And that really hurts to say that too
wow that’s brutal! I’ll make sure I run any potential purchase by you guys!!

There is rust on the rear arches and the stone protector trim has been removed from the arches as well.

If that car is perfect then mine must have just rolled off the production line.

I’d avoid that example and save up a couple more grand to get a much much better example, they are out there, just need to be ready to buy when it comes up for sale.

It is Tegiwa that run that Facebook page, look a little closer, I'm not saying Tegiwa are actually selling the car just using Facebook to sell parts. That link goes directly to them.

Facebook is full of adverts as is this place so it's not really news is it.

I would be checking the offside front wing for colour match to the rest of the car and the wheels will need refurbishment, other than that I would be doing the usual used car checks. I also note no photos of the interior are available which will give you a good indication of past use. If it has a matching set of quality tyres then It's worth a look as it's the right year from a tax point of view.

Thanks for that. I know what you mean about wing, It does look a little odd from the photograph. I'm based in the northwest so difficult for me to pop over. I'm unsure about the 90k milage. After looking at the mot records it was up to 90 90,530 miles in April last year. Red flag?

That car has had a fair bit of paintwork done and pretty poor colour match as well, the front end looks different colour to the drivers door and the passenger sill is different colour to the rest of that side. I’d avoid it.
