Re: What am I looking for?
How many EL taxis have you seen? they would have done more than 200,000kms.
If you are worried about accident damage -get a panel beater to check the car out prior to purchase. They are better than RACQ/NRMA at spotting repairs. Look for consistancy in the paint colour (fluro lights good for this), look for service history, and actually see what has been done mechanically. look at tyre wear (especially the spare), and stick your head underneath to see if anything looks out of place. Drive it and see if it pulls to one side on the road. Also low kms car is not always better if it has not been regularly serviced.
Panels on an EB are date stamped (I noticed that on the inside of my guards), not sure about EL's though. Date should be prior to manufactured date of vehicle.
