Also check that the vendor is an excecutor/administrator, or has permission from them,especially if there are more than one.
Feelings can run high between benefactors and things can turn difficult at the drop of a hat in these cases - you could end up having paid for a car that you have no title to.

Think the main 'extras' to look for are aircon and the Modutop (overhead lockers and glass roof panels). ISTR the passenger airbag was optional (possibly also side airbags). There was also an optional 'comfort pack' with armrests, seat back trays and a folding box for the boot. Can't thing of anything else...
Good luck at the viewing! That's very low miles indeed...
Oh yes thanks as you may of gathered from above that I bought it
,from what I can work out its got rain sensor wipers,rain sensor
Head lamps,air con fitted,arm rests got them as well as table trays,dash computer gives miles to fill
