Greetings all,

I have been searching for a used V coupe 6M for a while now. They are very hard to come by, but I think I have finally found one near my area.
The car is a 2011 silver coupe with 17k miles going for 57.7k. The options include recaro seats, yellow brake calipers, rear nav, 19inch rims.
My only concern is that the car already has so many miles and according to car fax has been auctioned off twice in the last year between dealerships. What do you guys think?
Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!

avoid at all costs. history says someone hurt the motor. or, offer $40k for it

Pass. $52k max considering high mileage.
PS. 19" rims aren't an option; polished or black(ish) are. And "rear nav" you mean backup? That's standard on 2011s; nav and backup. Other options are sunroof, suede, and wood trim.

That's a ton of miles considering the yellow calipers were first avail in March 2011. I'd pass. This car sounds like it was used as a taxi.

My Vagon with yellow calipers was built second week of January '11.

I think March was the first time they were available to purhase separately. I stand corrected.

"... auctioned off twice..."

End of discussion.
