Would you buy this Vel Satis?
Some of you will know that I used to have a Vel Satis (now belongs to my aunt), well I fancy another and I spotted one on the internet.
Asking price is £1150 for a 2003 3.0 dV6 Privilege model. Went to view it today and well... I'm on the fence about it.
Have a look at the pictures. It's a finance repo with 75k and FSH. Nice leather interior as well. Inside is mint, but as you can see, the bodywork is awful. It needs a new bonnet and wing, I reckon, as well as a major repair to the rear wheel arch.
Now luck has it that I know somewhere breaking a silver Vel Satis, so that shouldn't be a problem.
Other issues: The speedometer isn't working (rest of the dials are) and the ABS light is on. Bit of a
whistle at times on the test drive (mine never did this)
Also needs an MOT.
£1150 with no flexibility on price.
Apologies for the rubbish quality photos (taken on iPhone).
