Been lurking for a while, looking at buying an SRiT
Advertised for £6700 (he has said £6500 to me, to get it gone)
- Flame Red
- 29k miles
- Bailey's Dump valve
- Tinted Windows
- 6 months Tax
However, after having the RAC look at it (250 odd miles from me - to far to have 2 journeys) the following has come up
- MOT due 8/2 (Week and a half odd)
- 2 Dents (which he told me about, £280 quote to fix)
- Needs ALL brakes replaced (Discs and pads allround)
- Needs 4 new tyres
- Cambelt not been done (due 4 year change)
What do you reckon I should offer him? Not really bothered about tyres, as will be getting alloy's anyway, but it's a bargaining tool.
4*Toyo 215/40/17 @ £69 = £276 (Plus fitting, balancing etc)
All new brakes = £140ish + Fitting
MOT = At least £45, and any work!
2 Dents = £280
Cambelt = £230 from Thorney, not inc water pump
Grand Total = £971! Plus more for fitting!
Was thinking of offering £5600 - £5700, paying no more than £5900 - £6000, depending on condition. What do you guys think, is this fair? What about the price in the first place, is it reasonable?
