Re: Buying Advice

Start it 10 or 20 times and if it fails once, walk away. I had a corroded starter solenoid connector which entailed a lot of work. Take a view about the general condition of the loom in the engine compartment and, further to the water ingress problem, pour a jug of water down the sunroof drains and make sure it comes out from the backs of the wheel arches. If they're blocked the water gets in and rots the fuse box and UCH . Bad news. If it's been garaged, so much the better.
