    Hi All,
    Im am planning on purchasing a 2006 coupe with about 28k miles on it.

    The car is a one owner vehicle with a clean title.

    Before the purchase I would like to do a PPI and I would also like to get input from this forums members on what to look for prior to purchase.

    I would like to know.

    1. what issues are typical and how to spot them
    2. are there any common areas of concern
    3. what are the typical fixes that should have been done on the car already
    4. any recommended first fixes I should plan on doing

    Thank you,
    AK

    Hi Frank
    I am not looking for a transport service.

    It is great that you use this space as an advertising portal - I don't believe that is the intended use case

    I thought my post was clearly asking about the car and what to look for

    Thanks for your PM
    I do not need a transport service

    Good luck with your business

    AF, don't take offense...Frank is a great guy, and has had more Vipers than most...and considerable track experience. What may appear to some a "hawking his business" may be one of the old guard trying to keep a newbie out of some of the many pitfalls found in the car transport business.

    I would be happy to discuss Viper purchasing ideas with you...but, since typing is not my hobby, feel free to call me. 317-402-9013
