Newbie: Potential 159 Owner

Hi all,

Apologies if I have posted this in the wrong section.

As the title says I'm a potential 159 owner but need some help advice. I've been looking for an new car and have got my heart set on the 159 2.4

I chose the 2.4 as it seems to be the more reliable from reading reviews.

I'm going to be looking at a black 159 lusso 2.4 with Red leather interior (apparently mint inside and out) 2006 plate with 73k on the clock, full service history. Extras are 19inch Alloys (not alfa) and remap (250bhp)

This is up for 5,500 but after doing a price check with Auto Trader, Parkers and a couple of others, the valuation for private sale comes up at roughly 4,300.

If I like the car, I'm going to have to make an offer but I don't want to offend the guy by trying to knock him down 1,200.

So I guess I'm trying to gauge, what would be a reasonable amount to offer?

Thanks in advance and as first post please be gentle
