For sale here we have my 1995 9A 2 litre 16 valve corrado in blue. 149 200 miles on the clock and still running very well. There are a few reasons as to why I am selling so I will list them:
1. Just passed my bike license so living in London I fancy moving around on 2 wheels and not sitting in traffic any more.
2. Car only really used on week-ends for shopping so is being wasted.
3. Do not fancy doing insurance again for another year as I am getting the bigger motorcycle.
4. A recent issue with the car has annoyed me and I am not prepared to dump more money into the car - I will go into detail about this shortly.
5. The fuel savings alone will go towards the new bike :smug:
So let's get started. I bought the car last year and it was in a bit of a state as some of you who read my readers ride thread will remember. I paid £1500.00 for the car and ploughed another £2500.00 roughly into getting it to the present condition it is in. Work carried out on the car involves the following as far as I can remember:
OEM steering wheel
OEM gear knob
New centre console as the old one was damaged
New dash vents
New headliner as the old one was soaked from a poorly refitted windscreen
New sunroof seal
Drivers door handle repaired
New stereo fitted as car came without one
New tyre as one was knackered
New ABS sensors done yesterday
Service done recently - Air filter, Plugs, Oil filter, dizzy and cap
Other small bits done that I can't remember right now
New complete exhaust system
New throttle control thing as the previous one was broken and the cable was cable tied in position!
Brand new JOM coillies but the ride is pretty crashy if I am honest as it sits very low
Uprated headlight wiring loom - not fitted but will come supplied
New FEBY wiper motor
New TT wiper arms and blades
New washer pump
New alarm fitted after the TOAD one packed up
All in all this car is in very decent condition having benefitted from a previous re-spray which I may add is not the greatest but it does look rather fresh. This car has run pretty faultlessly over the nearly 12 months I have owned it apart from once when it gave up the ghost and refused to start, turned out to be a fuse for some strange reason, and no issues since. Yesterday when I finished work (or should I say 3am this morning) the car decided not to start again. Very annoying at 3am when all you want to do is go home and sleep. So I left the car at work and returned at 11am and what do you know, she started no problem. Got home and took the car for a wash and miraculously it refused to start again and after 5 mins fired up again. I am at a complete loss as to why it has done this but after all the money and time spend sorting the car I have decided enough is enough which is why I am selling up now. More than likely it will turn out to be a sensor of some sort but I don't have the patience to be dealing with it any more in all honesty.
Now although the car is in pretty good condition there are a few issues the potential buyer should be aware of:
The exhaust rattles against the rear beam I think, easy fix but I aint bothered to be honest.
Humming from the o/s rear wheel - think it is a bearing and I have a new one but no time to fit it so will come supplied to new buyer
A few dings as would be expected for a car of this age and a few rust bubbles, easy fixes I think for the person with the means and time.
Electric mirrors do not work, I have investigated but can't find out why
Fan switch works on 2 and 3 but intermittently on 1 - sure a clean up of the contacts will remedy this
Sunroof tilts and slides as it should
Boor spoiler works as it should automatically and manually from the button
2 keys present and 2 remotes for alarm
I have lots of paperwork but never really looked through it
Car has 6 months tax
MOT due in October
Now the price. I am after £800.00 ovno if I MOT the car or if someone takes it ASAP I will let it go at £600.00 (not negotiable) and if you come here trying to get me below that £600.00 mark I shall thank you for your time and send you on your way. Here are pictures of here taken today. Thanks for taking the time to read my advert and please......no tyre kickers or time wasters please as this is a genuine reason for sale and I am keen to get my big bike
