  1. Lupo 1.4 tdi black 04 reg Good runner Engine management light on egr valve has been changed in the past. MOTd until beginning of June Four new tyres last year but slow puncture on one due to dent on alloy Drivers side door hinge needs sorting Selling as inherited from friend and I already have one, was serviced regularly Available in Norfolk Looking for £950
  2. Bit of a difference between the two prices.
  3. Hi all, I need some help to value an 04 Lupo 1.4tdi in black. It has 116k on the clock, engine management light is on but egr has been replaced in the past. Good runner, 4 new tyres, MOT until June, slow on one of them due to wobbly alloy. Some rust and door hinge needs sorting. Not modified in any way as far as I know. £30 tax. It has been stood. I inherited from a friend but with wfh I'm having a hard enough job keeping mine running so regrettably has to go. Can anyone advise on a reasonable selling price? I am in Norfolk so not exactly the centre of the universe for car sales. Any help appreciated. Oh and it needs a damn good clean.
  4. It shall be done as soon as I've got the MOT.
  5. Lol my other half is not happy about a spare car lying about 😁
  6. Lol I'll post it when it's ready to sell. 🤣🤣🤣
  7. I've already got one, tdi 1.4 diesel 😊👍 my baby has less miles.
  8. UPDATE: I had good news today, I went to talk to the mechanic that maintains our cars, I found out the EGR valve has been replaced but because the car is a diesel that is pre 2009 it can go through the MOT with the engine management light on. Who knew? So my plan is, put it through the MOT, hopefully pass, get the fault code read so I can sell it with a fair idea of what needs doing. Also if it passes the MOT I can run it to work and back for a couple of weeks (40 miles a day at 50-60 mph) and get everything going. Thanks for all your advice, I'll post when I'm ready to sell.
  9. I definitely can't do it myself as I have no talent for mechanics. So will a clean solve it do you think?
  10. Ok I have decided to get the egr problem fixed as I have just found out the car is out of MOT and it's chicken and egg. I can't get the MOT with the engine management light on and it won't sell properly without an MOT. So question do I take it to the local garage or someone advertising carbon cleaning as a specialty? Any advice? Will the clean solve the problem? Also have checked the mileage and it's actually 116k do you think it is worth doing this?
  11. It's black and 04 reg so qualifies for £30 tax. I don't know if that's a good colour or not
