I'm reliably informed that it's been doing the rounds for a while (on Autotrader) with a fluctuating price tag. It's certainly a 2 grand car I'd say.

It's a shame such a low mileage car has the rear badges paint worn off, no valve caps, front no. plate badly worn and front seats not quite as immaculate as suggested. Just looks like they have had seat covers on and now removed (very dirty round the seat frame / adjuster wheels). Obviously if it has the FSH suggested then the mileage must be genuine but I do have a car with twice as many miles that looks twice as clean as this one. I would expect an immaculate engine bay but no pictures to confirm. :? Personally I would be double checking the provenance of this before parting with nearly 3k.

For nearly £3k I'd expect a rear numberplate that wasn't made by a total monkey too! For that money I'd be expecting perfection, even on a 16v.

For 3K I'd be expecting a waitress to meet me at the gate holding a plate of Ferrero Rocher chocolates stacked into a neat pyramid. :)

It seem to have a lot of dings up n down. Not worth so much IMHO

Actually now, having looked at it on my 27" screen as opposed to my iPhone - I can say this car - if it has only done 34k miles - hasn't had a particularly cosseted life and shows wear on the interior seats/steering wheel etc and exterior (the badges and number plates really are pretty rough)... although it appears to have good tyres (Klebers).... But you're right. It's not a close-to-£3k BX... shame because I feel a bit churlish and negative; there is a good car there (one would hope) that just needs a bit of help to shake off the years. Seeing the engine bay and boot would help.

looks to be a worrying amount of rust inside the drivers door shut on the front of the 'b' post, unless it's a trick of the light.

I think that is the light, but look at the rubber door seal :-O
