Buying a Cooper * please help*
Just joined the forum for some advise.
Looking at buying my girlfriend a Cooper as she has always wanted one plus her car has also been stolen.
The one in question is a 2002 Cooper with 96k miles on the clock, MOT to end of year and no tax.
I've been speaking to the guy and unfortunately he doesn't have a service book belonging to it but thinks he has all the MoT letter confirming it's always been on the road (still doesn't tell me if car has been looked after)
I'm most likely going to view and possibly buy tonight however, I am not to sure about said year and high mileage for a petrol
I know my way around a car pretty well so hoping any of you kind people would know where to look specially at this year and model OR in your opinion is it not worth it?
Reason I'm drawn to it is he claims he is leaving for Australia and is priced it to sell at £1800, similar coopers that age have 120-130k miles and are still around the £2500-3000 mark!
Hope anyone can provide with some good advise
