So I'm losing some sleep lately contemplating the purchase of a used, supposedly garage queen Beast near me. It's an '02 w/26kmi on it and from what I can tell sight unseen, possibly an 8-9 out of 10 condition.
You probably don't remember me from over a year ago, but I went through a quite lengthy list of things to watch out for after browsing for months on this awesome site.
The BIG question is do I risk purchasing without also purchasing an ext'd warranty? I realize it's a risk, but I also have to recognize that most things should have gone wrong by this point? Major mechanical issues should have been noticed by now and the owner has indicated the only thing to have been replaced was one CPS. What's on my mind are VANOS issues, carbon issues (I'd just do the SW patch), and maybe some 02 sensors.
Any advice is always welcomed
