Been thinking of posting this here for a while
Went to look at what I thought seemed like a great deal a few weeks ago, taking our prices and our ridiculous VRT (Vehicle Road Tax) rates into account over here in Ireland
Anyway, first of all, I couldnt find a sales guy
Secondly, I went looking and found it stuck in a corner jammed in between all sorts of stuff
Thirdly, it was actually parked so tight to the car in front of it (at a right angle) that the front bumper was pushed in!!
Hmm, hard to see as theres so many other cars crammed up tight to it.... almost walked right away.......Oh!!! The doors are open.....Jump in.... somethings not quite right here.........
Aha! The car was polished up and hoovered out to make it very presentable, BUT, then I dropped the centre armrest console!!!!
It looked RANK!!!! My own car is heading for 100k in the next few weeks. This is "supposed" to have 66,000 miles! The arm rest console was in bits! Looked like it had done 2 or 300,000 miles. Stepped out, shut the door and walked away after another quick outside view (even though it was blocked in all round) when I saw the marks on the doors etc and it also appeared to have had some very bad respray jobs and that was catching a peek between other cars!
Anyway, it got me to thinking..... our buyers guide here....theres very little reference for new buyers for items to watch for
Oh yeah, the gearknob on mine is worn very badly. The one on this was worse (if thats possible!) Also, the steering wheel had a shine off it like it had been polished prefessionally
