Hi All,

First post. Am interested in joining the C6 fraternity. In looking have come across this.

Does anyone know anything about this car?

It's been discussed on the Facebook group page and is supposedly not far from where I live but I have never seen it on the road.

The MOT history (via DVLA MOT check) shows some strange mileage recording and history of suspension issues........

'Low Mileage' isn't a guarantee that the car won't need work and could end up costing several £1,000's to repair.

e.g. Because of it's age alone, it will need the timing belt, water inlet tanks etc. changing if not already done.

There are cars out there albeit with higher mileage that will (for me personally) be a better prospect at half the asking price.

For me, the advert 'blurb' raises real concerns and this one is a case of 'buyer beware'.

Thanks C6_Dave. I agree it did feel oversold. Just started scanning the market but hope to join the fraternity soon.

Personally, for me, that car wouldn't even get a look in due to it's cosmetic changes. I was going to say "enhancements" but couldn't bring myself to type it...

The boot looks like the inside of a coffin.
