    Yup - i saw it when I looked after but wasn't looking for that tbh as I expect ALL cars bought from a garage to have both wipers especially "mint" ones ..... !!

    Oh well - email written to Blackburn trading standards.

    Just went to see a silver with black trid 1.1 passion locally and that only had 1 small scuff on the rear bumper and was chatting to the guy and he said he wouldn't have advertised this one as mint because it wasn't

    Yes - that's the car. And that's how the interior was when we viewed the "mint example without a mark on it" car!!

    Mobile number is different to ACS or whatever they changed their name to.

    It's got a lot of miles on it now and looking at the YouTube vids the pervious seller posts then it's no doubt been ragged to within an inch of its life and then obviously abandoned!!

    Stay well clear!

    Cat U is an Unrecorded Insurance Write Off.

    I think it is when the vehicle damage was not reported to the insurer or the driver was uninsured. Also think it is classed as a U when drivers who only have third party insurance but have had an accident that was their fault (usually not involving anyone else).

    At least it has more windscreen wipers than it had, that's a plus surely.
