Seller also knows the car, as he mentions decat, undersealing etc being done. The body work is a filler and paint job rather than replace panels. Lots of interior wear on seat and stearing wheel, nice wheels and the very rare spoiler. For a low price (£3,500) I think that's ok, last MOT was all good, and seller seems honest about damage.

Taking another looks, it looks like a great first Elgrand, if a dealer bought that in Japan he'd ship it over, replace the seat and stearing wheel, touch up the body work and have it on the forecourt at £6500

All sounds reasonable to me. The body work shouldn't cost too much to put right if you know a decent repair shop. Decat and underseal done! Bonus!! Age relayed wearand tear depends how picky you are? Looks a decent car to me if you get it for what you're bidding at.

Re. Brake pads 15 - 30 pounds for a set of front pads depending on make. Easy enough to fit at home if you know what you're doing.

Remember seeing this a few weeks back at a 'buy it now price' (£5250 link below). Like everyone else said if you get it around 3500 its a great deal! Leather seats can always be fixed and the bodywork isn't to bad either! I managed to score my white Elgrand for 3200 on ebay so you never know...
Good luck @Dave 1963 be great if you win it :)

Good idea about seat but probably try and restore that if I could what about that steering wheel how easy to restore or put a new one on as I think that's where the air bag is normally

If you can get it cheap then go for it albeit you will need to spend a couple of k on it to make MINT. Any seat trimmer will be bale to sort out the interior for you and or make you up a set of custom seat covers for around £500 for a real nice quality set.

Body work is minor although it chuckles me the seller states Absolutely no rot or rust on it.

You pays your money and takes your chances I say but those alloys look nice and that rear spoiler is ULTRA rare option and nice too. I have one on mine and it makes the vehicle. Steering wheel can also be fixed too.

I would not pay more than 3k for it if I were interested. Brain @ BMR would be able to give it a 100% check over and service for you no doubt for a decent price too for peace of mind.

I'd say it's going to fetch closer to £4,300 on eBay, it's a decent example that's been driven and the seller seems honest enough, I don't think you'd need to spend much on it, the expensive part is going to be the body work and paint and I'd say that's a few hundred.

The seat could probably be cleaned and treated if you didn't want it immaculate, and the wheel just needs a decent leather cover stitching on it.

It depends if you want it nice or if you want it perfect I guess.
