    Left a message on the answerphone each time and still no reply. so...............googled the number, and guess what....................

    ITS IN INDIA:Rofl1:

    Yes I agree, but just doubled checked, 07585 226714 is the number that is answered by a nice english lady saying she cant get to the phone so leave a message, has a british dialing sound, the other number listed is 07585 226564 gives a dialing sound that's not uk........ with no answer??

    If these are mobile numbers they are not returning calls (three weeks now) but the 07585 is an Indian area code.

    STRANGE!!..............

    i rarely trust any advert that only has mobile contact numbers and definitely not for a vehicle of that value

    Loking at the background it reminds me of when i bought mine from BCS Manchester, althoigh the phone number does not match.
    In fact i have just looked at their site and i'm sure the picture is from there.

    Yes I agree, the background reminded me of their site (been looking most weeks) and you might be right with external views but the internal doesn't match, I don't think the plate is the same either.... the plot thickens!!!

    Pity really, we really were interested, thought that was ideal for us,,,,,,,,,

    If that's the case then it does not take much to just advise the caller, or at least remove the add........ the mind boggles!!

    Well..................................Take back all I said:Blush:

    Just spoke to the owner on the phone and it IS still for sale, but as he has had so many bulls***ers on the phone he stopped answering calls and returning calls, which I cant understand if he wants to sell as we were genuine.

    Anyway, its been left that as he is moving from Sunderland to Manchester on Tues, we can view next weekend if not sold in the meantime.

    Seemed a genuine person but still a bit sceptical........we will see.
