Anyone know this car GT 08

So after almost a year hiatus, I am back in a position to potentially enter into GT ownership.

Still looking bottom of the market so an early 4.2 with all the pitfalls! Had some great advice on here before and learned a lot through having to pull out of a purchase last year.

Had Dale at Prestige do a PPI on a car which was in great shape but work forced me to back out.

I have now found the below:


Dale is doing a PPI on Tuesday so though it worth a post to see if anyone knows the car? Appears to have been in Devon for some time before moving north. Service history looks good but no Variators from what I have seen. Bushes have appeared on MOTs and then gone but the PPI can confirm the state of play!

Thanks in advance.

Oddly seems to have an HW8.1 NIT installed with USB and Bluetooth, which post dates the vehicle by a few years, unless the description is wrong

Original exhausts? They look larger although I am at the opticians tomorrow.

Looks like aftermarket exhaust, but no record of it in the service - there is some corrosion around the coolant tank from a video i have, is that a worry (general rot can be i recall).

Aftermarket exhaust. Weird description with two sets of wheels in 19 inch while there are 20 inch wheels on the car. Also it has all sorts of interior trim colors according to the description.

But if PPI is good and service history is in order you should be good to go.

USB and AUX can be retrofit to a HW7 unit as well.

Thanks for the replies all!

Ppi was today and there are a few issues as expected at the bottom of the market - mainly rot and bushes so need to chat it through with Dale @ Prestige tonight.

Has a new suspension kit for one side ready to be fitted and is in for paint touch up tomorrow but looks a bit sorry for itself and seems to have been unloved for the past 2 years.

Bit of water misting in boot which seems odd and glue on the seals so could be a red flag.

Sounds glorious with the aftermarket exhaust but need sensible head on!

If it needs a front subframe and suspension there's a few £££ to be spent.
