I think everyone can see it's you who has your head in the clouds. Who really leaves there car at a garage for over a year and a half, then blames the garage and accuses them of not doing the work???? I think maybe you need to sit back and have a look at the situation with your reality glasses on!!!!
As I already said Tony.. you were the one who agreed delivery dates and didn't stick to them..
I even turned up unannounced at your garage and we agreed over a handshake a date for getting the car ready for me - and you still failed to get it sorted.
You were the one who then asked me for money to buy parts for the car to pass it's MOT - which after two attempts (allegedly) it still didn't do, even though you had a list of parts that needed changing... (that I paid you for) and to clarify, when a car goes for it's MOT, it's logged on the DVLA website - if it passes/fails or any advisory's issued... why is there no information pertaining to the two MOT's you claim you paid for on the DVLA website?
You keep prattiling on about the "year and half" I left my car with you.... Well, I can respond as follows:
a) If you had rebuilt the engine to the required standard in the first place, it would not have needed to come back for remedial work - which you were going to do free of charge - and then took forever to get sorted out
b) You kept telling me the car wasn't sorted and pushing back the collection date
c) While it was with you the MOT expired and I had to SORN the car. I asked you to get it MOT'd and I would pay for this. You then offered to pay for the MOT as a way of making up for the time it was taking to sort the car out... as long as I paid for the parts.
d) I pitched up unannounced to talk to you as I was in the area for meetings. You promised to get the car sorted out - and you even offered to replace the stereo that had been "stolen" from it! (or have you forgotten that fact to?)
These are the facts of the situation, and as you have failed to respond to my PM (as you requested), and decided to stick with public insults of a former customer who gave you money to do work you clearly had no intention of doing... I must feel that it is appropriate that I stick to the public forum too.
According to your new user profile here, you are now living in Devon and driving an Aston Martin... That's not bad for someone who went bust and laid off all your staff because you couldn't afford to pay them... (your words... to me... on the phone...). I wish I could afford to live in Devon... and I dream of owning an Aston Martin..!!! Maybe I need to ***** my services out to innocent people, charge them money and not do any work for them... Then I can argue the facts, call everyone an idiot, buy an Aston and run away to the country with my high maintenance partner and retire on my ill gotten gains... sounds like a perfect plan to me! Clearly it works!!
So, be the man you claim to be... PM me, let's discuss this like adults.. You have my details, you have my phone number.. you have my personal and work email address... I wait to hear from you.
