Probably buy it

In the seats pic it looks to me that the instrument cluster protrudes too far from the dash. If so it could be a replacement cluster. Or is that just the dash warping and pulling away from the instrument cluster?

Other than that. I'd check very thoroughly for rust. Pull up all the carpets and check the floors and firewalls for it. The jackpoints and under the car where the rocker panels join the body. Also remove the rear seat when looking for rust.

Assuming it's in as good a mechanical shape as it looks to be rust is the only thing that would keep me from buying that car. 116's are great cars.

- but I wouldnt sell the 240D either
