  5. Hello all.can you help? If I apply for new v5c ,while waiting for it to come ,can I still tax in new owners name, if someone buys car?
  6. No v5,but it is in the trade?

    Yes,Had a look,’you may be able to tax at post office’ Just wondered if registering in my garage name then private owner would confuse system.
  7. Anyone able to tell me how I shall get on with car delivered from BCA,with wrong rear seat fitted? It's a wav,theprevious owner must have put wrong seat in rear, which isn't right fittings, or colour match, you couldn't sit in it. Telephoned bca sales today, emailed with photos, nothing on their sales report about it, wondering what reply will be.
  8. BCA Not as description!

    Photos showed seat,but it not correct one,for older Peugeot,with backrest bracket,which newer ones don’t have. I think in fact it’s two small single seats required.
  9. BCA Not as description!

    I did wonder if it would be hard work! But it wasn’t as description,so will keep you all posted.
  10. Just rang Blackbushe, and they said driving license, and invoice for car.
  11. Grading for a car looking at, is it so bad can't be graded? Thanks!
  12. 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.
  13. What does NAMA U mean at auction?

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

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

    So is it safe to buy do you think? Thanks.
  16. 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?
  17. 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?
  18. Car auctions and proxy bids!

    I thought the maximum proxy bid was hidden, just per bid shown as required.
  19. Suzuki Vitara bidding war?

    Think it's gone off Ebay! Perhaps will relist?
  20. 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?
  21. 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 connected.ie negative terminal to positive. Did car engine start in reverse rotation do you think?
  22. 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.
