Things to look for when buying

Ok, I got my ppi claim through yesterday and we are going to have a look around for a 500. Looking at 10/60 plate 1.2 sport.

What do I need to look for while inspecting the cars?

I have read about:

water in the footwell
Mould in the boot/water in the spare wheel bay
Rusty top mounts

What elts is there to keep an eye out for?

Read the stickied buyers guide


Water in the footwell is very uncommon
So is mould/water in the spare wheel well
The top mounts don't rust, it's only the washer at the top and that doesn't affect functionality.

That's good then, I have had a look at the guide before it's very good. What have people looked for when buying secondhand?
