    Good morning guys and gals,

    I'm new on here and have a tread in the intro section saying Hi..

    There is a car I'm keen on in London but I live in Edinburgh so it's a long haul to view. It's the right colour / engine combo for me and a bit rare I think, ticks my boxes.

    I was wondering if any of you guys or gals might have some spare time to look it over on my behalf? If it is as goos as the seller says it is I'll pop a deposit on it and collect it next weekend, failing that I'll just get a flight down next weekend if the car is still available and view it myself amdif it's no good get another flight back up...

    Would be greatly apricated and beer tokens will be shared :D

    The AA do a car inspection service. It's not that expensive but it would be comprehensive.

    I have to say I never use anyone but me to look at cars, but I wouldn't want the responsibility of looking for someone else... And I'm not near London anyways.

    If you're serious about the car I'd have a look at this. Try and agree with the seller to go 50/50?

    :)

    AA check is pretty costly from £142, over £200 for a 2.8 Z3... It's cheaper to do it myself hahaha... anyhow last time I looked at getting one of these inspections done on an Esprit they said it they had slots in 12 days time, not ideal as I'll need to collect it next weekend if im getting it as I'm away after that... It's no biggie if nobody is available before then to hav a gander :)

    Hi Mark
    Welcome to the forum from me.
    I live in Walton on Thames and work in Wimbledon.
    Whereabouts is the car located? If it is near me I might be able to help with a cursory inspection.
    Let me know.
    Metal Mickey alias Mike.
