What's this pfl MV6 worth?
« on: 08 May 2018, 20:42:55 »

Got chance to buy back a car I once owned. It's an S reg.

MV6 Omega in Champagne, manual and leather.

56k miles, 2 previous owners (1 being me first time)

It's ropey round rear wheel arches and door bottoms and wheels have have been painted a single colour so need full refurb.

Well it's just a bit on the rarer side, having the low ownership and mileage

Plus colour & leather combo nice

It's in Scotland and I'm in East Yorkshire so there's 200 pick up fee already

I thought 500 tops

Not only gay gold, but rusty gay gold. Go for it.

Check the sills carefully if it has rust elsewhere.  ;)

Did you regret selling it ?   if so get it back . . . but 700 ??  not sure about that  :o :o

But   . . there is a MFL Elite on flea bay with seller asking over  2 large  :o :o :o

MFL rust . . rear arches, tops of doors & of course cills . . .needs a good look over IMO  :-\

You have that back-to-front, if the sills are rusty look very carefully at the rest of the car.
Rusty sills can be repaired economically or easily if you DIY; much of the rest of the structure will be far more problematic.

Gay Gold eh? Well it's same colour as the rust so blends nicely. ;D

Reckon wheels will be 120 a corner to do a proper job (seen a set on eBay for 450 or best offer for full refurb set), bodywork/paintwork I reckon 300-450 depending on what's found . Then there's MOT and fresh service. Cam belt done quite recently so that's something.

So reckon a total spend on 1,500+ But could be one of the best ones out there when done (taking mileage/low ownership) - mmm decisions decisions !!

Best talk to the wife  ::)

Well I did have it from nearly new back in early 2000, so got some pics of it looking nice and fresh then 😎.

Was a Vauxhall fleet car before me. It had 8400 miles on it when I got it and ( very sadly ) still got the purchase invoice from the Vauxhall dealer.

The rub is, hence the wife discussion, is I've already got a 1999 MV6 which is a one previous owner, full specced car with 113k on clock. Although it's suffering head gasket failure and awaiting attention presently and on SORN.

Not many chances to acquire one these days as numbers in their teens available. Guess if I buy it at least I can decide at a later date what to do.

Please note, 95% of my posts are piss take or banter and should always be taken as so.

I would be on the side of Tigers Gonads here  . .& cautious of diagnosing HG failure. There were some '99 cars suspect of HG failure as I understand it . . .but these were 2.5's , yours being a MV6 & therefore, I think a 3.0, &  HG failure on 3.0 engines is very very rare.   Oil cooler issue maybe ?
