Other people here posted cars from Oldenzaal and were warned that they should get a PPI. I do think there is always surprises
when one purchases a 2002. I purchased mine for the the most part sight unseen. I talked with the owner several times had
tons of pictures of the tear down to bare metal. I put a $500. deposit down and showed up with a truck and trailer 1000 miles from home. If the car wasn't close to what he said was I had the option to walk. I would of lost my deposit and another $1200. in travel cost.
The car,lucky for me was in better shape then I had hoped. It does have a lot of little things that are not correct, was some electrical,several washers and wrong bolts, bushings not installed correctly. The gentleman I purchased the car from was my age
I'm 63, he's a fireman who was awarded a medal of valor for saving someone's life. I felt we had a great repor in all are conversations.
He was honest about the car and we both did everything we said we would do. Mine was a great experience, even the three days on the road.
Sorry yours turned out bad to be a bad experience. Most stuff look to be cheap fixes except the rust.
I'm always amazed what people say is no or minor rust. i hope once you get settled in with the car it turns out to be the joy that these cars can be.
