Last week I drove my old but beautifully preserved BMW over an overly large speed bump and smashed the catalytic converter and broke the lower arms.. The car was due for an MOT so I put it in for repairs and MOT.
The car failed the MOT because of the above damage and also breaks needed new pads. The cost of these repairs is more than the value of the car. I decided it was time for a new car.
As the car is in amazing condition and still shines like new I thought I would try to sell it for spares. I was lucky enough to sell the car for three hundred pounds.
I have now heard that the person I sold the car to has purchased a no questions asked MOT and is now selling the car for the current market value but has not carried out any of the repairs.
