Evening gents

Can I get a little buying advice here please?

Xtreme and in particular Ian seem really genuinely decent blokes and a pleasure to deal with thats for sure:thumbup:

I spent the morning with them today and came within 300 of striking a deal.....but on to my questions(nagging doubts),maybes I'm setting my expectations too high perhaps?

How much wear n' tear do you consider acceptable on a 3yr old car?

This one has the laquer flaking or peeling off all 4 calipers and the bonnet ideally needs a repaint due to the unavoidable stone chips..all of which Xtreme have offered to put right

Theres a slight mark on the passenger seat leather part,a minor mark on a rear wheel,mis-matched f/r tyres and all the wiper arms have weathered which overall detracts from the cars overall appearance and suggests to me that perhaps someone didn't take all that much care about it?

..as for the service history,the first 1000 mile stamp is missing(is this even a scheduled service time?)so the 1st was done at 4k and the rest is from non-Ralliart approved Mitsubishi Dealer:confused:

Thanks for anymore replies,I've removed the original link for the car as I have no intention of offending Xtreme or putting off any other potential buyers.It's prolly just me being too damn fussy:D

thanks,Jon

when you say non approved ralliart dealers it could be a specialist. To be honest I would rather my car done by a specialist than a approved dealer. I think a lot of people on here would agree.

no,an official Mitsi dealer but not with the Ralliart approval bit

is it a 2006 or 56 plate ??
whats the mileage ?
could it be of improper use of cleaning chemicals by previous owner/s
how did the car feel on test drive ?

took me 8 months to find mine when i seen it and drove it i knew it was just the 1 if you have a strange feeling or doubt stay away mate its a lot of money to lose

I went up to extreme when i was looking for my 8. What they described as a mint FQ340 had dinks and dents all over it and everything else in there looked a bit tatty. Look privatley youll get a much better deal.

Blimey, you'll be the Elmer that I remember from S.net all those years ago, met you when I sold you a part, or bumped into you at the Halfords at Locks Heath or summat....if you're gonna be as fussy about your new Evo as you were with your Scoobs, you should end up with a minter!

Good luck with the search.

Lol, yeah, still that big Geordie bloke, I'm O.K, lot better since I got the Evo.:).

I'll probably spot you if you get an Evo, give us a heads up if you see a black 8 with black wheels in Hamble area.
