Going to look at a 147

Hi guys,

Going to look at a 147 in a few days, and just have a few questions.

1) Its the Selespeed model, so on the test drive any pointers to ensure all is ok?
2) Anything I should really be looking out for?

Shes got 98k on atm, and had cambelt changed at 72k - So thats due in another 10k or so?

Also - It has had the lower front suspension bushes changed recently, but still occasionally 'clunks' on uneven roads - Will this just be top bushes, or something more serious?

Cheer for any help you guys can give.

Merry Xmas to me

The usual, full service history, engine oil check because they do drink, 147 have weak electrics so check all works well no bulb warning failures etc. not sure about the front suspension issue mate but good luck.

Clunking is most likely anti-roll bar droplinks.
£25 each (do both) + 1 hr labour.

You can DIY if you have a jack&axle stands.
