Without a detailed proof of repair and plenty of photos of the damage there’s no chance I’d put anywhere near the amount they’re asking for that

Ignoring the Cat N part, it's claiming to have 10" infotainment which it doesn't, so it would be worth checking it has the other extras they're listing like Adaptive Cruise and auto boot.

Good catch.

I'll check everything.

Even if it is perfect, whilst I get it's the state of the market at the moment, these seem expensive now. Are straight 2017 cars really asking £22,000?

That said, the 2017 spec 245s are nearly as good as the Mk3 Octavia got (besides the later 245 Challenge which was the same spec plus adaptive suspension).

Should be 10k off the price just because it was owned by someone in Brum. Dodgiest place in the country for used cars :D

Front tints, Chameleon Windscreen tint… previous owner must have been a bit of a “Certi Driver”

I’d personally avoid based on that stereotype alone.

I'd be carrying out a vcheck on it to see if it pulls up the damage details. Without seeing some pictures of why it was recorded as a Cat N, and then being able to properly check over the repair I'd steer well clear. And that's before taking into the normal gut feeling about the car regarding the tints and it's location

Seems a nice report...will keep that in mind for future, thanks for the heads up.
