I'd approach this with great caution. That's very cheap for a fulvia that purports to being in that condition. Also worrying is that the seller says he can't afford to run it, smells like there are...

I think 5000 is in that horrible area where you might get a bargain or you might get a horror. I would echo the advice of some to look for something in a higher bracket (up to 10,000 for a 1.3)....
