    .....the catch is its an Agila :p

    //pics now below

    I've owned this car for about 6 months and done 1200 miles in it, bought it off a local chap who's family had owned since new. We got it as a stop gap between second cars and Mrs.Stu has used it as a town runabout, to the shops/nursery etc, and its done a fine job. I've literally only fed it petrol (and a single oil top up) and its not missed a beat. I'm actually going to miss it, quite enjoy driving it myself in a strange perverted way.

    Good points

    Its a car that works
    Its £400
    46000 miles from new
    //I checked its 47500, see image below
    tyres look ok
    Lovely high driving position
    Very spacious inside for the footprint
    6 Months MOT, will confirm exact date tomorrow
    //I checked, its near 5 months
    You can break out your old cassette tapes again

    Bad points

    Minimal service history, could be none, will check tomorrow
    Body work is shoddy in place, few dents and scratches, just prangs, no sign of accident
    It's not an Audi S5, look at another thread for that
    I'm after £400, lets not waste energy bargaining at this price point, its a car that moves for £400 and has MOT
    Can sound a bit noisy when cold, but I think thats more the nature of this Vauxhall 1.2 engine, tappety tap tap
    The left speaker inside does not work
    When I first bought the car it smelt like a dog that had been for a swim, then left to dry for a few days, . I'm hoping the passing of time and some air freshener has fixed that, but it could just be me acclimatising to the unique odour.
    It's not great on the motorway, think the tracking needs doing, or could be the fact its shaped like a cornflakes box and gets blown around like one

    It's on a 2002 plate, its the 1.2 version as well, so not dangerously slow, but you wont be doing drag races.

    Located in Solihull.

    Price and currency: 400
    Delivery: Delivery cost is not included
    Payment method: BACS
    Location: Solihull
    Advertised elsewhere?: Not advertised elsewhere

    I was going to make an offer on this great wee car but it look like it’ll cost too much to deliver to NI by MyHermes

    Have a bump on me for such a fun ad and I hope you sell soon.

    After all it’s only FOUR HUNDRED QUID BARGAIN!

    I’ve been in quite a few police chases but fortunately I’m a Police officer so I’m the one chasing!

    I’ve tried several companies as this would be a second car on the policy which I think is the issue. Even with the value at £300 and TPFT it’s £462!

    If I could get a quote anywhere near what you’re paying I’d be over tomorrow to collect it!

    What’s the tax on it?

    I can see how paying more for the insurance than the car would sting a little!

    Tax is £190 a year.
