    Surely you could just take the car to a garage to get a compression test done? and base it on if that comes back fine you will buy it?

    I agree, i was looking privately but people chat so much ****** you don't know what to believe, I went to toomeys vxr centre and bought a nurburg, it was the test run version, only had 89 miles on it, got 4000 knocked off it instantly, and you still get your lifetime warrenty at no charge, well worth it

    How much does compression test cost because I don't own the car and wouldn't want to spend too much?

    thanks

    Check my progress thread out. http://www.vxronline.co.uk/forum/sho...-Red-Corsa-VXR

    I have removed a few of the mods as I was sure I was trading in so it's pretty much standard but got gloss black plastic's and a burg splitter.
