The Disco thread prompted this but I'm going to a dealer tommorrw having test driven a car with the intention of trading in the Magna. It's a white 97 model VS seaies II Executive Sedan. Auto, Air con, Power steering, power mirrors but not windows, cruise control. Neat and tidy inside and out. Tiny patches of superficial rust under spare wheel in the boot. Engine and gear box seem fine. 204000km on the clock and the asking price is $6999. If anyone bought one of these how much did you pay, and how did it compare? Also are there any particular problems I can expect to develop or might not have looked for on this car. Also, is it too much to pay given that the dealer is a friend and knows what I really want in a Magna wagon with a manual transmission and preferably power windows? The car itself was originally a Telstra fleet vehical and all servicing has been meticulasly recorded before (and since) being sold to a middle aged woman with an RMB address at Benalla so mostly country km's.
