The listing says it has a 6 speed manual gearbox and that he's had the cambelts changed. It's a diesel! Plus the registration number has been deliberately concealed and with an engine change I'd steer well clear if I were you.

Why the negativity, Simon?

It's approved and the buyer will get an extra long exhaust pipe!

Must be a Parts Bin Friday Special. 6 Speed gear box and a Cam Belt.

Must be OK though as it is "Approved"

However I would be wary of someone who advertises a car that they know nothing about.

It's probably my eyes, but both rear sills look like they could become MOT failure issues very soon, and I'm sure the odometer is reading a lot more than 86K.

Many of the features have been exaggerated. No cruise. No full leather. Therefore may not have powerfolds. In my opinion there is a strong chance you'd be disappointed.

Well spotted! Err, ... it's a single pipe chrome trim, shouldn't a diesel have twin tailpipes?

Also, is that the airbag warning light I see?
