l bought two cars from motorhub and they are ok, l know they do not have a great reputation but l know what l am looking for and you have got to look at the car and decide on its merits, regardless of who is selling it.
l have looked at the red car, they had a blue mk1 as well not viewed, it looked ok from the top and interior but l would say that it could do with a fair bit of work underbodywise ie surface derusting, treating and undersealing, l did not start it as it was not the car l was interested in.
Price was not way over the top but l would bargain with them as they have had it for a while now.
I buy as seen, and make as sure as l can that the car is ok, still a bit of a risk l suppose.
M/h are dealing in cars well into 6 figures, then l do think you need a report, but the ones at our level are less of a risk, l think they will pick up cheap auction cars from japan mainly, but the red car has been in the uk and was a trade in.
Some of the cleanest cars will come from Japan but wherever my first concern regardless is the level of underbody rust and what it will take to clean and treat.
Good luck and welcome to Gtouk.
