Looking at an ad for a GTV V6 which look interesting . There's a couple of things listed on the description which have made me a bit concerned so would appreciate some advice before I contact the buyer (maybe he's on here
Says cambelt, tensioners, belts and water puper all changed on 3/10 but then 3 months later:
"Headgasket - both skimmed with all gaskets and sundries, plus another belt (06/10 @79k)"
Can anybody shed more light on this? Should I be worried & are there other questions I would ask in light of this?
"HPI clear - although it will show a recent plate change as I have removed my personal plate and also it was imported at date of manufacture."
Its RHD so guess I need to make sure its a UK spec car? Anything else I should check in light of this? I'd do an HPI anyway.
Maybe it affects insurance? Although I bought a 2nd hand Golf GTI around 6 years ago from a VW main dealer which was a RHD import from Malta and they said never mentioned it, I 1st saw it on the reg document
IIRC I never mentioned it my the insurers (mind you never made a claim duing my ownership so maybe I was lucky).
Any views greatly appreciated.
