Guys, I can report back

I have taken this car to Graham today (should I rather say Professor Patrol?).
He is like the guys from CSI, with his little torch underneath and from above into the engine.
Then from head-to-toe, and top-to-bottom, through the whole car.
And Vanessa takes notes on a clipboard. Very quick and very effective.
Every dirty little secret you car has been party of, is revealed. I never knew you can tell this much history about a car by just looking at it?
Having your car checked out like this by Graham is not for the faint hearted!
I am impressed.

Since this is a public forum, if you are interested in knowing more about this car, rather PM me, or call Graham direclty.

HI Guys.
Always a pleasure to give my opinion on these fantastic vehicles.
Have noticed lately, sale guys don't like me too much about 5 minutes into a check-up! Especially the chance takers!
Cheers
Graham

Just spoke to the dealer again this morning.
Subsequent to Graham's inspection the dealer had interaction with SAC (who claim they only replaced the airflow, and chipped it), MW Nissan (last known service on 210' km) and the owner.

From Graham's inspection there are clear toolmark evidence that the head was taken off.
But the owner knows nothing about no head been taken off, replaced, or gasflowed.
So with that conflicting info, its a NO for me.

Various other smaller issues that is evidence of abuse and which can be addressed by a Patrol lover.
But the engine story is a deal breaker.
