Snippersgate have two nice examples.
The Blue is the same colour as mine. It is 2 years older, 20,000 miles more and a £1000 more than I paid privately two years ago.
I very much like the Black face lift with the black and grey interior, black interior is bland.
Brakes on the face lift are a lot cheaper and you get paddles and a better nav?
First thing is set a budget now you have looked around and be the first on the scene.
Dealers always phone up sellers and offer to buy for cash at reduced price.
You can buy things now using bank transfer but I suggest you send £1 first to confirm that all the bank details are correct.
If you are buying a 55 I would not get one without sensors or Air scarf.
The auto climate looks nicer but shouldn't detract at resale, cd player in glove box renders the glove box useless in a car with little storage (it's a V8
) you can use your phone for music now days etc or ipod.
Seat bolsters can get damaged if buying from a dealer get them fixed. Also check the door shuts (all models) for seat belt buckle damage.
When you find the one you want......buy it
