Okay got it. I can't help thinking though as chris has sold the car and only has it for another few days, that this on top of the other purchase circumstances will contribute to him having difficulties in getting compensation.
I do hope he does though and that he lets us know his progress.
Lets put a positive slant on this instead of being so negative. Nothing comes out of it well so be it but you get nothing for not trying.
I wish him well in his efforts, and I am sure the members here will gladly offer any further assistance if required.
