Pink or Brown?........... no joking
I bought my VXR about 4 weeks ago.
Upon leaving I was informed that it had been given the "Peter Vardy" 114 point check! oooo
Anyway, on the way home it got dar so put the lights on, Drivers xenon not working (car only done 16k miles).
I called them and it went in a few days later and had bulb replaced.
Next coupld of days, it got foggy, switched them on, Drivers fog gone...
So I though, cant be arsed going back il get one on Ebay. It arrives next day and i get under car to change it, only to find that there is no fod unit AT ALL behind the glass just the wire with no bulb or connector...... (after a closer look under the car a few days later, I find the connection hidden behind the radiotro area with a smashed bulb....
I then had a little look around the wings and its clear that drivers wing has been painted.
I tried to get a contact number for the last owner, but failed so simply hit the "home" button on the sat nav and drove all the way to his house in Aberdeen on Saturday. He was shocked to say the least to see the car, but told me that he had sold the car to a local garage in March 2010.
He is the last name on the V5.
As we were chatting i put the drivers window right down for the first time since owning the car and we both noticed at the same time glass shards in the window rubber of the drivers side..........
I leave, mind beginning to spin. I decided to call the garage that he sold the car too in March. No record of vehicle on their system.........
Then I get a text from last owner saying "I remember seeing the car for sale a month later at ANOTHER garage".
So I called the Other garage, they confirm that they indeed did have the car but they sold it to a man in Berkshire...........
I gain name and address and have tried to get number but not managed, so have sent a recoded delivery letter asking if it was involved in an accident. (awaiting responce)
So I call Pete Vardy, they claim that any accident damage would be picked up by this 114 check.
They also advised that the car was bought, by them, at auction in Surrey in September.
So my car has been floating about in Berkshire, without being registered to the new owner between April and September, in which time it would look like it has been in a smash.
Then, out the blue, i get a phone call from the car garage that sold it to Berkshire guy saying" I remeber him now, an Asian gent, he tried to get us to buy the car back from him roughly 1 - 2 months after he bought it!"
Peter Vardy are advising that there is nothing they can do as the history check came back clean......
Is there nothing i can do?
any help appreciated lads and lasses
