/19. Cost me £100 to get her through, inc a corroded brake pipe, loose handbrake, antiroll bar drop link (which I'd bought in anticipation) and front lights needed covers polishing. MOT tester was surprised at how solid she was underneath for a 03 plate car.

So the good:


Solid mechanically and sealed underneath with waxoyl by previous owner.
Smooth auto box. No issues at all.
Big Russ remap
BMW K series engine. No leaks anywhere. 155K on clock.
Working Cruise control
3 good tyres and one down to 3 mil or so
Exhaust fitted 6 months ago
New discs fitted when I bought her
Shockers and springs replaced
No rust on body other than the odd spot you might expect from a 15 yr old car
Partial service history and many bills.
Aftermarket Pioneer stereo/CD player fitted. (good for me - not for an enthusiast)


And the not so good:


Useless handbrake. have to have it adjusted at every MOT..needs a mod.
Heater matrix blocked meaning cold air on passenger side.
Aircon doesn't work - or needs re-gas.
Several light scuffs and paint scrapes with front corners of bumper most affected. Needs touching up.
Bit of smoke when you put foot down fully..which it's had since I bought it. Not really bothered me tbh as I drive fairly with a light foot on the pedal and most likely MF sensor. I have a spare.
Lines in message screen. You can make out miles done etc but it's not perfect.

Reduced to £700. An absolute bargain with full MOT for someone. Happy to send pics on request.
