    Guys, going tomorrow to Aadya motors in bangalore to check the 2012 model bnw 76ps which they have in stock. It would be really helpful if any one can join me at around 11 in the morning for a thorough check of the car.

    Follow the TFI check list buddy and also go through some the ownership threads. Youll get fair idea. Since its there in the stock yard for along time, do make sure battery, tyres are in good condition and also damages of exteriors too. Not sure how paint quality would affect if its standing in sun and harsh rain and dust for long time.

    I guess SA may be throwing a bone here to you. Not sure. But its bad to push a customer, the deal or understanding should work both ways.

    A car that was not sold for almost a year now have many customers in waiting ...wow..FIAT new marketing seems to be working or Sales person have not seen his monthly sales charts lately.

    Dont rush into things, sales guy will try to push you so that he closes the deal soon without looking deep into it. Take your time, look around the car, way the pros and cons, examine, take all the time and help and then decide, its your hard earn money after all.

    Since this is a prelimnary check, would suggest to look out for basics such as
    1) VIN to ensure that its not too old
    2) Whats the Odo reading? Does it have an H?
    3) How long the car been lying at dealer stockyard? Check for rusts on the wheels, brakes etc. If possible do an underbody check.
    4) Any usual external body suspicions?

    Would suggest take a known mechanic if TFIians arent available. Ensure that the car being offered is not a test drive vehicle. The thorough PDI can be done on any Saturday where you can request B'lore experts (Driv3R, Zenwalker etc..) to help you out.

    you can bargain to get the price lower...they will create artificial rush if they know you are buying one ! Keep your cool and deal, do a proper PDI. Best of luck
