Went to look at this on Saturday, owned by one of the garage mechanics father and he had done all the work on it. Cambelt and variator 18 months ago, oil used in it is the Alfa Selina oil and it doen't use any, the oil looked a bit dirty but not black, started up and sounded nice and smooth. It hadn't been started in three weeks so needed a jump start. Also new exhaust with the stickers still on it, although it looked a cheap patern one. rear and middle at least.
Polybushes fitted 5 years ago, it drove really nicely no knocks or anything, no smoke. Everything worked on it, wipers heater, rear window heater. Didn't check the air con, idled at 800/900 and warmed up in a couple of miles.
It is slightly faded and the rear bumper is a differant colout to the rest of the car but the car was filthy inside and out, interior plastics sratched and hole in the drivers bolster.
How difficult is it to pick up early seats and trim?
It seemed a genuine car but the filthy condition of it put me off, if you don't clean a car do you look after it mechanically?
I am tempted but have a few doubts about it, Im sure it's worth £500 and if it did go bang I'm guessing I could break it for more.
