Would you believe the keyless entry and go has gone faulty, I am trying to resolve the fault but the price will be reduced if it remains.

Hey Mannyo.....
Sorry to hear about your situation and apologies for not replying to a post you sent a while back (I rarely look on the forum).
Hope things improve for you soon - you've always come across as a top, helpful bloke after reading your posts and meeting you in person when I bought your D2.
That certainly seems a hell of a lot of car for 2k and if I were in the situation to be after a car - I'd snap your hand off - especially seeing first hand how you've nurtured your cars and applied your vast knowledge into maintaining them.
I remember when you picked me up in that car when I came down to buy the D2 - I was really impressed then!
Doesn't seem that long ago does it?
Surely it's got to achieve more than 2k?
Good luck Mannyo

Hi Chris

Seeing the car outside, knowing I cannot afford to give it the attention it needs really gets to me. I still take it out occasionally, but it needs to be used more to keep it tip top as they do not like being left undriven.

Yes still for sale

Locking issue remains, however using the remote key there is no problem. Only the keyless system is non functional.

She Still drives well, I did more than 300 miles last weekend in her.

As you may have seen from a recent thread, the D3 suffered an issue with the air suspension, so now has a replacement front strut and air compressor.

The strut is a rebuilt new non OEM unit, and the compressor is an aftermarket item.

The car needs to be sold, however I have another issue which I am not going to mention here yet but I will be completely open about it once I have looked into it more.

Suffice to say there maybe a significant price reduction as the car may become spares/repair as a result of what I found.

I am really feeling down right now, what with my work situation and now this.

As you can see from these pictures taken Sunday it looks perfectly fine.

Mannyo, I have not commented but have followed your threads closely. I was happy to hear the suspension was finally sorted but I' gutted to hear it may be to no avail. I hope it doesn't end that way mate. Good luck

Having thought about this for a few days, here is the situation.

When I changed the compressor relay, I spotted daylight through the floorpan. It looks like many years ago someone has jacked the car in the wrong place, causing a small dent in the floor pan near the sill and a small fracture where the jack was placed. Judging by the dust under the carpet it's been like this for some considerable time and maybe before I even purchased the car. It's been through at least one MOT in this condition, maybe a lot more and done at several different places.

I am going to get a quote to have the fracture repaired, it really is small. but the dent will have to remain. it looks like all the original metal is there, just need to find someone who can weld aluminium locally to get a quote from.

Will keep you all posted, the car is still for sale even as it is now.

I am driving it more than 300 miles this weekend, did not realisse that I've only done 2000 miles in it since last July.

Once I have the quote I am two minds what to do next with regards to price.

I had a similar crack welded up in Big Red by a local tig welding specialist. He commented that it was exceptionally hard aluminium and quite hard to weld, but it came out well.

Bear in mind that the sills on these are full of flammable expanding foam. For Big Red we had to remove a body grommet from inside the rear wheel well and fish all the foam out with a wire hook before welding. Worth checking that its not in, or next to, a void. The heat travels a long way in aluminium - Big Red's hole was about an inch diameter and I'd cleaned up 2 inches around it. The welding burned off another inch or so of paint so I ended up with a larger area than expected to refinish.
