WANTED D2 - D3 Petrol preferably S8.. ULEZ Compliant
 
Hello everyone.

I am in the market for D2 or D3 has to be Ulez compliant as it will be my dailiy. Does any one have anything interesting for sale?

tintin 1st December 2021 09:53 AM

Welcome & I hope you find something that suits.

Would you be able to give some more guidance that might help those on here to help you with this - e.g. your guide price/budget would be the most obvious thing to add, but maybe location too?

Your ULEZ comment implies that you're somewhere near London, which many of us aren't, so it could also help if you could advise on whether you're up for travelling to see anything suitable too :)

Hi. Yes Sorry.
My budget is arround 6-7K for the right car. I Live in London Hence the Ulez compliant. I am willing to travel for the right car, so distance is not an issue

Are D2 and D3 S8s really ULEZ compliant?

Crazy :rolleyes:

radyah 1st December 2021 10:39 AM

Petrol D3s are and D2s over 51 plate are ulez compliant

Yeah, I might have even commented on it, sorry :ROFL:

How my 19 year old S8 is compliant is beyond me, but hey ho, stupid stupid scheme

Very bloodie stupid.
In my very compliant motor I had to pay 15 on Remembrance Sunday just to drive along Pall Mall.
But I believe that is a congestion charge but on a Sunday?

Patience...there are a (large!) number of people on here who don't come on here on a daily basis - those with busier lives than me :ROFL:.

I'd suggest giving it until at least the end of the upcoming weekend.

Alternatively, try ebay or Pistonheads, if you can't wait and haven't already tried there ;)

Many on here are long term owners with the intention of remaining so. Tbh there's little turnover between forum members or even putting their motors up for sale. Most have usually acquired their cars from outside sources and, as there a only few cars left, even these are few and far between.

I'm likely going to be selling mine soon but as it's a 2001 I'm pretty sure it's not ULEZ compliant

MikkiJayne 3rd December 2021 09:00 AM

You're more likely to find something on the FB groups tbh. Stuff pops up there reasonably often.

Why not have a punt at this one:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/125027771009

Its been around on the tinternet for a bit and the price is unrealistic but the seller may need to sell, he has "priced to sell":)

Some discussion on it: http://forum.a8parts.co.uk/showthread.php?t=16451

You'd need to get the registration to run it past the ULEZ checker, 2001 seems to be a changeover year for that, not sure at what build date though.

I'm not really into FB but having had a quick gander I realise I know all the moderators there so maybe I need to at least have a look?

Very much so, far too many 'Barry' cars appearing on the FB group for my liking

Engine code is AVP so it's an FL2 and so ULEZ-compliant.

It is a early FL2 though because it has the PRND432 shifter which is rare in an FL2 - almost all of them are PRNDS.

Is Barry to you what Scotland is to Roberto Sarg? ;)

Whole ULEZ thing's a puzzler. Mine left the factory January 2001 & was registered April 2001. Y plate. It's Euro 3 & the minimum compliance is Euro 4. But according to TfL the only thing I'd have to pay for is the congestion charge.

That said, driving through London always feels like playing 4 wheel Russian Roulette to me & I'd be a bag of nerves risking the S8 in that on a regular basis...the likely single figure mpg wouldn't be much of an incentive either.

This is covered in the other thread we had recently. The FL2 A8 is Euro4 and so is compliant with the ULEZ. The FL2 S8 is indeed Euro3, however the DVLA originally registered the S8 as a sub-model of the A8 which appears to have ended up with them classifying it as Euro4, either because of a mistake or a technical limitation of the system which runs such things (gnomes in a dungeon in Swansea carving information in to stone tablets with toothpicks).

strummagnet 5th December 2021 03:06 PM

This may be a later model than you need but in budget?
