Message for Vel Satisfied

Hello there, i'm new to the forum and joined to gain knowlege and information about the Vel Satis i'm about to buy.

It's a 2.2DCi Privilage, we've been looking for one for ages and they are few and far between so cant be too fussy but anyway this one is a high miler, over 100,000 but theis is reflected well in the price. Its spected up with leather and satnav, has FSH, was only 1 owner from new (Renault Finance) and is generally in good condition.

I have left a deposit and the garage is making the car ready to drive after its been in the show room for a couple of months.

The problem is that they cant seem to get the stereo/satnav system working. They are reluctant to send it to Renault due to the high cost of diagnostics and so are trying to get is sorted out using renault specialists or something.

Anyway its taking a while now and i'm just wondering is its still worth getting the car if everything else works and trying to get it fixed later. The car is only 6000 and theres nothing else about at that price?

Is this problem caused but the battery being flat for so long? They had to put a jump pack on it to get it started and the dashboard said there was a fault with the handbrake which is electronic. I know these cars are very reliant on battery power so i would assume this was the cause of the problem.
Currently in jamesyboy5593's garage:
Scenic II 1.9DCi Privilege, Fiat Coupe 20v Turbo, VW Eos 2.0 TFSI DSG, Gilera Nexus 500 scooter.
