    Thumbs up Help, advise on buying a 360 spider

    Hi everybody

    I am looking at a certain 360 for sale in a Keighley Garage. Its a 2001 spider and its up for sale at 35,000-00.
    It was once owned by Jamiroquai (dont no if thats a good or bad thing)
    Does anybody know the car and its history and would it make a good buy?
    Thanks in advance
    Neil

    1st bit of due diligence would be to have a Google search of the Dealer before thinking about the specific car.

    That's not a lot of money for a 2001 car regardless of colour! You will want to get it checked out before you pony up your hard earned!

    Bit late now but was a big thread on this either here or pistonheads, here from memory around 2 weeks ago.

    IMHO any cars at the bottom end of the price spectrum aren't a good buy.

    Remember that this car was 110-120k when new (top end of that if F1), prices to fix it will be commensurate with that price, and repairs even more likely with higher miles. A good dealer is key if going at this end of the market, plus deep pockets.

    Right, so we should all rush out and spend 50k at a dealers knowing they paid 35k for it yeah ? as opposed to sourcing same car from same private or even trade seller ourselves.

    Im not refering to this car in particular, and as per my previous posts it appears in the pictures badly painted and 2 different colours, but please dont assume that by paying top whack you get a top car.

    Thanks for the advise. The garage it's in has a very bad reputation on the Internet so I think I'll keep my hard earned cash and save up a bit more!
    Last thing I want is to lose my life savings on a car that's not sound and I have to agree that it's too cheep for what it is.
