Opinions please - 159 for sale
I've been after a 159 2.4 TI for a while now but there's little around within reasonable driving distance and I haven't (yet) become desperate enough to drive 150+ miles each way. However, I came across one on eBay the other week - local, which started at £7500 and ended at £7700. It was however, relisted a few days later (apparently the winning bidder failed to sell his car so couldn't afford this one) and it failed to sell the 2nd time.
Black, 19" TI Alloys
MOT until Nov 2012 (passed, no advisories)
Pictures show it in excellent condition, but I haven't viewed yet
It is a CAT D... owner says seats and alloys were nicked (no damage done - door was apparently unlocked). I did an HPI check and it confirms CAT D mid 2009, also 4 owners. No other issues.
What do people think? Price / mileage / owners? I talked to him about viewing on Saturday, and think I could probably get him down to around £7000. Does this seem all too good to be true or does that sort of price reflect CAT D and mileage, etc.
Also, I googled the reg and found and old post on here where it was brought up, so if anyone recognises it or owned the car, please get in touch... HJ57 RZE.
I was also slightly dubious (perhaps unfairely!) as it is based in Ilford, Essex - which from my experiences doesn't have a brilliant reputation for car crime, etc. Is it worth a view? - and if so what to look out for?
I know I've asked a lot of questions, but thanks in advance for any input.
EDIT:: And for what it's worth - about 200+ (100%) eBay feedback
