Re: Really need advice. Please.

The list you've given us isn't major if.... if you sort out the jobs yourself.
Tyres, couple of hundred.
Brakes, weekend's work, maybe a 100.

But doubt you'll get much change from 500 for the brake work if a garage did them.
Stripping off old pipes and getting new ones made up, then fitting is a pain but is actually quite simple, just time consuming.
It's the time you pay for, materials are relatively cheap.

On any comeback to the seller.
If a trader, Sale of Goods Act gives a measure of protection but after 5 months would need to show more then normal wear and tear.
If a private sale, basically sold as seen, no protection whatsoever.
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
