Many private sellers just give the car a wash & polish without any other fancy stuff.
If the seller is a home trader .... make certain the car is 'straight' before shaking on the deal

Don't take without giving in return
Currently in Renoir White's garage:
Renault Trafic 1.7 Petrol Vauxhall Astra 1.4i & in bits Triumph Bonneville T140E & H-D XLH1200
