This fits the title but dunno wether it's the right place..... Looking to buy a st my 6 this week the car is up for£2500 with 60k on the clock it is one of the early facelift models 05 plate, was wondering where I'd be able to find a history or if anyone had come across the car as its listed as cat d for vandalism (sunroof and wide Windows's were put through! Unsure as to wether such damage is enough to make it a catd and where is the best place to find a good reliable history for the car.

Et05wbw is the plate


You can do the HPI checks and all those usual ones, will tell you if it's been written off/stolen etc...

As for who's it was, not sure, not seen that plate on this site.

It could be a Cat D, if they got it repaired through insurance... But seeing as it was only windows which were smashed in an act of vandalism I would hardly say it is anything to walk away from!! Only need to be wary about Cat D's when it is something like crash damage which has been repaired, even then Cat D's are usually quite alright to buy as they are only light damage, Cat C's are the ones which need a bit more caution.

Older models don't really go for that much these days... Mine is an 05 Pre facelift with over 90k miles on the clock... I'd be lucky to get £2.5k for mine :lol:

Another thing to look out for:

Heated front window - make sure it works, a lot of them only have a small portion working i.e. just the drivers side

Why does this happen, how do you fix it?

Magic... Not sure to be honest, I think the filaments in the glass just "go" and don't work anymore. It isn't a major issue...a heated front screen is only a "nice to have" not a "need".

But if it doesn't work, it is a good thing to notice before you buy so you can haggle the price due to it :nice:

To fix it, you need a replacement windscreen.

Something like £650... If I remember correctly?

However! If you have windscreen cover as part of your insurance...it's free :nice:

But you might need a chip too big to repair/a crack in the screen for windscreen insurance to do the job??

In response to a previous comment, the 500s don't all have the DAB if any....They all come standard with the Sony system as did all the facelifts I believe but not DAB.

Cheers for the info, but regarding the clicking mirrors, does this mean they are on the way out? Or is it normal?

I have just deleted a couple of 'classified' ads. Please don't use this topic as a sales and wants one. It would be a pity if it had to get locked.
