It's in Brigg so N Lincolnshire, needs work short MOT, I would say offer a lot less if he's a trader it needs to be in a road worthy condition, so I would only turn up in a car with a mate, prepared to walk away if it's rotten!

Looks like a bit of a shed to be honest. Will need quite a bit of time and money sinking into it, but if you’re happy to do it then go for it. It’s very much a project.

I wouldnt know what I was looking at so I appreciate all the advice. I couldnt do the work needed either. Perhaps Buying a mobile shed isnt for me *laughs*

I went to have a look at this about three months ago, think it was £895. The engine seemed ok and the interior a little better than that. The bodywork however.......hmmm.

You can see the poorly filled dent on the boot lid and bits of rust. I think the paint on the front (wings & bonnet) appears to be a different white. Bits of trim were loose or missing and generally it was scruffy.

To be frank, my vehicular knowledge is slim. I particularly want an estate and I would love an R8 so consider that when I say I didn't buy it but bought an BMW 525 estate instead.

By the way, I live about eight miles from this car so will happily go and have a look if there's anything specific you'd like to know. Would even video call whilst am there if it helps. I'll even pick someone up from train station if that helps ha ha.

Appreciate the offer but sounds like its beyond me and my budget to fix it. Im also after an estate as im being made redundant and going to start handyman work for myself.
