I have taken it for a small drive, which it sounded lovely, very quiet, and felt quite 'nippy' when setting off. The brakes were fine and nothing untoward was heard.

Thank you for your comments!
I don't mean to sound patronising, but do you have anyone with car knowledge that could possibly go with you to take a look? I'd hate you to get taken for a ride and end up paying out as soon as you buy it.

Phase 1 coupe's were until 1999 when they gave it a facelift - you will notice they change slightly. The dreaded IDE engine was associated with the phase 1 cars from what i can gather.
