    What to look out for when buying a 2002 plate 225 BAM.





    Firstly I own a 8L 225 BAM and wanted a heads up before my mate goes to buy one tomorrow.

    Regretably this thread is relating to a LCR 225 BAM however... As you know they are similar engine wise (if not exactly the same apart from the Quatrro syst/ Interior)



    Other then HPI check / listening to the engine on tick over / test driving it... What else is there to look for?



    Note: 60K done plus FSH and reciepts for everything.

    50/ 60k major service- What is there to be done/ replaced? Timing Belt? All oils inc Engine / Haldex? Water pump?




    Any help is MUCH appr.


    Thanks for your time,

    Joe
