  1. What does NAMA U mean at auction?

    Thanks for all reply’s,did ring them and they had classified as Van,so didn’t do appraisal,as a car.
  2. What does NAMA U mean at auction?

    Thought that they might have a report about it for themselves. Does sound very risky.
  3. What does NAMA U mean at auction?

    Oooooh! Thats frightening.May ring them Monday for more details. Thanks for replies.
  4. What does NAMA U mean at auction?

    So is it safe to buy do you think? Thanks.
  5. Grading for a car looking at, is it so bad can't be graded? Thanks!
  6. Sad to see production leave UK,but is it because there is little demand for diesel in EU? It's only built as a diiesel, Or is it Brexit woes?
  7. Car auctions and proxy bids!

    I thought the maximum proxy bid was hidden, just per bid shown as required.
  8. On a couple of recent occasions, car sold to me exactly at what I bid as maximum.Just makes you wonder if things are still the same. What's your experience?
  9. Suzuki Vitara bidding war?

    Think it's gone off Ebay! Perhaps will relist?
  10. Mark Carney has frightened UK today, with his predictions of doom! Commercial property down 48%,interest rates 6%,and the rest. Will cars go up or down do you think, sales are all ready well down. My thinking is a shortage of stock will keep things pretty stable, car wise. What's your thoughts?
  11. Is this possible?

    No joke, she said it did £800 of damage to alternator and electrics, they paid for. I did forget that it would be going backwards, somust have been rotating correctly.
  12. Is this possible?

    While taking an old VW diesel Sharan in part exchange,,customer said she had had a new battery fitted at Halfords,and when she drove home car was running strangely. Next day she went back and battery was fitted wrong terminalsl negative terminal to positive. Did car engine start in reverse rotation do you think?
