Some things are too good to be true.... I'd steer clear of this one :thumbdown.... Looks clean but looks can be deceiving....

Cat D is minor damage so yes the bumper only, my misses had her 208 rear ended, needed a new boot floor putting in, that was a cat C, that 10 doesn't look a bad buy with the mileage but always has the stigma of being a "recorded" vehicle when you come to sell on, saying that loads of cars like evos have had altercations and are unrecorded lol

Imagine yourself selling this car a few years on - then getting the same annoying questions asked to you. Unless it's a collectible, steer clear.

Sold to Mr Armstrong in Feb 2017 then 2 days later gets bumped then the seller buys it and now back up for sale? You'd be the 3rd owner in 3 months. Not for me I'm afraid.

May be worth while asking for pics of the damage if available? Also I guess he needed to put it in his name to apply for the V5 as once its recorded as damaged the insurance take the car and paperwork.

Pictures of the damage are a must. No pictures no deal. Then check for quality of repairs and check receipts from the garage which did it. I bought damaged cars and drove them for years, of you do the your homework you might bet a bargain. Still, UK market is bizarre in respect of damaged cars and they do bear the stigma. These days you cannot hide it either.

Rule of thumb thumb I use is market value minus 20% or there abouts, as come realise time you WILL struggle to sell.

You guys are all missing the point....it's better than those rubbish FQ300s!!1
:lol: I read that as well, that's at least the 3rd advert I've read in the last few weeks that has said similar tripe.

Glad I bought the RSII260GT. :D

Edited....Den, no it's not worth it.

Thanks everyone, looks like a unanimous no then. I'll keep looking. As a side note, I did ask for pics of the damage, but so far, none have been sent.
