    Shouldn't you have asked that before bidding

    cant see the seller being impressed if you tyre kick then say you dont want it, he could put an unpaid strike against you
    best bet is to ask before bidding realy
    good luck

    You got a link so we can have a look? 105k is quite a bit depends on what it was used for really.

    I did ask before i bid the thing was that i was outbid so i thought i would not win the car, but the seller canceled the bid after me with 8 hours to go so i was the highest bidder i think there was a bit of shil bidding going on.....The 105k puts me off a bit.

    • Alloy wheels

    This car has the fantastic 2.0 litre turbo engine; this engine marries great performance with good economy, the perfect engine for a car of this proportion. We have noticed the car occasionally stalls on idle; the engine sounds lovely and when drives the car drives very well.

    The interior is in excellent condition, the seats and carpets are very clean. All of the equipment we checked worked without fault; the stereo requires a code.

    As you can see from the photographs the car is in exceptional condition. There are no major imperfections in the body work of this car it really is in excellent condition. The car has very good treaded tyres all round. The 17 inch alloy wheels on the whole are in good condition and have the odd mark.
    Please see our feedback and rely on our reputation and integrity.
