For Sale 2.5TD CDX Estate
« on: 16 April 2017, 17:16:26 »

1999 2.5TD CDX MFL Estate in Polar Sea Blue, grey leather, 132,000 miles. First registered
11th March 1999. MOT until 24th April 2018.
Management car bought by me from VX on 5th November 1999 at 7000 miles.
Audio system is the CCRT700 with integral telephone facility, and 6 slot cassette CD player in the load bay.
Full service history, not VX. Oil & filter changes have been done at about 3k intervals.
Bodywork condition very good, and has been lovingly cared for by me for 18 years. There is very slight rust bubbling at the back of the rear NS arch, all the arches were treated and sprayed a couple of years ago.
All four corners, i.e. rear of front inner wings and front of rear inner wings, have had solid welding work done.
Everything works as it should except the following:
Driver’s heated seat hasn’t worked since a week or so after I got it, and CBA to get it fixed. ::)
Some illumination bulbs in the climate panel have failed.
The fuel filter electrical plug is secured with a cable tie.

The engine ECU has the full fat performance chip fitted, original chip comes with the car.
A common fault on these is the seizure of the turbo intercooler fan as conditions rarely trigger its operation. Mine failed due to this, and I have altered the cct such that it is now switchable and fused via a relay.
All shock absorbers and springs have been renewed in the past two years.
The front wishbone bushes are poly bushed.
The rear doughnut bushes are poly bushed.
New centre and rear silencers fitted last year.
Coolant system flushed and refilled recently. The viscous fan has not been fitted for some years, but comes with the car.
The AC condenser was replaced 2 years ago. There are signs of leakage from the AC compressor, and so I bought a new one last year pending failure of the AC, it is still working, so not required yet. This also comes with the car.
Ignition switch and barrel replaced recently.
Steering pump replaced last year.
Last year I removed the AR35 gearbox to replace a broken thrust washer. When refitting I cracked a small portion of the engine sump, which is neither structural nor oil retaining, and therefore I have not replaced the sump. A month or so ago the box appeared to ‘slip’ slightly in “D” but has been OK since ATF renewal. A brand new unused AR35 comes with the car, but it is for a Carlton, and although I have altered the wiring to suit the Omega, the gear actuator shaft is on the opposite side of the box, and therefore the shaft from the existing box needs transferring.
Roof bars and cargo net also provided.
Some other spares, filters etc., are also included,
This car is good for another 130K, or until the Government bans diesels. :-X
£700 ONO.

Am I being over-optimistic? I really would prefer this to go to a forum member, so all offers will be welcome. :y

Goes against the grain but might be worth parking it up and see if this happens if you get no interest.
Drivers could be paid 'up to £2,000 to scrap diesels' -

It will be trade in for a new hybrid or WHY. :yHaving looked on line I am clearly expecting too much for this. Special offer, half price, £350, must go or else I drive it to the scrappy with a year's MOT on it. :'(

Possibly, possibly have someone interested in this. Waiting for a reply from him. Rare case of "child forces car purchase" ;)
