I can offer you an appraisal of this vehicle as I looked at it back in January when I was still searching.
The seller is a nice guy, very accomodating and seems to be genuine. What he wasn't at the time was entirely honest. Prior to his ad being updated the vehicle was listed as "immaculate" and was asking around 20k.
I test drove the car and it drove well - better than a similarly aged AGP that I was interested in.
What the seller didn't mention until I was there was the sizeable "shopping trolley" damage to the rear left bumper that had been repaired poorly (bad paint matching and rough finish), the front splitter that was so broken it would need replacing, the gaps in the service history and that he hadn't replaced the speedo needle under the factory recall (you can't see the needle against the background markings in daylight).
I left thinking I'd been a bit misled and wondered what else wasn't being offered upfront.
Good luck in your search.
