Some essential advice before buying a used car according to Mike Brewer Wheeler Dealers
" If you're in a market for a used car you might want this old Ferrari 308.
They aren't just folding. There are a few things that you should do if we
set off to go and buy a car. The first of which is to use your phone, maybe
your landline or your mobile phone, and phone with data service. Somebody
like HPI or the AA, and they can give you all the information you would
need to know whether the car is pretty involved in any accidents, whether
the police have got an interest, but more importantly, if it's got any
finance outstanding. Now, the only information you need to give him is a
registration number of a car. And if you can, get the chassis number of the
owner as well. That way, you can find out that the car you're buying is
genuine rather than setting off to go [unk] in the first place. All it cost
is the same price as a tanker fuel, and it's the best money you'll ever
spend. Secondly, when you arrive to go and see the car, make sure that the
car has not been previously rammed before you got there. What I mean by
that is put your hand on the body, although dirty on this Ferrari, or look
can be stupid because the engine on this car is down the back. So, when I
do get to the car, I can put the key in ignition and see if there's any
nasty fumes or black smoke coming out the Exhaust pipe. Now, the other thing to do is when
you do go and see a vehicle, make sure that the paperwork tallies to the
place where you're actually standing. You'd be amazed of the amount of
people who buy a car from the petrol station or from a pump carpark. What
you should do, is when you go and see a vehicle, make sure that the
paperwork says you'll stand in the barn any town. Make sure you all stand
in at the barn any town to come and see the car. That way, you know that
you're buying a genuine car of a genuine owner. Now, when you do finally
get there, and you've checked that it's not been previously rammed, you're
standing in the right place, and you've done your days check, don't let
your heart rule your head because you can't get carried away, especially
with something as evocative as this lovely 308 GT4. You want to make sure
that you've got yourself a price and stick to it. Don't go above it;
otherwise, you could end up to shell your money out forever in a day to
keep that thing on the road. If the car has got any outstanding finance,
then make sure you speak to the finance company before you go to see the
vehicle and find out what that settlement figure should be. That way, you
can give the owner the balance of the vehicle that you've agreed to
purchase it from, and send the settlement figure directly to the finance
company. That way, you know it's been paid. Other than that, happy

BMW 3.0 CSL (E9) feature from 'Deals on Wheels' in 2000
Mike Brewer would be unrecognizable here if it weren't for his inimitable
cheeky cockney do-what leave it aaht gertcha east-end car salesman patter.
Could you really pick up a CSL in 2000 for £2k? I think Mr. Brewer is
talking about a regular E9.
Interesting choice of filming locations; a noisy chemical factory.
Apologies for the appalling quality of this vid. If I were you I wouldn't
stand for it.
