    looks damn good to me. Almost too good! I'm guessing that the reason that is isn't up for 12k is because it doesn't have a "new" style number plate... but still, thats not worth 4k.

    other than that, it doesn't appear to have anything going against it. Its had all the maintenance needed (although it doesn't mention water pump or tensioners), new tyres , a new clutch and a new flywheel - just about all you could have wished for really (although it'd be worth enquiring when thes new parts were fitted)..

    Just really needs a HPI to make sure it's not a CAT D, but I cant see any reason why it's priced so low.

    I did just run a sort of HPI check on it and it doesn't seem to have anything logged against it. So looks like a good deal.
    I anyone is intersted you can run a free vehicle check at:
    http://www.freevehiclecheck.co.uk/
    You need to register, and it just says if the vehicle has anything against it, if you want to know what it is you need to phone a premium rate number, but its a good starting point.

    It's also on fleabay.

    It looks like a bargain for someone, providing it's HPI clear. :thumbsup:

    I gave it a quick go. You have to put a real email address in as it e-mails you a link to the results. Just said no information for vechicle in every category. So i dont know if that means that there is no information about it being stolen etc, or there is just no information at all.

    Seems a bit dodgy to me, it's ok though i didnt use my real details.

    I'd say that's too cheap, however maybe they want to get rid straight away (which is pretty worrying in itself).

    your right there, after alot of thinking, there is no point rushing, Why is it so cheap? when the dealer knows he can get alot more for it no matter what
