just remember its not only the engine that has done 400k and may sound sweet as, every other bit has done as much ie wheel bearings, all those nice perishable bushes, steering racks, electrical thingys like alternators etc..etc..

Ive just bought a little van thats done 200k its last MOT it had new brake lines and a steering rack and pump..300 which made him selling it for 700 not really a good deal on his side..fine for me though..:D:D

everything in perspective, aslong as the price reflects the condition,age,mileage and history. and of course depends on what you are going to use it for, ocasional use etc. suppose im not much use ehLOL:

Well, I just bought one with 200,000 miles on it too, but mines cost 100
Brake pipe costs me 3.00 a roll & I got more spares than a VW dealer

I was in a Mercedes Benz E320CDI taxi once in Gran Canaria, it had 996000 kilometres on the clock, driver said it was the original engine and gearbox, and it was automatic.:eek:
