Need advice - To buy it or not
Hey guys, i'm in the market for a decent daily car that is just that little bit special. I've found a 185kw EL XR8 for sale with the manual box (a must have.)
Anyways, the thing is dirt cheap (i'm talking only $6k), bloody awesome condition and looks the goods. There's always a catch and in this case it has 300 thousand on the clock. Hence why it's 50% the price of a low km one.
What i'm wondering is what you guys think of the idea? He claims both donk and box feel strong, but 300k is scary. Having said that, $6k is chicken feed for a nice car....
If something is likely to go wrong with it at this many km's (engine) what will it be?
Alternatively what sort of $ am I looking at for a replacement engine (prefer AU series if possible?) Or will it have more issues than just engine/box in the near future?
