    Buying Help Please....... Dodgey...?

    Hi all, ive found a nice looking coupe. 2.2 Its a 51 plate with 40,000..........

    It got a few mods, exhaust, alloys, tints....

    The guy has said it has full service history with the most recent being 2,000miles ago.

    Mot runs out end of march, Same with Tax.....

    I Just dont want to be selling my perfectly good car just to buy a hunk of junk...

    It all sounds good, and it looks nice in the pictures, mileage is low etc... BUT, hes only asking a little amout for it which kind of puts me off, well makes me think somthing might be wrong with it.

    Anyway hers the add -- http://www.swapz.co.uk/swapz/1684723...2_0_non-turbo/


    opinions please

    does seem too good to be true to be honest. . . but if he says its got full service history and lots of receipts then i dont really see a problem. . . . take it for a test drive if he allows and open her up a bit. . . .listen out for the obvious rattles or knocking and take someone with a knowledge of engines with you so they can spot something you might not know about.

    Somebody complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen, it said 'Parking Fine'.

    As other posts seems a great car,but ask the guy if he will give it a new mot to put your mind at rest,if its as good as he says then should be no problem for him to do this.
