    A couple of things to check out.
    There’s no rust on the underside or on the body – it’s in very good condition. To the best of my knowledge, there are no mechanical faults, apart of little wining noise from the diff, but nothing to worry about.

    The wheelarch chrome embelishers will be hiding something and diffs can be fairly expensive C-£250+.

    Looks like a fairly clean example.

    I agree with Dieseleman WRT the wheelarches and diff - but for a 650 quid 200k mile car I think I'd live with those issues. Unless the diff is really loud and clonking like mad I'd imagine it'd last a good few more miles yet.

    Does it look like it might be worth much more? £900 perhaps?

    Because it's too dear.

    Wait then make an offer after the auction ends.

    an automatic bid at the maximum you want to pay placed in the last minute of bidding is the way to go -- never mind you dont sound too miffed

    It's a bit annoying, but the fact is when it's gone it's gone. Got to move on. That's how I treat my women, and it works for me.
