Hi, I have been looking at buying a 1999 206 GTI from my neighbour. Has 92K on the clocks. Took it for a spin and noticed a tapping noise (like when the tappetts are out) when accelerating hard. Now when it revs parked up it seems ok so thinking probably not tappetts then. Any suggestions ?, to be fair the oil was very low so topped it up and its maybe a bit better (Pshycological ?) but is it likely to be cam bearings, small end or similar ?. He wants £850 for it and whilst I dont mind spending a couple of hundred quid on doing bits and bobs I dont want to by something problematic from the start.

Shame really if its screwed due to lack of oil as he has shown me receipts for around 2.5k in the last couple of years.

Thanks
Mark
