Re: veloces of london - scoop deal
Even if these cars have been sat in a hot climate for a couple of years, this is not going to have caused any damage.
I would definitely change the oil, and probably for peace of mind rather than need, have a thorough once over carried out - the pre delivery inspection would probably be adequate.
New cars can often be quite old by they are first registered; for example:
1) the last 3 "brand new" MG Rovers were sold at auction last month - they were built in March/April 2005.
2) I bought a "brand new" Nissan Sunny a good few years ago; a Japanese built for the Cypriot market that, for whatever reason, never sold and ended up over here. The car was 3yrs 8months old when I had it registered new! It never missed a beat, ever.
Those 156's are seriously stylish motors for peanuts; just get a warranty to be on the safe side.
