As I've said before, people buying secondhand cars can only be expected to declare modifications which are obvious, and don't require stripping the car down to its components - mondeo rear lights on the rear of a mondeo wouldn't strike me as unusual at all...


Oh dont you worry Paul, if I was pulled by the plod, that would be my plea.

"They were on the car went I bought it officer, honest. "
