    Default Help with buying a car please

    I'm looking at a ford fiesta zetec S 1.6 05 90,500k.
    Car looks good on pictures with 1 minor chip to from bumper, had new cat.
    It's been modified by a vinyl wrap to bonnet and roof. After market alloys and a chrome backbox.
    Also her lowered by 60mm but I would un-lower it.
    There asking 1850.
    Downside is it has no service history and is a 3 hour drive for me.
    I HPI it and it came back fine.
    Is it worth it ?

    Personally, I think that's a bit expensive for a car with that mileage? The fact that it's been lowered, makes me think it's been a "boy racers car" and with no service history? You can pick up a better car for that price, good luck.

    Autotrader have this one listed which is the cheapest to match your spec. If you read the description you will see it has all sorts of problems and is described as tatty with the engine light on.

    So, on paper at least, yours seems cheap enough but as said above it may have been thrashed if a boy racer has owned it.

    This is the next one listed to give you an idea.
