  1. Has live data actually been checked or is your garage just playing parts darts? And 02 sensor fault code can relate to a lot of other things. Cat could be knackered for a start.
  2. I can see yellow slip changing in the near future, or even v5’s in general. i was watching one of these police documentaries not long back and the officer on there was saying how old fashioned the way we register cars/owners is these days. He was saying cars registered in trade or fake details causes them so many problems when checking for insurance and tracing drivers etc.
  3. Genuinely interested people will work around you, people that want to view it “NOW!” and no other time is possible are usually messers.
  4. Strange how what works for some doesn’t work for others. I binned eBay earlier this year as interest seriously dried up and tried AT on a PAYG basis. For me AT was worse, even priced keenly the phone still wasn’t ringing so back to eBay I went and I’ve had the best two months I’ve had all year.
  5. Flood damaged cars are nearly always Cat B. It’s due to the fact water seaps in everywhere and may not cause issues until months down the line when corrosion starts in ecu’s etc. It’s not worth the hassle and come backs for insurance companies.
  6. Seams like for once I’m busier than everyone else for a change. Selling plenty but I can’t buy, being seriously out priced at the block for over two weeks now.
  7. Oh I agree, I just still think you have more chance of a lemon from UKCGR than a main dealer p/x so I bid accordingly.
  8. I think the problem with WBAC is where as a few years ago if someone had a major mechanical problem with a car they would scrap it, now they try there chance of getting a bit of extra cash and palm it off to WBAC instead. I know a few people that have done it themselves, I know of a guy who had quite a high spec Audi A6 and the gearbox needed a £3k rebuild. He sold it to WBAC for more than he would of got trying to sell it himself as spares or repair on eBay. Obviously it ended up at BCA, I feel sorry for the winning bidder on that one as it would of looked and sounded fine driving at walking speed into the hall.
  9. Hit and miss, there’s still some gems in there but amongst a lot of scrap. In essence worth a bid but bid accordingly. I’d never pay anywhere near Cap clean for UKCGR stock.
  10. Anything with the 1.4/1.6 PSA/BMW prince engine, never had a good one.
  11. My point is though the yellow slip would of already been filled in by the dealership/buying service that took the car in as p/x. So the V5 would arrive at the auction with no yellow section.
  12. Slightly off topic but what do auction houses do? Must take forever to inform DVLA of every car sold back into trade?
  13. Not long got back from there, prices didn’t seam bad but I didn’t get there until late so missed a lot of it.
  14. As said I didn’t see many sell online.
