    Found my perfect car but.......

    Damn it,

    This would have been my ideal new motor had it not been for the high mileage........

    Do you guys agree in that it is a little high or is mileage not an issue as long it has been look after?

    Thanks

    very nice, but nothing mentioned about service history. if its been serviced regularly then should be ok, lot of high milers on here with no problems

    limited edition with excellent spec and very expensive front bumper!!

    if u could haggle to bring the price down a tad then ur onto a winner

    mileage is nowt personally - depends of course on the turbo and the rest of the engine and drivetrain etc

    If they are willing to provide a 3 month warranty with it I might be tempted.... surelt this would be enough time to see if the turbo has any issues with it..... then again, would a warranty cover a turbo unit or just the main engine?

    youll struggle to find a turbo is covered under a warranty - even a main dealer youd be lucky on this age of car

    worth a shot though.....or better still just negotiate on price! sod the warranty as most are shite anyway, get it checked over - if its a good un get it, the money u save can go towards a new turbo as it WILL give up soon no matter what

    nice motor, although it's very expensive considering the miles.
