Today i was in the sunday car market and came upon an diesel charade that i liked instantly, i have significant interest in diesel cars but i require your advisory in this case.
The car owner told me that the engine is genuine Daihatsu diesel which came with the car, but its top cover broke during an engine overhaul at the mechanics and the cover has been replaced but the engine is genuine, he is an doctor and i believe he is not lieing to me.
I want to ask if that could have caused any problem in the engine? Is it a risk to take?
He is selling the car at 130k and it has alot of body work needed, i plan to buy the car and have all the body work fixed.
Any other advice about diesel cars and recommendations?
I also want to ask, is it possible to swap out the interior and dashboard of the car for a better looking interior, and how much will that cost? With and without new seats.
