Buy from a franchise dealer and not from independent auction sourced cars.

Ask them what checks they have done to the car and get a list of works that need to be done.

Check the service history against the owner’s manual.

Check the timing chain and injectors’ replacement.

Be ready to pay £1K in repairs when things go wrong.
