Subject: Used buying advice for a Rancilio Silvia
 

I have a chance to buy a used Silvia for $200.  It's 5 years old and in excellent condition according to the owner but I haven't asked anything else.  I am not sure what version it is but its not a V3 as it has the old steam dial and portafilter handle.  Does this seem like a reasonable price and what should I be asking and looking for regarding the condition of the machine?

If you test it and it works that's a great deal. Mine was similar for $300 for a v2.
