For Sale 820 SLi Goodrunner, £450.00 only!

Post by wobblydash » Sun Sep 27, 2020 9:44 pm

Hi All,
It is is with some reluctance I'm looking to sell my 1996 820 SLi... its simply too big for my Wife, and we need to both drive our cars, so, I'm making a compromise...

She's in decent shape for Her age,- with a few minor rust spots on her arches as per photos which I've protected, so haven't got any worse in the 2 and a half years I've had Her. MOT until Feb '21, and She has had the cambelt, w/pump, radiator and tyres all replaced just prior to my purchase, I have replaced the rear exhaust section/back box, and front discs/pads late last year, and battery approx 2 yrs ago too. As pics show, original ,weeping, coolant tank replaced with Volvo 850 one about 18mths ago- not the prettiest job but it works well.

All electrics work, though only 1 remote fob was all got, Lots of service history, invoices photos of work done, etc, handbooks, radio code/emergency keycode and 2 x Rover dealer service manuals. And yes, the '820' number plate came with Her.

She was an impulse buy at the time- (I saved Her from being bought for banger racing!!) collected Her from Newcastle, back to Reigate, Surrey 330 miles without effort and took Her to the Le Mans Classic in 2018 3 weeks later, where again She performed perfectly doing over 850 miles over the long weekend.- it was en route that a French lorry driver decided he wanted my side of the road , and took off the nearside mirror, which scratched the paint and window glass- as per the odd mirror and shown on the pics.
I paid £450.00 for Her and that is what I'm asking now, hopefully someone else can give Her a good home and enjoy Her as much as I have.
Any questions either PM here, or on m.c7@ntlworld.com

Very tidy example, good luck with the sale! :wink: :D

This bit made me laugh " its simply too big for my Wife, and we need to both drive our cars, so, I'm making a compromise...

She's in decent shape for Her age,- with a few minor rust spots on her arches"

Last line in particular - she's in decent shape for her age - your wife or the car? :P :lol:

I may have a spare mirror backshell in White Gold 1 - yours is White Gold 2 which looks more silvery to me but there is a difference between the two. In fact i think i may have a complete electric mirror but i don't know if yours are electric or not?
Cheers,
Dave

Update - it's raining non-stop at the moment here Mark, if it dries up later i'll get in the shed, if not rumour has it from Rumour-Mill Central (aka the Met Office) that tomorrow will be dry at some point.

Dave

Update #2 - good news and bad news! I've found the passenger door mirror and it is in fact White Gold 2, or at least appears to be that to me.

That's the good news.

The bad news is i've used the mirror glass from it, i may be able to find a replacement but work on the idea you'll have to swap the glass over. Also there are a few scuffs from its previous life and/or storage, nothing obvious at more than a few feet but just to make you aware it isn't perfect. However that may work to your advantage, if it was perfect it might look out of place on the car, despite the fact the car is in very good cosmetic condition.

I'll get some pics up later for you. :wink: :D
Cheers,
Dave
