XM 2.5TD VSX Estate for sale -Malvern.

Post by detheridge » Fri Nov 15, 2013 8:29 am

Hi folks,
I bought a 1996 2.5TD Estate last week off Gumtree, but an impending divorce now means that I don't have the wherewithal to maintain it.
So: 1996 N plate, VSX (without aircon) silver, 195k. Alloy wheels (plus 1 extra spare) Sound condition but needs the odd rain strip and new accumulator and rear spheres. Tax and MOT till March 2014, quite a bit of history.
I paid £595 but I realise I must take a loss on this. It's only done 130 miles since filling the tank so there's at least £80 of fuel there as well.
Based in Malvern, so come and view. Any reasonable offer

Best wishes,
David.

Hi folks,
only one enquiry from here, and I'm taking offers from scrappers at the moment. Current best offer: £260.
Please someone, rescue this as a project car! Someone's going to be delighted with it after a bit of work, or as a source of spares there's a bunch of value here.
I have to move soon so it must go -you can drive it away.

Best wishes,
David.

Bloody hell I can't believe no one's offer more than £260! If I had the space I'd just it because it was cheap! :shock:

Hi again folks,
many thanks for the hint about the French Car Forum. Thanks top that my XM has found a good home and will be fully restored to fitness.
Many thanks to those who enquired.
(Quick tip: all those sites claiming that they buy/want/need any car are lying........)

Best wishes,
David.
