If you were interested, you could always ask him if he's had the rust identified at the MoT treated.

All of that list tells me is the tester was having a bad day.

0 feedback ebay listings with a car that is to cheap just screams out scam.

Wasn't there something in the news recently about dodgy cars sold in the Greater Manchester area? - I'll have to try and find it; it was on the BBC.
