A little harsh maybe?
What I do expect from a car with a week old MOT is to not find serious MOT failures. I've taken it to get a second opinion and they say...
Front Suspension : Needs doing, judgement call from the MOT tester, strict MOT test place would have failed it.
Front Discs : In seriously bad shape to the point of being dangerous, he couldnt see any honest MOT tester in their right mind passing it.
Rear Shocks : Tho not obviously leaking they were doing nothing, they might as well have not been attached.
Well the seller is refusing to do anything, I'll send some bad feedback his way, VOSA will be informed about the garage and I'll be borrowing some tools to see what I can fix
The visible bodywork is in beautiful shape, interior is spotless apart from some wear on the drivers leather seat. As long as nothing catestrophic goes wrong with it I think it will be a bit of fun and somewhat of a learning experience
I've not even changed brake pads since I was 19 so attempting the shocks and front discs may stretch me a little
(Computer Geek... If anyone wants their computer fixing in exchange for Alfa Fixing we could strike a deal!!)
