Firstly I would like to say cheers to those who replied on the post I wrote yesterday - CHEERS!
I feel that it is only right that I let you know how I got on. The first Willy that I went to see in maidstone (103k) was ok! No rust but the front bumper had all the paint peeling off, interior was A1, 3 owners last one being a car company who had it for the last 3 years. The guy said that it had a full service history, but from 68,000 - 90,000 no histyory ? What put me off was when the guy gave me the keys to start her up there were about 7 different keys anyway started her up and she sounded Ok, no black smoke ticked over quietley but the guy said no test drive unless i had the money to do deals - I said LATER ( he wanted 3995)
Second car I went to see was in sevenoaks - Oh what a bad example the poor thing must have been thrashed from day one, half history smokey rough on idel and the fan didint even come on - was talking to the guy while she was running - told him Id be back (78,000) £4995
The third one that I went to see was in Halstead, Essex. When I got there the car was off getting valeted so unable to see it. The dealer was nice and friendly -seemed like a nice bloke - its a willy 1 (no.248 i htink) private plate, full service with all bills 60,000 3 owners last one being a lady - he said no rust , no accident damage etc. Told me to phone him today to arrange a test drive on saturday.
That was it and I managed to fit in my law lecture and tutiorials at uni. Off to see one in romford today - willy 3 68,000 1 owner FRSH £5295. and there is also a couple in Ashford for sale have to see how much time I have today.
Hard work looking for a car!!!!
