1990 TZD Turbo up for sale

Post by bussell » Thu Apr 09, 2015 4:08 pm

Hi All,

Its a bit sad but I could do with having one less car as I am moving house and have nowhere to put by BX. She has a thread - "The Tatty Bus" showing some of the work I have done on her. She is a 1990 TZD Turbo 1.8 TDi - in metallic grey (the best colour - if not the best paint!)

Also photo bucket URL below for pictures of her/work carried out

I am not desperate to sell but am not unrealistic about what she is worth either.

Overall - the good

Non ABS Model
129k Miles
Cam belt done at about 118k
MOT October 2015
Very solid underneath (one small hole in rear inner arch - has been sealed and passed MOT but want to be honest)
I have locally treated any small areas of rust and repainted accordingly (I have yet to remove the bumpers but have been really pleased with how solid she is)
Front inner wings cleaned, treated and painted to avoid corrosion
Great on fuel 50+ MPG
Keeps up with the Audi/BMW/Mercedes lane on the motorway
V5 present etc.
Original fit radio cassette player with code and manual
4 new spheres March 2015
LHM Flush March 2015
Rear arm bearings done 2014 less than 3k miles ago
New air filter fitted 2014
2 keys
Full service history
All electrics work (except the top inch of the drivers window which needs help by hand)
Straight bodywork
Beautiful ride
Towbar, roof bars and cycle carriers included
Sunroof wind deflector
All suspension pipes waxoiled from new
Heater controls work
Interior in pretty good condition - with replacement glove compartment - and replacement covers for interior lights
New Citroen strut return pipes fitted at last MOT
Interior in good condition
All original etched glass

The not so good

The paintwork has lacquer peel (all of the roof, the bonnet and one front wing)
Needs new washer bottle for rear window
Front bumper has a knock on the corner - this could be filled and re-painted
Rear bumper is cracked across the middle (comes with new bumper)
Drivers window needs help for the top inch (motor works but it jumps a bit)
A couple of dash bulbs need replacing
Small rear speakers have been removed
Small rust hole in rear inner arch, this has been cut out, cleaned and sealed until the welding is done (does not effect MOT, just want to be honest as you will not notice it)
Fuel filter assembly has been removed and replaced with aftermarket fuel filter as the old housing was leaking air (old part with car)

Comes with
A good set of original fog lights
Clutch cable (new)
A spare rear light cluster
A replacement rear bumper (complete)
A spare OSF wing
A spare parcel shelf
Oil and filter to do the oil change (due now)
Rocker cover gasket

Also available - a full set of 4 6J BX GTI Alloy wheels (need tyres) by separate arrangement - I know I paid well over the odds for these doh!
Nb: I had planned on fitting new discs and pads although it went through the MOT fine - for my liking they are a bit pitted/scored but brakes work well

I am open to offers, would like her to go to a good home etc. She is in my workshop in Plymouth, Devon, however she can be brought up to Cheltenham where I live for viewings/test drives if that is more suitable.

Hi John,

I am not really sure what she is worth. I would like to get back £750 which is less than she owes me, but hey I have loved owning her for the last year and have had some great journeys in her.

If you want to call me that is fine I will PM you my number.

Thanks

Ed
