Ok he's sent pics of the lacquer damage it's not too bad but there is a service book picture showing service at 85k on 25th feb 08 but on the other page it says cambelt change at 85k on the 25th march 08?? Also the spark plugs have been changed apparently LOL.

That's the same van as mine mate. Mine's only got 39k on the clock, but was a lot lot more than that, so it's a bargain!

Didn't spot this. I would look into that with a fine tooth comb cos if it's had a haircut, you need to walk away!

ring the garage who did the stamps. could be a typo. also cambelts arent part of a normal service so could have been done at a later date. the garage should have all records.
