Two RRS for sale here - any thoughts?

I am casually browsing for an RRS, and came across these two via Autotrader;

Firstly, they seem reasonably priced, good spec, reasonable mileage and FSH. Does anyone have any alarm bells when they look at either? Secondly, I know little about the motor industry, but when I see premises like these, without a flash showroom and tucked away on trading estates, I am always a little bit wary. Is that a reasonable reaction? A quick Google/Facebook check reveals....absolutely nothing! That's a good sign, isn't it?

Flash showrooms mean higher prices...

They both look clean vehicles to be honest, I don't live a million miles away from them so if you are serious about one or the other I can go and cast an eye over them? I'm not a mechanic but do enjoy pressing buttons and poking things!

searching on google, the mobile in the add all leads back to his car ads in various places, nothing jumped out as dodgy, though they appear to be ecu remappers and specialist in Jap imports too

Thank you gents, especially for the offer to visit. I have a BMW X1 as a trade-in, so I might be better served popping along myself. I love a good button-press too Very Happy

The dealership is also on Facebook, and I would imagine that that is a handy way for disgruntled former customers to air any grievances. As it is, there was no negative feedback on there, which bodes well. I guess I am just being cautious - the motor trade must have some honest traders, right??

Lovely cars, make yourself aware of several issues such as what is involved in changing out a Turbo on a TDV8

Bloody hell! As someone who has run an air-cooled 911 for 5 years, I realise that the maintenance requirements on these beasts are....different!

Still, a looked after example, full SH, low-ish miles and a decent warranty is the way to go, I think. Well, that and the power of prayer! Plus I presume there are good people around I could get to preform a pre-purchase inspection?

The blue one appears to be missing the load cover. That will need to be added to any deal... 2012 SDV6
2008 TDV8 - it's a labour of love
