I risked it in the end, got back without a problem. (naughty I know, but it will be taxed tomorrow)
Drives and feels good, power steering seems a bit stiff, will check fluid tomorrow, and it pulls slightly to the right.
Had a good look through the service history and receipts. Had a full service just over 1000 miles ago, all the services are main dealer.
New rear suspension arms at the rear, new discs and pads at the rear, new sports back box fitted.
So it might be a bit of a good buy this. (fingers crossed!)
Bloody windscreen wiper fell off tonight though
