Im off to have a look at one tomorrow for a guy at work. Its a 2002 4 door sport with 90k on it.

He has zero car knowledge and just wants someone who knows at least a bit to take a look at it.

Is there anything that i should look out for?

Call Russ or his misses, Sunny :whistle:. Guy at wotk had one from new to 50K miles. Apart from servicing & tyres it was 100% reliable and nothing went wrong :thumb:

Get on the appropriate web forum and look at the FAQ's on it. :thumb: You'll only get snippets here. Russ should help if he's not too busy.

They do look good value these don't they. Not that I've looked recently you understand. Do these have the dreaded run-flats?

Let us know how you get on Ian :thumb:

If there is a local bee em specialist, it might be worth getting it checked over if you find one you like. The garage down the road from me charges an hours labour. Seemed fair.
