Hi all, This forum looks great! I found it from a tip on the Honda section of Pistonheads and I've already found a wealth of information in just a few minutes so thank you! As a bit of back story, I didn't set out to buy a Legend. I found it by accident really. As a bit of background I've just bought my first home and got married so money is tight, so cars have had to take a back seat! I'd been driving around in a horrible little Fiat Punto for the previous 11 months. It was in my family from new though, so at least I knew it's history. Anyway the head gasket went on that but the mechanic who had serviced it for the last 10 years said he'd take it and gave me £250 for it, which I thought was an absolute result for an 02 plate Punto with 97,000 miles! So I unexpectedly needed a new car and was thinking max £500, so with the £250 in my pocket, max £750. I'd been regularly stalking the classifieds and was going to go an see a VW Bora V5, but there was too much of a story with that one (basically the seller was Irish and a fan of caravans if you catch my drift) and it seemed suspiciously cheap. So having decided to give it a miss feeling a bit flat on the train home from work I put in 3.0 litre and above on autotrader, max budget £1,000 (no £750 option) and had a look what came up, which was mostly lots of knackered old Jags with no MOT's but suddenly I saw a lovely dark green Honda Legend, less than 13 miles away from me for £895 from a small dealers. I phoned first thing the next morning, and the dealer was a nice old boy who was upfront about a rear light being broken from a bit of a knock, but that otherwise it was a one owner car and in good order. Apparently a guy from Manchester had already agreed to come down at the weekend, so I knew I needed to move fast and went to see it that evening (with my very reluctant Dad as I needed a lift). I did a HPI check on the way which confirmed it really was one owner from new with no alerts / thefts etc. It was pissing down with rain, cold and miserable but it drove fine and I loved it. It was up for £895 and I wanted to knock more money off for the lights - both needed replacing, one urgently as water was coming in to the boot but the savvy old guy knew it was the cheapest Legend in the country so the best I could get was £850. We shook hands on that and he gave me no less than 4 keys! a red one still in it's packet, a valet key and two keys with remote fobs, one of which had clearly never been used. Also included was the original sales invoice for £32,000 in 1999, which was settled in full with cash! Eeek! Lights and the one knock aside, otherwise though the bodywork was in good condition and there was no rust anywhere, though the car had clearly been sat a while and I think a bit neglected in the last couple of years of it's life. However I plan to change that and have already done a fair bit of work but also have plenty still to do!
