Oh Great! what a complete pain for you.
I've given them a NONE refundable deposit £200 and pick it up on Monday. I assume you didn't get a chance to look at the 8RS?
I won't hold my breath and will get a return train ticket!

I had a quick look, on the outside it looked ok, pretty sure it is an RS as it has a very basic interior. Lots of gauges and stuff on the dashboard etc , i would drive it before handing over any more money though. I've lost around £100 in insurance cancellations etc but i got my deposit back, if they had refused to refund my deposit i would have jumped on the roof of the lambos outside the office.

No idea why people waste there time even going to this place. Must have one of the worst reputation for second hand cars.

As said mate get Jap HPi check as most if not all have been through the auction

Usually you get told it's a private buy job lot etc because the car is a grade R and they don't want you to know this

I've had two people contact me this last week in this same situation. One was told private sale in Japan, the other was told it was a Grade 4, both turned out to be Grade R. Mileage had been halved on one of them as well

Unfortunately I've heard / been told the same line a few times mate !!

It's a shame because honestly goes a long way and a little paint or a few miles is better than pure lies and not knowing what you're buying
