These cars tend to have a few owners, seems like one or two years ownership and they sell them on.

The reg number does look familiar to me but I cant think why :?

They are usually bullitproof, things to check are Vanos noises and the boot under the carpet where the spot welds can pop due to the Diff mount, for the asking price I would expect no issues at all.

Welcome to the Forum :wink:

If it was Katie's it had some fancy audio kit in including door cards which they swapped back to OEM.

Spotted Katies old car on a drive in Romford today, previously there was a Black M parked.
