Does it drive ok? How many miles / owners / keys / inches of service history? Did you get it close to th'asking price?
I actually didn't get the chance to drive it even though I was offered since the car was untaxed and unMOTd - didn't want to chance my license for a £1k car! Esp. being a professional, it might land me some sort of criminal thing on my disclosure
Saying that, engine does sound pretty sweet
Almost as good as the Rex
Kidding... It sounds different, equally as good
Sounds like my mates 350z which is 3.5l so I think it sounds OK?
No warning lights which is always a good sign. Interior is MINT... actually won't belive it was 120k miles. Looking at the current market which is saturated with 100k + GTVs, the interior is basically brand new.
It has 3 owners from new me being the 4th. The first one was an army who the guy said he prob purchased it because didn't need to pay for VAT in germany then sell it in UK. Think he owned it for a few months followed by the 2nd owned who owned it for about 11 1/2 years ? Then this guy who didn't get to drive it much actually. The car has been untaxed since 2010 and brakes haven't been changed and rusted so I think he is genuine enough.
Only 1 key - its the red one as pictured. I think I'm going to buy another one off ebay and get one cut. No brown key but I read that due to the technology now, it is unimportant! Just wondering though, do GTVs comes with a fob to control the central locking/ boot release button? If it does, where and how would I be able to acquire one for the car?
Service history only covered upto 76k miles where all the relevant things done - image attached. Car is now 120k miles. I emailed him before and he said he will not haggle so I just paid the asking price of £1k
What do you guys think about the battery not charging up ? The guy said he has been starting the car almost every weekend and let it heat up for about 30 mins or so even though he doesn't drive it but in the last few weeks, the battery obviously started draining and he needed to jump the car. He also said that the alarm goes off when the car battery is low ?? any ideas ?
