Hello all

I'm from India and I've found a 1996 Mazda MX6 for sale (there are less than 10 in the country.) It's a 2.5L V6 KL-DE with the manual transmission. It was imported from South Africa (built by Mazda there under a joint venture called SAMCOR).

The car has done only 32,000km or so since it was purchased. It's been sitting idle for the past 3 years. It fires up all right I'm told, but the owner mentioned "white smoke" that he said was cleared with an engine flush (I don't know how using engine cleaner clears white smoke but I'll take his word for it until I see the car). He also mentions some "misfire" which he says is due to worn ignition wires leading to the coil pack.

I'm attaching pics of the car.

What do you guys think? What should I be checking for, before buying this car?

Below are the list of repairs that the current owner feels should be done with the car. He says it runs fine but all this is part of "due diligence" as this car is more of a barn find type of affair and will need a full restoration.

1. AC heater climate control unit
2. 300mm sports steering wheel
3. RVM left
4. Ignition cables
5. Radiator
6. Ignition leads
7. Brake pads
8. Dayco Timing Belt kit
9. Engine mounts
10. Clutch master cylinder
11. Fuel pump
12. FR brake disc set
13. TPS
14. Spark plugs
15. Rod ends front left
16. Crank pos sensor
17. Water pump
18. Tyres
19. Full body respray

Do check out the pictures and let me know what you think! I'm looking to keep this car for at least 10 years after buying it. I'm handy with tools but I'll need to import all the parts from abroad, so any help in that matter is appreciated too.

Here are the rest of the pictures.
Note that this is a duplicate of the thread in the Beginners section, I'm not seeing any response there so I thought I'd post here for better visibility.
