I love the Scoupe. If it's anything like my dad's Accent it's worth every cent. You're lucky to have found a good one. I've been looking for years and still can't find a good example. I've only seen a few bad looking ones for under R30000. Not worth it.

Make sure he fills up the gas tank before you take delivery.

Cos on a Scoupe, that doubles the value of the car.
