I would imagine there is but i'm sure they'll have a book full of excuses for cars that they have already sold.

If it works out the way i hope it to then it will stop the trade of selling damaged and high mileage vehicles for large sums of profit at the customers expense. Buyer beware and all that

The downside is people who have already been fleeced and when they come to sell potential buyers now a have a tool that they didn't.

All pie in the sky though until the few who have bought a full report get back to us

Cheers dude! Fair enough. Mine is a tommi all the right numbers so possibly a mistake at the auction. I know mine was a grade R so don't need to get a report. I may have it somewhere anyway.

My view is I saved it from being broken and a little tlc I knew what I was buying.

Fair play, if you know it was grade R then there is no harm done. Theres some good bargains to be had.

A full report might be interesting though as it will (and i bloody hope it works after all this ) tell you date and extent of accident / damage.

Yeah I have always been curious. It got fully repaired and restored to factory over here. I could not afford it any other way. I see it as saving it, especially now as numbers are dwindling. I will order the sheet then out of curiosity in a couple of weeks or so (completing on first house in two weeks) see what it says. I don't need to hide its history. Doubt it will ever go!

Just looked at my web-design and i can upload any document (apparently) for people to click on and download?

I can also create a slide show ... not sure what that looks like

Can i ask that people click through my website banner rather than going direct, i get alittle bit of commission (and it is alittle bit too!) that will go partly towards the running costs of my site.

Thank you
