Way to little info to even answer that one m8.

What age is it ?
What condition ?
Has it got a service history ?
Does anything need replacing ?
What's the price tag ?
How many owners has it had ?
What did it test ride like ?
Oh ! and an HPI check ???

Just 'cos it has 70k on the clock is no reason to write it off, but in conjunction with negative answers to the above Q's may well be.

On the other hand, it may have been well kept and well worth the effort

Sounds wise to walk away from that one! Although no service history doesn't always mean bad, as lots of people like myself do the work themselves, but I at least keep receipts for parts.

Plus I think £800 is too much, given info you gave. If it starts and runs then I might have considered giving him no more than £500 and just done some work on it to bring it up to scratch... I believe a couple of cats on here have done over 100,000 miles Smile

Good luck with your search, you won't regret buying a cat
