I'm thinking about buying a 155 2.5 V6 purely for selling on, however after looking over it this morning I think it may be a car to keep for a while
I was very impressed with the kit inside, it seemed to have everything.
I have a few questions about the car if you good people wouldn't mind helping me out wink
I'm not sure of the year. It's on an M reg and from what I could see has no Airbag so I'm guessing it's pre 95... Could anyone verify that for me please. I've read reviews saying not to buy anything pre 95 as they have problems....
I take it it has ABS??
It's got a squeaky Alt belt, is this an easy fix for the competent DIY mechanic??
I would also be changing the cam belt, again would this be a job for me to take on??
Is there anything I should be checking for before I buy?? For example known problems like leaks, dodgy electric's, known rust spots etc,. I know the sunroofs are a common fault on these cars. I believe they fall off their runners (this one has) I'm guessing that's an easy enough fix though..
As I said, provided I don't fall in love with this beast of a car (which I can see happening), I'll be selling it on. I'll be paying £300 for it and hoping to sell for a tidy profit. The car needs work (paint/body work, alloys need refurb, badges need replacing), all niggling little problems. But I think I should be able to return her to her to an almost just rolled out of the factory looking car.
So any help would be much appreciated. Some details of the gadgets and spec of this car would also be very helpful, or to be pointed in the right direction of where to find this info wink A ruff guide on what these cars sell for would also be much appreciated. I've searched the auto trader and other similar sites, but these cars seem very few and far between.
Thanks for any help in advance and thanks for reading
