    Personally I would not touch with a barge pole, if you are going to repair a cat c properly you would at least respray the wing mirror to make it look good.

    save your money there are a lot of other good examples out there, he is also saying it has the 280BHP engine thought that did not come to the VXR until late last year.

    I'm not going to buy it, i think personally it's a ringer, the chap said it might have been flood damage or fire damage, it's certainly not fire damaged as that would be a CAT F i believe.

    It cost me a fiver, but no harm done, interesting about the 280 model not being out then though, is that right?

    Ask him what damage has been repared on it 2 get an idea how bad it was before it was fixed, it looks fine on the outside but god knows what its like under the body i.e. twisted chasis!

    He said he doesn't know much about it as selling it for a friend apparently and to call back later and he'll let me know, when a mate called him and asked about it in great detail, he said his mate now lives abroad and the paperwork will be sent on once bought!
