I'm surprised you've started another thread complaining yet again about a trader/seller advertising your old car without including Cat C in their description...........................
............because............................... .............. NEITHER DID YOU!
I'm now sure that you're really just p'eeed off that you undersold it.
Clive.....I'm not entirely sure why you are so aggressive towards Jim, and why you seem to rely implicitly on what the guy who bought the car off Jim told you...
"....there may be more to this than first thought?
Having had a long text conversation with the seller, quite interesting. He's not a trader & is going to Canada on a 3 year contract. Apparently he paid £1200 & then spent approx another £1000 on suspension, tyre , roof electrics, diff & road tax.
Maybe the OP would like to 'expand' on what he actually told the seller & indeed included in his original Ebay listing? Cat C for instance?
The seller's listing clearly states the V5 is in his name at his address.
The car is now sold to a new owner who traveled 170 miles knowing it was a Cat C & apparently phoned to say he was very happy with the car after he'd driven it back home.
Now all or some of the above may or may not be true, including who has been 'economical with the facts'?"
Apart from the fact that it would be odd to buy a new "pride and joy" just before going off to Canada on a 3 year contract, it would also seem odd that the money he claims to have spent on "suspension, tyre , roof electrics diff etc aren't mentioned by the current seller....OK maybe he road taxed it
The new owner who is advertising it - again after only owning it for about six weeks - may have travelled 170 miles, but given that he lives in Bolton, and the guy who bought it off Jim was in Chesterfield, he must have been on a very pretty route......'cos that's only about 60 miles by the usual route......
Of course the current seller may have a problem with the truth, too.....he says the car has a new clutch.....given that the guy he bought it from only described it as "as new" this is surprising......and of course he isn't registered as a trader, but is interested in part-exchanges.......
So - as a fellow trader - I suggest you climb off your high horse, and accept that Jim has a right to point the finger at those "traders" who inhabit the murky world of Ebay to make their profit without complying with the constraints that legitimate traders have...the trade has enough issues with mistrust without legitimate traders defending illegitimate ones
