Make me an offer!
I want to sell my 147 asap - have been meaning to for months (and it hasnt been driven for 2 months) and am in a manic job and planning a wedding so dont have the time to advertise it on all the appropriate channels.
Basically it is a decent car and I bought it 3 years ago and have had 2 1/2 years of joyful driving in my 'lush' car... (compared to my last one - a rover 200 deisel, say no more). It is a metalic red, 51 plate, 80k mileage, good spec decent motor that started to go wrong this last winter, sob sob. Replaced the exhaust as the old one fell off. The brakes froze on and the handbrake cable went. Got this sorted, plus two new tyres. Brakes replaced about 5k ago. Then the electrics seemed to start going dolaally - messages about errors on the ABS etc etc - battery replaced and code reading done - all ok. THEN the dash board electrics seems to go - the radio wouldnt work, speedo and all gauges stopped working, the lights stayed on even with the engine off and key removed from the ignition. Left it for a few days and re-tried and all was ok!! PHEW. But then the FINAL STRAW was this weekend when i washed it - ready to finally sell it and the key wouldnt work to open the car. I replaced the fob battery which means the fob is working (the light now flashes on the fob when pressed) but the car isnt responding - i think, the battery may be flat as havent dared to drive it in about 8 weeks so it is probably my own fault.
Anyway - am open to any and all offers as it needs to go this week!! Seriously. If i had more time on my hands, I would take my time but wedding planning is expensive and timely business! I will answer any questions genuinely and promise this isnt a wind-up - am just wanting to sell it asap.
Here's hoping someone wants it.
