I have recently bought a car from a fellow member and I am sorry to say that it is not quite what it seems!!!!
The link above advertises the car as an immaculate example of a late 155 2.0 super. Can I draw your attention to the 'no dings or dents' expressing the car is washed and polished every week. Upon washing the car this morning I find that the nearside door does not have a colour match, offside bumper has hit a bollard or something similiar and scratched paintwork, nearside skirt has a groove on the top adjoing the door seal. The back bumper has faded paintwork all round.
As i was driving back from Reading to Newcastle I also noticed that the engine will not idle below 2500 revs and when you come to a standstill it corrects itself and revs between 1600-1800.This causes the engine to stutter and you need to change down at 3000. This could just be the lambda sensor. There was no tax on the car, or should I say the tax on the car was from a MERC!!!! There are four new p6000 on the car but they have not been balanced and there is a slight tracking problem, minor problem however on a long journey very uncomfortable.
To top it off the guy ripped out the 'silver sony cd/mp3' so I had to sing showtunes all the way home.
On the plus side the car interior is unmarked and extremely comfy. The car opens up and goes like a train and has one of the best engine notes I have heard from a non v6. I did get picked up from London Heathrow and driven to the car, the person who picked me up actually worked for the garage trying to sell the car and I never actually met the elusive Mr Jackson. I suspect this was a trade ad disguised as a private seller and on the whole I feel duped and taken for a mug.
The problems I have encountered should have been made aware to me on buying the car as I consider this site to be of reputable, honest people. The car certainly was not as perfect as described.
I have since called the person and as such I have had no reply.
