Should I buy this GT?
I have recently got rid of an RX8 and I think that the GT looks like an interesting proposition.
I have seen one that looks like a good deal but was looking for advice on whether to go for it or not.
It is a 2004 GT diesel in black. It has 169000 miles on the clock which is my biggest concern. The SH is stamped till 116K but was serviced at a local garage at 167k where there was a bit of work done on the suspension. I was out on a test drive and also heard a bit of a knocking sound, like drop links. The car seemed to drive pretty well. All the other inspections seemed OK like no smoke from the exhaust when starting, no gunge in the oil etc etc.
My main concern is the mileage though I am making a bit of an assumption that there were a lot of motorway miles given the mileage hence a pretty easy life.
The car looks in pretty good nick, couldnt even see any rust anywhere.
I reckon that I could get it for about £1600 with a bit of bargaining.
Let me know what you guys think, if it only had 80k I would be in there but the mileage (and the knocking) is a bit of a worry.
