    Advise on viewing an SRI-T (what to look for?)

    Well since my car was written off ive been looking for a SRI-T or GSi and tonight one fell into my lap. Went to have a quick look at an SRI-T which was at a garage 2 mins from my house and im going back tomorrow for a good look over and a test drive

    Cars is as follows:

    65,000 miles
    FSH
    Courtenay CS3 (265-270BHP) and exhaust system (not sure on brand)
    Years MOT and tax
    They've said they'll sort a service and cambelt in with the price too.

    Looks nice and tidy just needs a few little things to make it mint like wheel refub etc but the dealer have said they'd sort them for me so no worrys there.

    Just wondering if theres any thing i should look out for?

    Any help would be great!!

    Smokey turbo, knocking on cold or irratic idle are problems ive suffered on my Z20lets.

    Knocking on cold turned out to be bottom end

    Thats great! Thanks guys!

    Have already started it up and the engine was very quite and there was no tapping or ralltles/knocks so that seems fine.

    Will listen out for knocks from suspension on the test drive and also test the cluch as advised. Thanks for that!!

    Anymore for anymore? Going for a drive at lunch! Cant wait
