xsara d turbo

Post by jamjar1383 on Thu 18 Nov 2010, 11:00

now i have bought my 406 i no longer need the xsara so it is now for sale

its a bit on the rough side and needs a good weekend's work on it to put it right but most of the parts to fix it are included in the price but not fitted.

bad bits
starting from the front
the inlet manifold/turbo manifold bolts need to be torqued up as i replaced the gasket due to a boost leek but couldnt get much turn on the nuts.
oil and filter due soon (included)
dash illumination for the clocks doesnt work
drivers air vent is holding the boost gauge but i have a replacment vent
blower is run off a seperate switch not the original one
front mounts on rear beam need replacing (also included)
exhaust is bodged together but mostly complete.

good bits
mot til 31st march 2011
tax just put 6 month's on it last week (112)
timing belt kit and aux belt changed at 140k
oil and filter done EVERY 6k
new rad 6 months ago
spoiler and rear lights from my mk2 xsara vtr
eyebrow spoilers
upgraded rear shocks and powerflex rear beam tensioning kit
clean and tidy body and interior
done 143k but its still got a lot of life left in it yet
also i have a spare pump and turbo bought from simon i will also include
3 week old fli front speakers
jbl 6x9 in the shelf (spare shelf without hole's inculded)

doesnt come with the wheels but im going to put on a set of steel ones.



sounds much worse than it is but so much life left in this car

350 priced to sell quick but i really wont take any less for it so no offers

if it doesnt sell by the 26 of nov i will keep it til after xmas and do all the work and be putting it up for quite a bit more.

please feel free to ask any questions

When you say the bolts need torquing up, does the car actually still have a boost leak? I'm very very interested mate I want something cheap to run about in for a couple of months

I would also be interested as a cheap run about.

What MPG do you get from it? On a run? Normal driving? Heavy footed?

Cost to fill up tank and miles per tank?

Could you PM me the reg, so that I could get an insurance quote.

They want to charge me an extra 60 for swapping it over for 2 months and then can't guarantee that i will have the same price again when i swap back to my car so i'm out as well sorry mate.
