Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - BUYING & SELLING -

Brake-wise, look for a weak hand­brake, cor­roded brake pipes and ne­glected discs and pads; the Brembo items fit­ted to the XKR aren’t cheap. And watch for noisy wheel bear­ings, un­even tyre wear, and cheap rub­ber that points to a penny-pinch­ing owner. Al­loy wheels suf­fer­ing from cor­ro­sion and un­sightly peel­ing lac­quer can be re­fur­bished for around £70 a cor­ner. Lastly, lis­ten for knocks em­a­nat­ing from the steer­ing col­umn on pre2000 cars – it’s a known is­sue.
