Changed my mind - Now buying my first GTV v6
I've seen a 96 N reg ph1 GTV 2.0 TS for sale locally at £3,400.
It's in good condition with FSH and 70k miles. It looks as if it's been well looked after and there's documentary evidence of a new cam belt and variator. There's no suspension clunks front or rear to suggest shot bushes and the car idles and accelerates linearly so I hope there's no Air Flow sensor problems. It's not been resprayed, though under neon street lights the bumbers look a noticeably different colour to the rest of the car. Could that be because they're plastic? Half leather interior.
I think he'll sell it for about £3k and wonder if this is a fair price to pay. It seems like a very nice car.
Any comments/help with what to look for greatly appreciated.
As an aside I'm 6ft so the head room's a bit tight and noticed straight away the "letter box effect" looking/peering through the windscreen. How does everyone else over 5ft10 manage with this or is it just something you learn to live with?
