No the exhaust is a Miltek, not sure on the tyres, didn't think to ask !! yes it comes with the plate.Is the quad exhaust normal for the 3.2 (sorry, mines a 2l and only the TTS has 4 pipes.)
Any idea what state the tyres are in (brand, mm tread...)
Does it come with the number plate?!
How new is the Miltek? What’s been done with the cat, resonator, downpipe etc? Is it going to pass the strictest mot tester for emissions and noise? If a previous owner spent a grand on the exhaust it’s highly likely he did other stuff. Who changed the number plate?[QUOTE="Jezzie, post: 9571405, member: 302705"
But a non-standard exhaust - and what else modded - needs a few more questions

Has it got the original ‘infotainment’? Bose?
Quite a lot of info we don’t know that would help say go for it or run a mile.
Cheers Stevie, I think the exhaust rattle at 2k is just vibrating on a heat shield, I had exactly the same thing on my mk1 years ago, it was an easy fix. He only has a very basic scanner (which says there are no stored faults on the car) but he can't use it to read the blocks, I have an ODBEleven on order but I don't think it will be with me in time to go and see it on the weekend, I'm really not sure what to do lol.Dunno if it’s just me, but in the first video, when he revs the car up to 2000rpm a few times, it doesn’t sound right to me at all - something sounds “metallic” as it hits 2k and drops back down. I know my 3.2 doesn’t sound like that. As for the dreaded “marbles in a can” sound for the timing chain, he doesn’t seem to hang around long enough for any clear indication, but with something like VCDS or OBDEleven, you could measure any stretch on the chain by looking at certain blocks such as 208,209,90,91.
She looks nice, I’ll say that. But looks can deceive and if I were you, I’d want to be sure before buying.
