    Default Car Purchasing Tips?

    Ok Off to view a Signum Tmrw.
    It is up for £3k on an 04 Plate with 42k
    Design Spec in Dark Blue
    I have managed to 'lend' some money off my parents so i can sell vectra after Christmas once i have removed plate, wheels and dvd players.

    Question is, do i offer less and on what basis as i am walking in with cold hard cash (this is if the Signum is in good condition)

    What tips can i use, just ask for some money off, or find some faults and chp away personally i think its cheap already so will he budge

    I'd say that's a bit too cheap , be careful.
    And be sure to get a hpi check etc , to warrant mileage.
    Check the last mot mileage , see if it tallies.

    although its a lovely looking car for its age & price, its like that for a reason. Think with the head tomorrow mate, especially if you can;t afford to buy a lemon and soak it up

    Say you only have £2500 and be prepared to walk away if it checks out...

    Does it come with any warranty?

    Looks a very nice car indeed mate but as the others have said be a bit wary eh? Obviously make sure you give it a da*m good checking over, inside, underneath, boot, tyres, engine etc etc etc AND don't forget you want a really good test drive in it. IF it's what you want then go in with the £2500 cash offer, you've nowt to lose. He/She is gonna want more but see what they say first. If they say £2750 and it's yours then meet 'em half way with your final final offer of £2600. Play around a bit with him/her (err..not like that lol) and i'm sure or at least i hope you'll drive away a very happy chappy!
    Worst case scenario is they're only gonna budge by a few quid...then it's still down to you as to what you wanna do. Whatever happens, the very best of luck with it!
