Well I went and had a look today.
I was keen from the ad but after having seen the car and meeting the dealer, no go.
My concerns were numerous.
1) I'm 90% sure its had a fairly major accident on the rear. There is a distinct crease running across the rear ahead of the tail lights where the paint goes from the ripple carbon fibre pattern to a flat metal surface. It was my understanding (though i'm no expert) that the whole rear end was a carbon fibre shell.
I've attached a photo here. Looking at the reflection of the overhead light, the underlying carbon weave creates a ripple pattern in the light. However half way long, the pattern changes to a smooth flat metallic surface, and the reflection is true.
From another angle you can see the crease.
Its alot more visible in person.
2) The seat bolsters have A LOT of wear. My car has 45,000 km yet the seats look 1/4 the age of these. For a car with 21,000 km, it looks suspicious. The interior switches are very worn, some you can't even see what the icon originally was. Again, maybe my cars the exception, but none of my switches look anything like this.
3) The logbooks report only 5 services ever from new. The dealer says the car was bought and operated in ML yet all servicing was done in BN and from 2008, Sydney. Further, the car has only done 500km in the last 8 years? And why is the logbook sticky taped together with pages floating all over the place. Something doesn't ad up.
4) Why is the thing for sale in possibly the dodgiest looking dealership I have ever been to. Weatheril Park, filled with Queen St racing cars and their owners.
Anyway, maybe I'm being a bit precious about the whole thing, and maybe I'm completely wrong. But I've learned to trust my gut so I'll be steering clear.
Andre has some better pictures that he'll post up when he gets home.
