fair enough. Re the 147 there is the usual bushings/suspension bits to look for, especially on a high miler. As Jim just tsaid very important to check for regular oil topups and the variator. MAke sure when you get there to start it from cold. If it sounds like a diesel then like a petrol enigne your variator needs replacing and the whole timing kit probably. Its common also to have the airbag light on but this is very often the connection under the passenger seat loose or a loose connection behind the dash. Is it in a Dublin garage or private sale?
