    Default When buying second hand cars is not funny!!

    As posted the other week just picked up the 06 SRI 1.8, which I am very happy with. As the last 'car' was a CRV diesel it is nice to drive round corners and hear a petrol engine again.
    Went to Manchester and back yesterday in it, journey was sound, lovely in fact. Very comfy and quite frugal on the petrol as well.
    The only problem came when I found some snot on the driver's seat on the front part of the seat directly between my legs. My first thought was that one of my boys (4 and 2) had put it there when they had been playing in Daddy's new car. Unfortunately there wasn't the case!!!

    When we got to Manchester, I got out and had a proper look....I was nearly sick!!
    The previous owner must have spent all of his (surely a lady wouldn't do this!!) time picking their nose and collecting it on the seat. It is covered....but because of the angle of the seat at the front you don't see it unless you are looking for it.
    Tomorrow I will tackle it - I have too cos the thought of driving around with all that there.... makes me ill!!

    So I just wondered what nightmares other people had found in cars that they have bought?!?!?

    Surely, hopefully, nothing will bet the wall of snot!!!

    Could have been worse, they could have found a colostomy bag.

    That Autoglym Snot Remover is very good for that sort of thing I always flick mine out the window but I did notice a bit of a build up on the rear door pillar where the wind must have been blowing it back onto the car.
