    WHITE civic mc2 1.8 vti aerodeck

    Please read as you won't find another honest ad like this. No hiding anything. Excuse that it's not clean, no mot so can't drive to a car wash -140,123 miles -Original engine an majority of the car is too -DOES NOT SMOKE OR BURN OIL IN VTEC OR IAB CROSSOVER -starts first time every time -Log book, service book full, all books an check sheet from new -Mot certificates from 2012 -NO RED KEY, OR CENTRAL LOCKING FOB, 1 ORIGINAL BLACK KEY, PLUS A KEY THAT WAS MADE. -carbon style trims inside -RAMAIR foam cone filter, with TOPFUEL short arm induction kit It's that sad time to let my beloved civic up for sale.. The car has been a tad neglected due to money reasons the last couple years. I now have a better paid job but as its around 20 miles from home, I've got a diesel due to fuel consumption. The car has never broken down other then a drive shaft snapping which has been fixed. Its genuinely an amazing car that's solid an just needs some attention to put it back to its former condition. These are very rare now, have gone up in value and believed to be not many more then 50 left in the UK. £800 o.n.o *MOT FAILURE* Failures are : -corrosion to front ns sill area (should not have been failed nowhere near the limit where it should fail an is easily fixable without welding, please see pics) -Also failed due to upper suspension ball joint, both sides on the front. -Needs new back box Advisories where -lower suspension arm ball joints both front -And headlights need a polish GOOD BITS ON CAR -new clutch 3 months ago -new driverside drive shaft, and oil seal last month - front pads an discs 5 month old, rear pads 1 month old -all fan speeds work -vtec solenoid gasket fairly new -good battery -roof lining is not saggy at all (common) -all 4 tyres within 6 months old BAD BITS ON CAR -Both fog lights have broken outer glass, however the inside glass is fine an they both work -Sump gasket and rocker gasket slight oil leak -Clutch master cylinder (above pedal) could do with replacing, common an not expensive, you can still drive fine. -Timing belt overdue -It has scuffed paint on the left front corner an rear driver side, nothing major -A small dent next to the grill. Happened while away from the car -The passenger door also got smacked into while I was away from the car. I have a silver one that will be with the car at your wish. -Rear trailing arm bushes could do with replacing -Few button bulbs have died inside the car -occasionally bogs for 2 seconds after you first drive, been told its just idle control valve or lambda sensor needs a clean. Other then that it drives A1 -air con radiator looking weak but does work -small crack on backside of driver mirror, no holes not noticeable EXTRA In the boot there is -new rear discs -new lower suspension ball joints - a J-sport decat pipe with new gaskets -Haynes manual - gearbox oil that wasn't used when drive shaft was done - about 2 litres of top up 5w-30 oil -silver door to replace damaged passenger door, will need spraying etc These cars at this mileage with mot and in good bodywork condition now sell for 1200 to 1600. With the condition of mine an the rarety an the bits that come with I feel £800 is a fair price Please message me if any questions

    White aerodeck mc2 1.8 vti mot failure value

    I know mate Same here, gutted to get rid but can't afford 220 miles a full tank anymore, I'm using a tank a week just for work, getting a more pocket friendly car, otherwise I would be fixing an keeping it going. Been by far the best solid an most reliable car I've had

    Yeah that's cool mate thank you, I'll put pics up now
  9. Hi all, devastated tbh, my deck just failed its mot on both upper ball joints, back box leak, an excessive corrosion to front ns sill area (shouldn't have failed in my opinion it's surface rust nothing more) Also advisorys on both lower front ball joints too. I'm now not in a position right now financially to sort this as I fancy a change of car soon so I don't feel its worth it throwing that kind of money at it. It's just ticked over 140 K an the engine still pulls sweet in vtec an iab crossover. It does not burn any oil at all, as its always warmed up an cooled down properly, never ever booted cold. It looses slight oil due to cam cover gasket an sump gasket needing replacement. The vtec solenoid gasket is fresh. It could do with a new clutch master cylinder, but the clutch itself was replaced 3 months ago. It also has a big dent in the passenger door because somebody hit it while parked an drove off. I have a silver door that needs a slight bend sorting out, needs spraying white but then it's good to swap over. I now feel I have no choice but to sell her to somebody that either will see her back to glory, or make use of the amazing b18c4 engine. I've owned since Jan 2015 from 101k to the 140 it's on now. What would people value this at nowadays as I know aerodeck values have increased Thanks again people

    Ball joints and bushes

    Hi all again. Been told I need few things for mot as my deck been neglected recently. I've got most of it, track rod ends, lower ball joints, but I've also been told my upper ball joints need doing but can't find any anywhere, being single wishbone do these even have upper ball joints? Don't have my trusty Haynes manual to hand so I'm not sure Thanks in advanced

    @noodels they're okay I've seen alot worse, they're in tact an @UnicyclingTom I have been thinking lsd. It's abit funny sometimes accelerating out of a corner. But I have a damaged drive shaft oil seal cause of a recent clutch change, could this affect it?
