Went to my local specialist earlier this week to book my 156 in for a service. I went into reception and they said "have you seen what's outside?" - my old 145QV. They said not to look to closely as it was in a real state
I sold the car less than 18 months ago and although it had done a few miles (90,000+ on a V plate) it was in pretty good nick.
I last saw the car about a year ago and the guy I had sold it to had hit a bollard and badly dented the rear side panel, which he was going to get repaired. Apparently he then front ended it and it was written off
The current owner got it as a write off and the garage had it as non starter at that stage. It was back this time as the CODE system was playing up.
Of course I had to have a closer look. It had been pretty badly repaired at the front with missing fog light surrounds and grille. The rear side panel had also been badly repaired. The less said about the interior the better.
I was not impressed
