No problems Elp, I appreciate all input
The reason I asked about miles, is a dealer within sensible distance, offering a 2001 1.8 veloce, leather interior FSH 1 owner, but 86k miles, priced accordingly for the mileage, and supplied with 1 year warranty as standard, I was just deciding if it was worth looking at, the mileage is off-putting as I want to keep it for 5 years.
There is a 1.8,1 owner, 30K example close-ish too, but its solid red, not really my colour, and no leather interior, which I would like, but isn't esential.
(well I'll rephrase, I would like leather as long as it isnt red or tan
Weather and time permitting, I have a 2.0 veloce to look at thursday, 42K, no leather, and is a selespeed, I have heard both sides of the coin regarding the selespeed transmission, and thought I would see if I like it or not, the gear change delay is one thing that is putting me off, as well as potential expense if anything fails.
Most cars I have/am considering are at dealers for 2 reasons, easy part ex of my old car, and some warranty ..... but I havent ruled out private sales totally.
