Selling good cars at a any price is hard at the moment so expect offers around the 2-300 mark. If it’s got a short not put it through just to increase your chances.
Thanks, yes it’s got a brand new MOT, up to 13/10/21 now. Hopefully £60 well spent, but we’ll see later.....

Re: Value for 416GSi?

How much do you want for it? Where are you? Hi - I’ll do a proper advert for it, with decent photos etc next week. I was trying to establish roughly what it should be worth via this thread. It’s looking like it will be advertised somewhere about £450, with new MOT & back on its original steel wheel...

Re: Value for 416GSi?

Before writing it off, find out what is actually wrong with it instead of guessing. Water or condensension is a normal byproduct of the combustion process, especially from cold. A rough idle can be lot's of things, fouled injectors or failing or incorrectly specced spark plugs for example. I wouldn...

Re: Value for 416GSi?

HGF on a D-series is unusual and unfortunate.... A replacement engine might be worth considering but you might not find one with the miles of yours. With this problem it probably worth only a quite small number of £hundreds :sad Thanks John. Yes that’s what I thought - there’s one with a similar pr...

Value for 416GSi?

I apologise in advance, as I hate these posts too, but I really need a bit of help here! My 416GSi auto is unfortunately going to have to move on to pastures new. I really don’t know what sort of price to ask, and I’m hoping there will be some sensible thoughts in here (I can’t deal with the Faceboo...

Re: Metro and Mini Show/BMC and Leyland Show 6th Sept 2020

I saw in the earlier thread that we “might” have free tickets for this. Having annoyed myself 2 years running by buying them a week before the Club offered freebies, do we expect some again? The purchase deadline is 30/8 according to the Museum website. It’s only a few £ I know, but I’d rather give ...
