    Hire an AA mechanic to asses the car if you are interested. He will tell you what needs changing and what will eventually need replacing. I have used them myself and they are excellent.

    Check for oil leaks, cam belt will de due at 80K so check for service history,

    Control arms should be checked as these are known to fail.

    Thought for some reason it was a trade sale. As i will need finance or need to sell my car in to short a time frame.
    Stunning though i may go rob a bank and get back to you.
