And spend 35 and get an HPI check done on it. A mate of mine bid on and won a 54 plate Punto on e-bay which on the face of it appeared to be a bargain. HPI'd it and it appeared on the hit list, something the seller forgot to mention. Seller said he bought it at auction and didn't know, but looking at the V5 it was noted on the bottom!

Annoyingly he left my mate bad feedback as he walked away from the deal. About 2 days later the car was back on e-bay under a different seller ID and still no mention of it being a repaired write off!

Caveat emptor
