That's a lovely combination. Right colour, model, spec, mileage, low owners, etc. It's even got the same blue alcantara roof I have in my Strad. Got to be worth a look.
I did see your car on the other thread and it looks superb.

It doesn't look like the seller has made much effort to present the car well in the ad though? Not much description or photos of clean car.

Is 25% wear on the clutch quite a lot for 30k miles car? Also any recommendations for decent independent garages around Leeds to do a PPI please?
Is there anything else I should be checking on a facelift 2012 car? Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Can't answer your questions directly but try Michael Durham of Enso Automotive in Wetherby. He is a Ferrari and Maserati master tech and a really good bloke.

Where in Leeds are you? I'm in Leeds and drive and granturismo.

Hi, I am actually based in London but one of the car I am interested in is near Leeds. It’s three hours drive from me so was thinking about planning everything in advance.

No - that's very low. That implies you might get 120k miles from one clutch. Which you won't. If it has only worn down by 25% in 30k miles of driving, it's either been driven incredibly carefully with no uphill reversing, or it's on it's second clutch (which is more likely).

Mine was at 6% at 15k miles and 9% at 19k miles. I think it helps not being driven in traffic or reversing up hills. It would be interesting to hear how far others have travelled on a clutch. Thread drift I know....

My GTS clutch needed changing at around 35k miles. I got the car at 19k miles and the clutch was about 45% worn (from memory), but it had been kept in London and hence had spent time stop/starting, probably weird full-lock parking maneuvers and all the other fun clutch-straining antics.
