Hmmm Buying a 147

Hi - Im on my second 156 at the moment and have been very happy with them both.
Im buying my Mrs a 147 (1.6 TS 2004) this week.
Been to see it and its a nice motor, drives well and has the service history etc and has just had the cambelt and service done. she really likes it, far far nicer than any other car in that class/size price range. Its a private sale - bloke seems a decent sort but just want to check everything is above board.

When I go back to put a deposit on it tonight and have a second look what should I look for?

Where are the engine and chasis numbers located - is there anything else i should be checking for on the legals side ? Do these number appear on the logbook as well ?

Also anyone have advice on having a decent HPI check done at a fair price ?

Any advice from anyone more than welcome - and hopefully she will by next week be welcomed into the Alfa fold.


156 1.6 t/s
Year 2000

Make sure there is no money owed on the vehicle, might be worth paying for a proper check.
