    Nor me! ££££ (Rears done; fronts to be finished.)

    I'm sure Shiltech would - they're selling the car And I suggested Tim Walker.

    Gears hard to select, needs investigation is unlikely to be £174. Might be that to investigate, certainly won't be to fix. Might be a little more to fix or a lot more to fix. I'd want to know what the snag is a box rebuilds on cars of this era are neither unheard of or cheap.

    Exactly... that's the bill for them to give you a bill in order to fix what is wrong.

    That "PPI" does look quite light, as others have mentioned.

    I also see what Mod means about all amber items being red - how can such and sush being inoperative be amber? You canít get much more red than the thing doesnít work. Well, I guess it might not be there but you take my point.

    Iím not saying donít go for it to the OP, far from it, this may be the car for you. But that PPI isnít pricing up all the work. Take all those ambers, get actual quotes for the work including labour, add it to the price of the car - thatís the actual cost. Having done this with a 348 I promise you the cost to address all those items will be more than on those sheets.

    And I still donít really like Ďsnag with the gearbox - £174 to roll the dice......í If youíre reasonably certain this is the car for you pay them the £174 to investigate and ask for a quote to put it right. If they come back with it needs a box rebuild at £5000 (or whatever it is), go back to the seller and say you want the price of the rebuild off the asking price.

    When I did similar when buying my car I got all the work quoted and used the cost of work that had to be done as a bargaining chip when negotiating the price. Stuff I just wanted to get done I just wanted to know the cost but didnít put it against the cost of the car.
