Anyone in west palm beach?

I've been eyeing this V12 for a while and it's been on ebay for a fairly long time. I think it's priced fairly but it does have an accident history although from the carfax it seems minor. Is there anyone in the area that can check out the car? Is this a reputable dealer?

Thanks!

Ksa is an unknown quantity at this point
Damn...seems like a great deal. Screw this..I am running over to get it.

Haha. But on a serious note, you should be jumping on it. Sorry can't help with checking it out in person.

Get it checked out at a nearby Aston dealer - if anything shows up it's their cost to fix. Might cost you $1,000 but could save you ten times that much.

I am not familiar with the seller, but I agree that you should get it checked out with the local West Palm Beach Aston dealer. I find their pricing to be very reasonable, not much different than an indy, and while I may be wrong I doubt that a PPI there will cost you $1,000. Certainly worth a call.

My Aston was originally sold at Aston Martin palm beach... Frank is the service guy and a reasonable chap.

I had my PPI done at Aston Martin Orlando a few years ago and it was $200...

I would expect no more than 2 hours at thet published shop rate

Thanks!
I am about 15min from this shop. But I have never been by to visit. I'd be happy to help anyone out and at least see if its worth a PPI. Its listed for $104,900 on their site so it better be!

Aston of Palm Beach is excellent, very honest from my few dealings. I however have an indie mechanic who does all my work.

PM me and let me know.

12yr financing being offered... just what I needed. haha

If you do a CPO inspection between $1,000 and $1,500 - you can likely get an Aston warranty for at least a year - will add $5K to the price but guarantee you will not have bought someone else's problem. If it was a used 2006 V8 for $30K not worth it, but a V12S is what I'd recommend going that route if available.

Typically what's the minimum for the warranty is all the items on the PPI must meet the Aston standards and the car must have current documented service or the next service must be performed.
