hi , inner steering arm wear is a common fault on these , as is split in coolant bottle , leaking oil cooler pipes , also check that the independant heater controls are working, just about all the vel satis i have worked on have this problem in its life.
they are lovely motors to drive though , very comfortable and responsive.
just make sure it has full history of oil and filter change at correct time/mileage intervals.
