Stand Out Features
When buying a new car in general one must look for things like body panels that are out of line, or load bearing beams that seem to have been damaged. The next thing to check whether the paint is original or it has been repainted, a quick check under concealed plastic panels is a great way to check for unmatched paint. Another thing to check for is underbody rust in humid or sea adjacent areas.
A good way to check if the car has been rear-ended is by checking the boot. Flip open the spare wheel cover and remove the wheel completely. If the car was repaired after an accident the floor will have visible signs as the surface wouldn’t be smooth as it would in an undamaged car.
In the end, always remember to check for complete documentation including service records. Also, do check with the insurance company for any past claims, which will make you aware of the accidents the car has been involved in. Last but not the least, get the car checked from a trusted workshop before closing the deal.

for Rolls-Royce Dawn
the car is amazing. love its classical look, a real beauty like this are very difficult to spot on the roads. i am lucky to be one of the owners of such a beauty. it converts easily at higher speeds without any problems. it has been driven upto 180KMH. one thing that bothers me a little that it doesnt have much service centres in the country. first thing is that i am proud that our country has a branch of Rolce Royce. i have done a trip of 800KM in my DAWN. it doesnt have any competition. good work ROLCE ROYCE.
