was speaking to john boy earlier on about this aswell.

looking at a car at the moment that was registered end of 2000 and id be the 5th owner of it. the person that has the car now has only had it for 4 months but is selling up due to wanting an M3 (which is fair enough)

its got a full BMW service History and hpi clear with mot etc.

should i be worried at all or as john said it could be peoples circumstances have changed and needed to move on. i mean 6 years and 4 owners so far, isnt a great deal, is it?

Check the car out,make sure all seems well,ask if anythings ever gone wrong,see if they have any reciepts, if this all checks out,or proves inconclusive then dont worry about it. If however theres a list of reciepts as long as ur arm for things repaired and theres something up with the car when u inspect it (from lights on the dash to noisy engine) then i'd walk away. Also,due to the large number of owners it shud sell for less than a similar car with 1 owner from new,not sure why but thats just one of the things when buying a car

More MOT - Sells for more
More tax - Sells for more
Less owners - Sells for more
Less mileage - Sells for more

Im not sure what the Gold HPI check is, but if you just want a standard HPI check, then you get one for 3.00 by text from the following:

Text Number - 88600

Then put in the text the following (where CARREG is you put the registration number of the car):

CHECKIT CARREG

I have used this service loads of times for myself and friends and it works a treat. It might not be insured or anything, but it sure beats the 37 they usually cost if you are just going to view the car. Of course, it "may" be worth you getting a full one done if you are actually going to buy the car, but I can't see what the difference would be.

DONT DO IT..........

I have just used this service to HPI one of my vehicle as a check, it has replied telling me the vehicle is reported as stolen and it belongs to the insurance company when and if the vehicle is recovered..

My Experian Gold HPI check tells me it is fine.

Experian is the worlds largest company whom stores information on vehicles and offeres insurance if there information is incorrect.

gary i would go there with the same frame of mind that you would if u were buying a brand new car

as i told u my car is 1 year older then that and i am the 8th owner but my car as full service History neva failed mot, lady owners, and everthing chnaged at the right milege

people get bored of cars these days (chnage em every year)

financial insures (cant afford to run once bought, or pay rise in work so can afford something better like this guy)

at end of day uv gotta look at the overal car an the documents, if its what u want and it looks a minter go with ya gut, dnt go off silly figures like amount of owners
