Agree One Double Six, I would change everything unless I had proof of when things were last done.
Pristine low mileage is good, and what I always hope to get, but just because it's pristine and low mileage doesn't mean it doesn't need a lot of money spending. In this case, if is has no history as someone postedit needs to be treated as in need of all sorts doing; mechanical bits sieze up, rubbery bits degrade, fluids go manky.
When Clive talks about preparing cars to showroom standard you can easily understand where the money needs to be spent and why the price of the car can then be significantly higher than a unprepared car in a private sale.
