It was one of the greatest days of my life - I bought the C3 which I had my eye on for a week.  I wanted to buy it preferably from Estonia so that I can see the car myself.  Amongst the very few possibilities, I believe that I found the right one.  All in all it is in very good shape.  The paint is perfect from two steps away but minor problems can be noticed in a few places on closer look.  The seats look like new.  I plan to replace the carpet.  Gadgets like the headlight vacuum, all lights (except license plate and dashboard), wipers, blower, electric windows, central locking all work fine.  I'm not too sure about the washer fluid pump, the tank is empty right now but when I press on the washer button, there is no sound coming from the pump.

The previous owner was a nice guy, took care of it as much as possible and replaced several things.  Some new items include: radiator, cooling system hoses, driver window motor, all new suspension (KONI), new seals on the T-tops.  He also gave me some items he bought but hasn't installed yet including: all door seals, the door hinge pins and there may be more as I haven't looked through the bag yet.
