From what I've found:

They got full value from the front tyres
NSR exhaust hitting the differential
Looking at the service history it had new brake hoses at 26,445 miles in May of this year

No problem Sunday would be great. ! I took a test drive in it today and was completely blown away. After owning a V6S for the last 3 years it was reassuringly similar in some ways but in others oh so different.

Yeah, the V6S is great but the V8s are real hooligans! :lol:

Apologies for asking simple R. I realise now it must get tedious having to respond to a “car check please” post at least a couple of times a week. I am more than happy to have done a car vertical check (in fact I used total car check before I started the post) just thought that maybe you guys were privy to some more info out there! Anyways I was pretty much sold after a test drive tbh I try and do all the correct things you are meant to do when buying a car but as soon as I drive it that all goes out the window. And all I can hear is a “buy it buy it voice going over and over in my head :lol:

Car 46579
Started life in Carlisle, then Leeds and Lincoln.
Three previous owners. (On two previous private plates).

Currently no MOT but make sure everything on last MOT gets resolved.

Service history shows a couple of the services were a little late so it should of had 7th service in Feb this year but it just had 6th service in May. Therefore a few things are a little out, for example the spark plug change was missed on 5th service but then done on the 6th.

Ask the seller why they replaced the brake hoses on the last service, not seen brake hoses needing replacement before. Also missed rear diff oil change so get that done.
