Been looking at C6's , since selling - and regretting it - my nice C4 'vert. Have come across a C6 'vert , at what appears to be a very good price , but have some serious doubts about it. 1- looks like it's been "clocked" , mileage does not tally with the figure when exported, and in previous U.K. ads. 2- mileage is about 150k , I know these are good engines, and this one appears to have good service records, but it's the other things that can be a pain thru' general wear and tear. I'm thinking torque tube bearings , amongst others, as I know that can cost some . It's had a front/rear shunt, possibly stationary when hit , was rear-ended and went into the car in front , or similar. Was'nt recorded as a write-off ,but , well ,you know ? Having said that , it looks to have been repaired properly. .3- it's an '05 , hence a 4-speed ,not a deal-breaker , but I reckon a 6-speed auto be best, as the 2nd to 3rd jump in the 4L60 in my C4 was quite a big gap . Having regard to all this , can anyone suggest what kinda budget I need to get something with less than mega-miles on it? Not after super-low, concours survivor cars, just a regular, sound , and not worn out example. Some of you on here may know the car to which I refer , so if anyone has been and looked at it and decided "no" , would you share your thoughts with me ? Also , being a bit cheeky, if anyone has a reasonably priced one for sale, I'd appreciate a tip-off. But one thing .....I've seen a reasonable one on this club forum , but it's black. I hate black !Bright yellow or red does it for me , but beggars can't always be choosers ! A convertible would be nice, but coupes are sexy, too.
