I don't know of the car, but follow the market and it's been up for sale on eBay for a very long time.

Looks clean though.

I don't know the car/dealer, though the online MOT history is quite colourful with quite a few advisories and the odd fail. It looks like the car has done about 5k miles in 5 yrs with MOT dates all over the place.

As usual advice, Get an independent inspection undertaken (including a borescope) as it'll be worth the cost though on a car of this age it's items such as brakes/tyres/suspension and rads that need to be looked at. I'd also ask for a full breakdown of its service history/how/what/when before you go to see it or organise an inspection and full details of the warranty scheme they use. If the dealer won't let you have It inspected (if you were to ask), I think that's a indicator not to pursue it when there are others available in the market who will.

I did look at that myself, it looks really tidy in the flesh.

Where is it in the country? Must be close enough to a respected specialist to get a (paid for ) PPI done. If you have that and negotiate a good price based on it then nothing to be scared of I’d say.

The cynic in me says that as it's the cheapest 50k mile car I can see advertised yet it has been for sale for a while, then something must be amiss somewhere. Might be worth calling round the local specialists and see if any of them have done a PPI on it already?

That is a stunning colour and I thought it had sold a week ago - said reserved - then came back for sale. Lots being reduced at the moment and none sold, so far as I am aware in the last month - hang on a bit, the market is cooling.

That is a beautiful model, how long ago did you sell it?

About 2 years now. It's only done around 5k since then.

OP - if you’re interested in another Slate Grey C4S then drop me a PM.

My 77k miles car is possibly available, I was going to wait until new year but I always said if I found a bit of interest I would sell a bit earlier.
