    Default Things that put you off buying a car.

    People think im fussy, as things like badly kurbed alloys or battered keys put me off buying a car. Are you the same with cosmetics.... would badly kurbed wheels and chewed keys put you off! Or the odd trolley dent. Lol.

    Major interior wear and tear, like dodgey steering wheels and handles etc... Also lifting the bonnet and being greeted by dirty engine bays...

    If it had a Vectra badge on the back that would put me off lol

    No on a serious note if its done more than 80k miles if the paint on the front bumpers are flaking off, dont like stone chips on the bonnet, dont do any with large dents, dont like damaged alloys. Hence why i tend to buy brand new
