considering a 2004 se-r spec V
I'm looking for a car to do some auto X this summer.
I came upon a 2004 se-r spec v with 65 000 miles on it.
I didn't know much about these car but been doing reading about them for the past week and it seems like a good contender for what I want to do.
I talked to a friend who had one and he warned me about the precat failiure on these cars. I also read on the web about it.
My question is, should I keep this from buying this car ? Is there irreversible damange that might have been done to the car because of this ? Is there any ways to know if damage was done to the engine ?
