Ok guys I went to look at this today.
Firstly I was offered £1K for my Fiat Coupe as part ex, which is kind of what I was expecting, however I really can't take that much of a hit, so I'm going to try and sell the Fiat Privately, with my asking price adjusted accordingly
Anyway, back to the car. There is no record of the Cambelt ever being changed, however the dealer did state that he wouldnt sell it without the cambelt being done and it was included within the selling price (£3680)
The car in general looked OK. However there were a couple of things that stood out for me, firstly, only one key (The red one) I was assured this wasnt an issue however the buyers guide states different. Is this a similar situation as the Fiat Coupe? A lot of people believe the code key is essential for the Fiat, but infact it's not?!
Bodywork / Paintwise all seemed OK. Only one thing that stood out slightly is that the drivers door or wing was slightly missaligned at the bottom, I assume the wing may be slightly out? Apperently the front bumper had also been resprayed at some point.
The drivers door trim was adrift from the door. Probably as easy fix, but still quite obvious. Also the rubber seal on the lower b post was coming away.
The last MOT had a few advisories on, these being corroded rear springs, and slightly more worrying was corrosion in centre of the car. Now this must be an issue or the MOT tester was slightly over zealous perhaps? Are there any spots prone to rust?
Small few thing like broken aerial etc, wheels all look OK, shod with what looked to be budget tyres.
I suppose I'm being very fussy, especailly at this price point, but still I think I'll continue the search. Will probably make a decent car for someone, maybe me If I could sell the Fiat privately.
