Matthew Sharpe, my old lemon is 2500au$ only.
It always seems like a good idea - you think you're getting a bargain...
Then you have to replace all the suspension bushes, the struts, the steering rack rubbers, control arms, the timing belt, tensioner and water pump, the door hinges, the dash out for repairs, the petrol pump ECU, the HT leads... the list goes on and on... before you know it you've spent more money than it would have cost just to get a later model/better condition car - not to mention all the time its spent off the road.
Soarers are tough cars, but if they are left to get shabby, they are very expensive to fix.
Never buy a cheap luxury car, they are almost never the good deal they appear to be, and you almost always end up hating them for all the problems they cause.
