Thinking about buying a car from them. Does anyone have any experiences?

The guy is English. He buys a lot of cars from auctions so they may be high miles but should be well maintained. He is based near Caleta. He seems nice enough. If I remember his name is Alan.

Thanks again Costa. He seems to sell a decent amount of cars so probably decent enough. Will try to arrange a couple of viewings for the weekend. If nothing else its a nice place to visit. Regards

Has OP or anyone else subsequently tried Axar Cars? They haven't got my kind of vehicle but I was considering asking them to let me know when they do. Less hassle than my UK LHD bring-over idea if they are decent. Also, many, many promising cars listed by (proper) dealers in milanuncios et al neglect to mention ITV. Is it the case here that cars in dealers usually do have it (hence no mention) or is it more likely than not it's expired and I'm supposed to sort it?
Apols if it's a :roll: question. 1st time buyer in Spain.

Axar cars usually sell ex lease cars so not sure what your budget is. Buying a banger here is fraught with danger.

Like others have found, my budget for over here has gone up in response to the absolute heaps that came in at my original. For now, though, I have to put a €3k ceiling on what is meant to move me around for a year or two. I don't mind dents/scrapes/blsitering (my present hire car, as with previous, has been left an affectionate ding by persons unknown) but I want evidence of an oily rag having been near it in the past as I'll continue to service it.
I do see service history mentioned but often ITV is not. Just wondered if it's commonplace for dealers to sell with ITV or, unless "en vigor" or "recien pasada" is mentioned, to assume that it's for me to sort out.
