Hi All, sorry but I really need some helpful advice, I am dying to get a 159 now.
link broken, so found direct link to dealer site... so pasting blurb below too.
2006 (06 reg)
great price no?! almost too good to be true.
So I saw this car just now, sadly not full fsh, and the history is a strange one:
has service records for 2008, 2009 and 2011, only 4000miles in that 18months 09>11, elderly man, health issues is the story...
is that ok for a diesel? and the oil was completely clean...! cleaner than in my petrol, garage say 'nope, last service was 2011, I know the guy, car has been standing since, I can ring and ask if you like?'
belts and pump done at 2011
new front tyres too, new batt as standing. new rear brakes, beyond this no clue of 2006-2008
*odd thing, oil on 2009 says magnatec 10w40... thats what I just put in my 1.6 petrol?!
and the next one had 5w40 selenia...
generally seems ok condition, few chips on bonnet, 3 are brown... a couple of dents, fair for the price I suppose...
all engine bay screws are corroded.
the engine bay looked too clean? is the third I've seen, but the other two were grotty.
he refused to let me test drive it!!! very odd! 'buy it, if you don't like the drive I'll pay you back same day...' Riiiiiiiiiiight... BUT TEMPTED!
I'm off to bed so can't reply until 1am most likely but I'm just so stumped??? I'm on a budget hence going for cars this cheap.
thanks for reading. sorry for the length of info
