I am very close to buy this one. Had a few good conversations with the dealer and will visit next week to check the car. Only one previous owner, originally came from Italy. Tires like new. http://www.autoscout24.eu/Details.as...000&asrc=fa|fs
I have asked him about the usual suspects I am aware of on the 456m:
- Belt and tensioner
- Engine Mounts
- Radiator Hoses
- Rear Suspension Spheres
- Fuel Pump rubber mounts
- Check fuse box for any heat damage
- CAT Temp sensors (check CEL lights)
- Alarm system
- Rear Shock Absorbers leaking
- Belt change
- Stone chips
He says he is very confident in the condition of the car and will do the full 20.000 km service for me incl. belts and transport it down to my home town if I decide to go for it. Seems keen on building long term relationship, happy to pick up the car and take it to his shop (500km away) for service if I ask to etc. Heard good things about the place in general so far.
Car will get full independent review from Dekra (Largest German inspection company) as well before delivery.
What do you think? Any comments? Am quite excited, but also not necessarily in the hurry. This seems like a good opportunity though and I want a 456m GT in TdF with either dark or beige interior.
I will probably leave it in garage for a while as I am working abroad at the moment, so any comments on how to best keep it in good condition appreciated.
