Looking for my old car

Right lads, realise this is going to be a bit of a long shot but I'm looking to get hold of the owner of the my old car.
Reason being I left the harness for my headunit in the car, and apparently new harnesses are impossible to obtain (its some Fusion ipod thingy)

The guy I sold it to was living in Kildare (or possibly Kilkenny) was in his early fifties and spoke with an English accent, thats pretty mush al the info I have

Like I said a long shot, but he semed to know his Alfas so thought there might be a chance someone on here might know him.

I thought it ended up in Kilkenny, when did you sell the car?
ask you mobile provider for numbers around that time.
perhaps you even have a text or 2 from the buyer on your phone.... maybe e-mail communication via donedeal?

otherwise, if you are friendly with a Guard, give them the reg number & they can tell you the current owners name + address.
Maybe some-one on here might be able to do the same via PM's

Sold it last May, good ideas there though, I'll check with the mob provider as all comms was done by text.
One of the lads used to go out with a guard so might speak nicely to her aswell

I always keep a photocopy of the log book [ V5 not used in R.o.I. ] before posting it off.

Ringing Shannon may not be of much use but it could be worth a try 061 365000

Shannon, Motor Tax dept. might be worth a try.

Nope, but upon closer inspection it apperas the screen on my old headunit is damaged anyway.
So looks like I'll just have to buy a new HU
