    Default What do you guys think to this 355???

    http://www.pistonheads.co.uk/sales/311137.htm

    I went to see it yesterday, (despite me working on the addage cheap 355 vs good 348 arguement).

    This really goes with my other question on PCI international, which I guess no-one has had dealings with! lol

    Anyway, this car needs some paintwork doing, and a good connolise of the interior, but otherwise looked good.

    Am really torn over this car, as I originally wanted a 355 but was priced out, but do love the 348 too and was more than happy to stick with that!

    1 other thing...
    on the dash, there were 3 lights on at tick-over, but I can't remember what they were - if you can recognise the light (the one on the far right)... you can see it on the picture below - sorry my bloomin phone was set to the wrong resolution
    I have a bad feeling it was the ABS light? would that fit? - what might be the cause/cost of that light being on?

    Looks like a good buy. Depends on the cost of getting the lights problems sorted though.

    Try and knock the seller down to 29K and you cant go wrong.

    As long as the engine sounded good & it drove well.

    Couldn't drive it, as it was in the 'showroom' (read store!!). but he did start it up, and it did sound good. Obviously I'd go back again, and invest in a PPI if I was to go further.
    it does come with a warranty (3 months) - but I'm sure thats worth nothing!
    it was sold in May this year for 35995 at Foskers (had a cambelt done at the time). still seems cheap even back then!

    i would say -from memory-that lights are handbrake and check engine lights -CEL .... the CEL's go out after car has started. if car is early model, abs was switchable so abs light might come on if there's a prob

    Thats great, I was looking everywhere for a picture like that.
    I think then it was light 5 (slowdown 5-8), 6 (handbrake) and 13 (ABS).
    hmm, I'll call him tomorrow, it does come with a warranty, so I'd expect those things to be fixed!!
