220,000 mile 4.8

Mon Jan 28, 2019 9:58 pm

Thoughts on this as I'm tempted - heart says everything has been replaced by now but head says it's going to be a money pit :headbang:

Lots of service stamps but not alot of reciepts.

Nice clean MOTs

Hmmmmmm

Maybe I should just wait for a normal 4.8 :rofl:

Would depend on price for me. I've never been shy of mileage but it has to be the right price IMO.

Depends on the sort of mileage though if a lot of the mileage is motorway things might actually be less worn than a car with less miles which has been used for short trips around town.

For it's price and condition more than a number on the dash!

If it did get to negotiations I dont think the owner will go below £3800 in all honesty.

From what else is about thats roughly £1200 - £1600 cheaper than the rest so almost a third off.

Main concern if resale which i dont think it would so id have to break it and have no idea what they break for tbh :?

Wouldn't be cheap enough for me to consider at that money TBH, if something like this is only a grand or so more (after negotiating)

On a brighter note though there is a tidy 4.4 up the road, lots of history and friend of a friend.

Not a 4.8 though :fuelfire:

Anyone reckon that all the arches and wheels are out there for sale these days or just wait on a 4.8 ?

Plenty of cheap 4.4’s out there but I’d wait for what you want rather than settling for something and making it look like what you really want! I spent a fair old time waiting for the right carbon black 4.6 to come up, one things for sure - whatever you get you’ll end up pumping some money into it so you may as well take your time.
