Ok, Time to break it


Recommended Posts

Ah well, After three failed attempts to sell my 05 plate estate on bay of E I have decided I am going to break it, Absolutely nothng wrong with it except bubbling waist seals, Just can't get decent money for it, Shame really as its a cracking thing in lovely condition, So if anyone needs any estate bits let me know.

Hi Kenny

Its an 05 se, 130k, looks and drives half that, fsh up to 100k, Chap who owned it previously bought it at 100k and neglected the servicing, Big end bearings went so I have put a very sweet 96k miles engine and swapped out the gearbox and t box for 76k milers to be safe, completely HPI clear, Tons of toys on it, heated seats, Auto lights,  wipers and electrochromatic dimming mirror, headlamp wash, park sensors, the list goes on...... Passed its MOT with no advisories, Sills are rock solid as well, I swear eBay de-value literally everything, Books at 2100 in the trade.... want 1800 for it, I thought it would have been snapped up, Although i break em it is nice to keep the odd one or two on the road especially when they are this nice but hey ho, Can't afford to have it sitting around..

Ey up Mark,


What a travesty, I just can't believe that you didn't get something near to what you were asking for it. The description on eBay was a really fair one and when you compare it to some of the other rubbish advertised on there for similar money, it's hard to understand why it's not sold. Such a shame because it's got loads of life left in it.


I may well have use for the auto-dimming mirror as mine and the auto-lights have given up the ghost. I'll ring you mate.

Hi Mark,


What colour is this car?


I am looking for a bonnet for my 2006 X-Type and believe the colour is Midnight Black, code PEF.


Please let me know if you have or are able to source one.




Hi Dean


The car wasn't that colour but I spoke to Mark the other day on the phone and at the 11th hour he got a buyer for the car. I know that he got a saloon in the other day that he will be breaking but don't know the colour. You're best to PM him and he'll get back to you, he's been doing some night work recently so hasn't been around the forum for a couple of weeks.


Hope you get sorted out.
