The guy was aware it was a cat c.The guy did recieve the v5, you stated yourself he had it in his name he has only had the car around a month .There is an implication i sent childish emails to the seller a rather bizzare statement along with the previous suggestion that he spent £1000 on hood repairs a diff and suspension repairs (it had a new mot) the hood was fine and whilst your not a motor mechanic i am, the gearbox was fine.Im suprised in the few weeks he has owned "his pride and joy" he had any time to drive it taking into account all of the work undertaken no mention of that in his advert but we have only your word for that.
This thread has got you rattled i still have not figured out your motive and as i stated before "sometimes the more someone elaborates the more obvious its a load of rubbish".Im not repyling to your rants any more as ive achieved my aim.
I didn't imply you
sent any emails to the seller.
I'm probably as much a motor mechanic as you.
Apparently top suspension mounts were replaced by the your buyer, along with other work...not a gearbox.
I'm not rattled at all, rather intrigued that you didn't mention Cat C in your advert either.
Basically I think you are rather peeved that you obviously undersold it & thought the guy was a motor dealer trying to make a profit out of you.
You could've contacted him to advise him to mention the Cat C, something he doesn't have to by law in an advertisement, but you chose to rant on about him in this thread.
I only got involved when details about Cat Cs etc was being discussed incorrectly/generalised. I couldn't care whether he's a dealer or not, it was a good advert compared to others I've seen.
IMO, your aim was to prevent someone paying over the odds, & the seller making a profit, but you failed, so you've achieved nothing. The buyer knew it was a Cat C without any help from you or this thread.
Best you follow his Ebay id & mobile phone number to check he emigrates.
