    Default went to london to see the vec c

    and i was very disgusted...
    1st thing we noticed was the bumper had been replaced and for him to say it was damaged and been replaced

    2nd two different head light units one xenon and other standard for him to say oh yes we replaced that aswell

    3rd offside wing no sri badge i asked him he says i dont know

    4th radioator bent and not set right for him to say thats normall

    5th offside bushes and wishbone replaced i asked him oh yes that needed replaced aswell so i said to him anything u not told me yet??? no he said

    6th wire loom from the standard replaced head light unit was such a bad botched job was unbelievable bare wires the lot...

    7th the radio roof aerial was litterly hanging off....


    so needless to say i walked away..

    but 816 mile waster journey and 15hrs of my time and ma mates whos a mechanic that went with me

    Had this done to me a few years ago but it was only 225mile. man promised me the car was Spotless when it had be hit at the rear and fixed, dent on the front wing and the top of the door bent out where someone had tryed to break into the car.

    Really, why can they not be honest on the phone?

    That's shocking, I can't believe what they've done with the headlight. Surely canbus would throw a hissy fit
    when it sensed the AFL wasn't working properly. Also when they've replaced the bumper they haven't re-fitted
    the headlight washers so another bodge there.

    Had the same problem when looking for my vec,drove a 280 mile round trip to look at a black sri and to find it had rust on the rear arch and really bad orange peel paint work,was very annoyed and frustrated as the saleman told me on the phone it was a very clean straight car,NOT.......

    Suffice to say i turned around and walked away,its just not on,i do know what i'm looking at and these garage's/car dealers think they can rip people off.....

    Ok over........

    dont need one for a cat d only cat c and b, as mine was a cat d and dvla told me i didn't need one just get it moted at a normal mot station.
    still might be worth phoning trading standards
