Thanks, its a private sale and im looking into getting an inspection, if its too much expensive for me to pay would you have any little bit of advice?
1. pay for a hpi this will cover everything about the cars history and mileage this is a must anyone buying a car these days need to do this, car could be on finance if you buy a on finance car you lose and your money at end of day
2. service history speak to seller ask where it has been serviced ring the garages ask them about the car i always do. treat the seller as someone who wants to get their hands on your money an will say anything to do it, so check everything out before spending your money.
3, check car out for odd tyres the head lining tells a story on nice non smokers cars its always clean and cars that have been abuse treated like a skip the head lining always shows dirt,
4. at 80k i would ask has the dpf been changed yet and has the additive tank been refilled and reset, this is a big bargaining chip, all modern diesels have a dpf filter in the exhaust and additive that raises the temp to keep it clean,,
5, check log bog v5 registration paperwork that it has the persons name who is selling it on it, if not could be a dealer trying to sell a car with no comeback they are legally bound to give warranty for 6 months within the EU.
6 i always ask would they mind if i were to plug it in to a diagnostics just see its all well, if they yes they do mind buyer be ware, i personally dont buy nothing that i cant scan like this.
1.6 hdi engine must have a good oil change history
take the car for a good twenty minute drive at least get it up to running temp and trying everything every switch window everything,
