Andy, I think someone on the forum went to view this and it’s got quite a few issues. Iirc, flappy paddles not working and a few other things and he would only sell it as a trade sale, no warranty. It’s dropped a grand since then.

I know it’s a small thing but at the time I commented every wheel is dirty as they’ve not bent down to clean the bit they couldn’t see and it’s also a long time since I’ve seen hammered on external wheel weight which are also on every wheel. I initially thought it was a crack/buckle on the first picture I saw.
Currently Zedless 4 more sleeps until our Misano Blue M40i arrives :D

You have to accept used cars often have issues to sort :( would need to be more serious than the above to put me off providing the price was reflective of the marketplace .
The alternative of course is to pay £6k-£8k more for a AUC car that may or may not have niggles too .
These cars are heading for 10yrs + & multiple owners , each one has to be viewed & considered individually .

I agree at that age they have to be viewed and considered individually and that’s what the guy did.

He said after viewing and the issues that it didn’t feel 100% right to him so he walked away.

Dropped about a grand since then so probably a better deal with the money available to address the issues :thumbsup:

I dont think they are wheel weights, it looks like the wheels have rim protectors on them and the bit that looks like a weight will be the joining piece. So possibly every wheel is scuffed and these are covering the damage :lol:

Ahhh, that’d make more sense :oops:

But as you say may be covering a multitude of sins :lol:
