Very pricey considering :

Red coolant - AAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! :shock: :shock: :shock:

Also check out the "cinnamon spotting" around the N/S suspension turret, O/S suspension turret, brake servo and bulkhead in general. Also the scuff mark/dent and rust on the O/S/R wheel arch.

Although it mentions the cam belt being done at 125k (only 29k late! :roll: ) there's no mention of the water pump being changed at the same time. It would appear the PCV system needs a good service as well and a few new gaskets like cam cover, engine side plates etc.

Needs a lot of work to bring up to standard IMHO but looks like a good base to work from. :wink: :D
Cheers,
Dave

That looks like it only had a wash and polish, never a service! let alone an engine bay clean!

Thing is, for less than a ton he could sort those few bits Dean, give the engine bay a clean and sort that scuff on the wheelarch for a bit more and alter the whole look and appeal of it.
