The fact that one of the sellers (not necessarily the owner) sells parts for a living would make me do a thorough check that the car hasn't been and repaired.

Have you done an online check for MOT and insurance cover for the car?

Caveat Emptor - Buyer Beware
Thank you for your comments.

I wasn't able to find this model in the wisebuyers website.

The MOT is running out soon but they told me they will renew it before selling the car, I have done an HPI check and everything was clear. I tried to check the MOT's using the logbook reference but it didn't work, I have just asked them to check the reference number that I have to see if I copied it wrong.

The car look good, a did a visual inspection of the "gaps" in the boot and hood and they were symmetric.

Perhaps before going ahead with the buy is should take it to the dealer for an assessment? Do you know if garages usually provide that service?
