That is business but you would have to be stupid or deluded to buy a car of that age and expect to make a profit on it.
Craig got good money for the car based on the cars age but it’s a shame they blatantly lied to him, you could understand them wanting to keep it in a showroom due to its condition & styling and there was no reason to disbelieve what they said.

It's a shame but with their awful write up and over inflated price I don't see it selling anytime soon

Well little update, lights were all standard when I got the car so I changed the dipped beams to high-power xenon look ones at £79 a pair lol. And the sidelights. Lights are projectors so look the same as zenons as I hate the kits they look to bright and tacky.

Image

Also shaved my Alcantara seats, got my mac3turbo out ha. Wasn't bad before but wanted it better ha.

Image

Image

Little eBay list as I failed my Mot due to my rear tyres being worn unevenly but that's it. Suspected they were bad so reading up on the rear camber and tyre wear it's common fault so I got my buying face on plus tyres from work, bridgestone potenzas 040. Plus other goodies as I couldn't resist.

Oh and the wheels coming Tuesday.
