Pre-purchase Inspection - Grantham/Lincolnshire

Afternoon all,

I have been wavering between a L322 and L405 5.0SC for some time now, but am now in a position to make the leap. I have been keeping my eye out for a nice Green version above all.

I have found a nice looking green L322 on Auto Trader which has had a reconditioned engine in the last 2,000 miles, but it is a fair distance away from me (it's near Grantham) and as I am new to these vehicles, I would quite like to get a specialist to look over it to confirm it is in relatively good order, following which I could arrange a transfer of funds and make the journey in the not too distant future to collect it.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a specialist in Lincolnshire/near Grantham, who I could ask to view the car and check all the usual faults and failings listed in the excellent buyers guide on the Wiki?

Thanks
James

Does anyone have any thoughts on a specialist or is anyone in the Grantham area and at a lose end and wants to have a jog around an L322 to check that there aren't any major issues with the arches, sills, boot shuts etc...?
Thanks very much,
James

Famous Four at Louth...but, assuming they would do it, they would charge.

Thanks for the reply. I have already been in touch with Famous Four and they would do it, but they said they were closed for the moment due to the virus. I have given them another email this morning to see if they are able to do it yet.

I had a "specialist" check my car before I bought it.
he reported it was fine apart from recommending I ask for a new mot as there were only weeks left on the existing.
when I picked it up on the drive home I immediately noticed it was crabbing.
dropped it in to a reliable local tyre place and there were 3 different types of tyre on it and it needed a four wheel alignment.
cleared that up and it drives a dream now.
so, just be wary of some specialists
