Thanks Saz9961. I've pretty much made my mind up on the one from Andrew. Just gotta work out how to get it down. I will reach out to him.

Would you take the plunge in my position?

I would have no issues buying off Andrew. Hopefully you have got tons of extra photos.

Ultimately, only you can decide whether you want it. White cars can look pretty bleak looking sitting in a yard, but I see them as a bit of a blank canvas, depending on what you intend to do.

You should check on insurance on this model, to make sure it does meet your expectations.

Getting it back; there are delivery services. The average cost from Scotland might be between £200-300

Andrew is pretty much just over the Border. Not exactly Inverness!

Easy train form Essex, wee coach ride to his premises...maybe a cab to finish it.

Would not be surprised if he nipped along to collect you.

Have dealt with him for several years.....very honest and frank.

You'll be safe.

Andrew doesn't sell poor cars.




Fair enough, ive just got to work out a way of getting to scotland or getting the car to essex.



Just a couple of things to say:-


I don't think the car from Andrew is in its prep'd state (i.e. I would expect him to smarten it up). I'm sure he would also deal with any issues you were unhappy with.


If I were you I would have that conversation with him and get a full appraisal of the condition over the phone. If acceptable arrange a flight (when the car is ready).


Fly up...enjoy a great drive back.

Looks a good honest car, spot welds visible on the rear arches and no concerns on the MOT history, corrosion-wise.

I'd be tempted to look into a one-way hire car if you decide to go and buy. I did this a few years ago when I went to Barnstaple to pick up a vehicle; took a few hours but more convenient than waiting around at airports and having to stick to flight times etc.
