I even drove it back from Southampton as mechanically etc it was untouched. Matt has given me all the history, spare keys etc.

They Cat C'd it to help prevent cloning/ringing not because of the severity of the damage.

It's now had a full repaint & obviously passed the VIC check, in fact the V5 turned up today-thanks Matt.

So you see you shouldn't necessarily be put off by Cat C, or D, vehicles, people can do more damage sometimes reversing into their garage!

Now some people will try & say that it's not worth as much but why? It really only needed a repaint & most red GTV's do.

Having seen this car last week whilst collecting some rims from Clive, I can say in all honesty it looks the dogs ********. Very nice paint job, would put many a brand new factory fresh car to shame.
