Early 20's city wankers, strutting round thinking they're the next Reggie Kray.

No sunshine, you're a middle-class pretty boy from Surrey with a 2.2 degree from a third rate Uni, renting an over priced room in a shitty flat-share in (the so 'up and coming' that it's come and gone part of) East London!

Have some class, boys!

You couldn't make this shit up...

So I bought a salvage 2015 Focus for £3,500 (scrape all along the whole nearside from front to back), spent just over £1,500 fixing it (two new doors, rear bumper and front wing) so owes me a shade over £5,000. Finally got it back from the bodyshop https://www.vouchercodes.co.uk/static/v10/images/merchant/logo/128px/27_160420110828.png about a week ago and advertised it on eBay for £6,500...

A lovely young couple came over to look at it tonight, I pulled it off my driveway so they could take it for a test drive and they parked their car in the space it had just moved out of.

Sat at the bottom of the driveway chatting for a bit before we pulled off and WALLOP their car had rolled down the driveway and smacked straight into the side of the Focus. The same side that had JUST been repaired. Now needs two doors but fortunately no damage to the sill or front/rear wings or bumpers.

Both parties totally gutted!


If it was salvage, I presume you needed to declare it as a category write off? Did you?

Locum doctors.

Being lectured today about my weight (6'2" and 16 stone) by a midget asian who was nearly spherical.

My usual doctor has been massively helpful in getting my weight and blood pressure down. Not at all critical and always positive.

This locum has left me feeling like I want to kill.

Ahh people with Space Hopper complex. They know you're fine and doing better than they are - they're frustrated and venting at you!
'If you're taking the piss, I don't think you're very funny' usually scares them into apologising.

Last time I was 16 stone I thonk I was 16 years old, went up to 30 stone, but the nearly dead thing took 10-12 stone off.

16 stone is nothing to worry about really.

So they’ve bought a 3.5k car for 6.5k by the sound of it and it’s in pretty much the same state as it was when it was salvaged.

I think i’d have rather put the damage through insurance than felt obliged to buy a write off for the same as a full price car.

I presume their third party insurance would cover their car rolling into an insurance write off which was probably not insured, so shouldn’t have even been on the road when it was hit, even briefly? Mmmm..

I think OP has had a lucky result here.

i hope so...

Wife took my Freelander to Landy dealer for service.. asked them to look at passenger door, which wouldn't open from keyfob (it went clunk, but would open from inside so seemed to be sticking).
They charged extra £350!! B'stds.
Claimed they had to strip right down and change parts.
I think they saw a woman come through the door and took the P. Probably squirt with WD fixed it.

Sorry whose sock did you say you were again?

Full of shit today aren't we.

Do Currys buy in TVs and then sell them to the general pubic for the same price as what they paid for them? Or do they sell them to make a profit?

That car is actually slightly under-priced at £6,500 to take into account its cat N status. At that price it's the cheapest one like it on Auto Trader and eBay. What I paid for it is irrelevant, if there's a profit in it for me that's my prerogative. I had the inclination and invested money, time and effort into the project. It's only right that I should make a profit from it. And that profit comes from purchasing the vehicle for MUCH LESS than simply the market value minus the cost of the repairs. Not from mugging someone right off and selling it above its market value. So no, it's not a £3,500 car. It's a £6,500 to £7,000 car currently with about £400 worth of damage to it WHICH THEY CAUSED.

When I bought the car it had been scraped all up one side from front to back. Ripped the rear bumper off, cracked the rear light cluster, damaged the rear wing, both doors and front wing. Also the lower suspension arm and track rod were bent which has all been repaired. Total expenses including parts, labour, train fare to collect the car in the first place, lunch and refreshments that day, a bit of diesel put in the tank, insurance (yes, insurance!), mechanical repairs, valet, V5C document replacement fee, stamp, eBay listing, my own HPI check... EVERYTHING came to a shade over £1,500

The only damage the car has now is to both doors. Get both doors in the same colour and it's a bolt-off / bolt-on job. Doors should be about £150 a piece and an hour labour max. Should be able to be put right again for comfortably under £400. But that's down to them, not me.

I took her out for a test drive in it anyway and she really loved it anyway. I said obviously it's got to be paid for but no pressure as to how they want to go about it. I gave them the option of going through their insurance, paying for the repairs themselves or just buying the car as-is. Looks like they're buying it as-is but will find out for sure on Saturday. I've also said I'm happy to help get the repairs done (at their expense) as I can get trade prices. So my conscience is clean mate. This wasn't some elaborate set-up in order to con them into buying a car they don't want. I haven't forced them into anything, and it's not MY fault that THEIR car rolled into MINE.

And yes, it was insured, taxed and MOT'd at the time it was on the road and their car rolled into it, and it still is, as I've taken it out of storage and have been using it privately for the past few days since one of my cabs' engine blew up on Saturday night so I got temp insurance until the end of the month as that's when I collect a new addition to the fleet. Bummer is, if it does sell on Saturday I literally have no transport until the end of the month (other than 6 motorcycles or a 21-seater coach).


There's a difference between making a profit and taking the piss.

Just another example of doing what someone can get away with, without a care in the world about whether it's right or wrong.

Don't like fact then?

You have sold an insurance write off for full price. The people who have paid full price have ended up with a car which was in the same state as it was as a write off, for full price money. You also admitted to not declaring it was a write off in the advert, so they had no prior knowledge of this before coming out to view it.

As for the insurance. I'm not sure I believe you, as your version of events has now been modified to suit your argument. Why would you insure it just to do up and sell? Where are you getting short term insurance from? I suspect you parked it on a public road, uninsured and it got hit. I'd be surprised if their third party insurance would pay out for damage to your insurance write off, which with no valid insurance to be on the road at the time their car rolled into it, so shouldn't have been there anyway.

You've been quite lucky as dodgy car dealers go IMO as they could have legally told you to do one, even for just listing it without advertising it as a write off.

Women and cars AGAIN

Wifie coming in from running - 'I've had a bit of a bump, but don't worry, I'm fine'. While trying not to say hows the car I asked what happened? Seems she reversed into another car, no don't know what car but she cracked the bumper of it, that's all.

THAT'S FUCKING ALL Evil or Very Mad

Stupid bitch. I just hope it's not too serious as we have multicar so that's my NC fucked as well if it's too expensive to pay cash. Will find out tomorrow when other person (another female) can get hubby to look at it.

AND

Youngest daughter has got a slow puncture on MY Twingo. Can I look at it? Me 'Um, it's dark out there so no I can't. Bring it round Sunday day time, here's a compressor to keep it pumped up.'

'Oh, I'm going riding Sunday, how about tomorrow?'

No, tomorrow I am either going to spend the day in the pub or on the boat, both with copious amounts of alcohol watching the rugby and forgetting about women.

Bring it round Sunday day time

Arrrrrrgh
