Re: Im thinking of buying this.......

Seen this on Ebay twice in the past, seems ok from the pics but you can't go by them for sure.

Headgasket, clutch cables and sensor faults are some of the most common as is the handbrakes. You could check the bills for evidence of these being repaired.

Price seems ok to me but I'd still try and barter him down some more.

Flutter your eye lashes woman!!

The eyelashes always work, you can play dumb when you want to for sympathy then suddenly get smart again

Re: Im thinking of buying this.......

knock the price down if they drilled holes to put that minging spoiler on, because that will take some money to fix.

btw welcome to the forum, everybodys mad here except me

Re: Im thinking of buying this.......

I think it was built in 1999 but not registered until 2002.

i was thinking that too

but it a long time to have a car un-registered, most garages would pre register it and flog

but if v5 is with the car, can be checked, or try one of them rac things

just confusing that they never mentioned it in the actual ebay advert

its a high milage car for 3 years old though

This link http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...539412049&rd=1

Says it's a V registered in 2002, I'd want to see the books or run an HPI just to be sure.
