        BUMP. PLEASE HELP

        Does anyone remember this thread at all of asbo's?

        After a bit of digging I am 99.9999 certain I am buying 'asbo's' car tomorrow morning and am worried that there is something wrong with the car (despite an AA Inspection).

        The seller has told me he is not a member on here and that the VXRonline stickers in his Zaffy were there when he got it 18 months ago (even though the one previous woman owner only had the car a cpl of months ). There can't be TWO arden Zaffy VXR's in Weston, Southampton with Vectra 19" snowflakes on it.

        This thread was in August and it looks like any posts here relating to the 'engine noise' of the thread name have been deleted just last week before the car was advertised. (The seller HAS told me he had a turbo pipe replaced if that could be related at all, but then why delete all reference to it and try and make the thread look like he was saying hello!? )

        Any help appreciated as I will be handing over £11,400 tomorrow morning (and was about to go to bed now )

        Or does anyone recognise this car....







        Thanks

            Yeah was going to look at that thanks.

            Though that would explain for deff that it's the same car (it must be) it doesn't explain why posts about engine problems have been deleted. So am hoping someone might remember something.

                Got a pic with the rear sensors on too, though like he said they look factory anyway I think. Unless anyone can tell different.

                    Well as it's a 3-month old thread, presumably it's all been sorted. Just that it's been edited last week right before/as the car was first advertised - (he hadn't posted anything since the day of that thread until this editing/deleting of posts happened last week).

                    I've had a full AA inspection done on it which, in the main, is ok. A few things came up but nothing engine-wise - though he does say there's nothing wrong with one inner tyre tread, brake pads are 50% not 80% worn and there's nothing wrong with the exhaust whcih the Inspection brought up.
                    Said I can see for myself when I go and look and can walk away if there is anything wrong. Plus as I mentioned earlier, he DID tell me that a turbo pipe was replaced a while ago. So could just be that, but why delete it!? - http://www.vxronline.co.uk/forum/sho...d.php?t=113803

                      A bit more digging. - His ad was on 1/11/10. I emailed him on 4/11/10 and mentioned in it that I am a member on here (as I saw the vxronline stickers). It was then on 4/11/10 afternoon that this thread got edited, after 2 months of not being online.

                          +1, I would imagine the engine related issue has NOT been solved but still decided to sell on - well, who will be the lucky or unlucky new owner. I have not used AA inspection or the like myself, does it have any guarantee?

                          I do hope my comment above is wrong, however, something stinks here, OP - asbo, maybe it is a chance you come to defense yourself, that is if you still care.

                              Die_Hard, if you still want to go ahead with the sale, may worth try to pm gsijay, , however, if I was in your shoes, the hurt for a decent bus goes on, .
