There are several people posting in this thread that have openly and deliberately done unsavoury and underhanded things in an effort to prevent me trading on this forum, going back at least a year, with no provocation. No, you haven't. Not even in the slightest. What you've done is slur my name on here, threaten legal action and not bothered to contact me directly or reply to me when I responded to the ONE SINGLE message Stefan sent me about it. And quite rightly so, hence me offering to take the car back. It's rather the other way round. Since my reply earlier in this thread I have received no contact, and both Carl and Stefan have my phone number. It would not be inconceivable to phone me to discuss this? But instead they don't bother, and just post here. I have not been revisiting this thread, I feel I made it clear that discussions should be private and waited for that contact. Crying about being "de-friended" on facebook is for high-school girls, but - lets get some facts straight here. I'm not keen on this "we're being truthful" line you both keep peddling and yet this type misinformation like this on this thread... 1. You were "de-friended" a week after the car arrived, before I had heard ANYTHING from you or Carl, before I knew about this thread, when it seemed there was no problems and the car was safely delivered. 2. Facebook asked me to change my surname - this only happened yersterday, I've used the same name for several years so I can only assume that someone with a grudge against me reported me to the Facebook secret police. Convenient for you that you can then make it look like I'm doing it to hide, right? Or you could just ring me. Or PM me. You have dealt with me many times before and not complained, therefore I assume satisfied. Stating otherwise is a lie. You also continue to sully my name even whilst insisting you "have not said a bad word" about me. The person I bought it from built it as a track car. I took what had been done and made it a nicer place to be, so it became a fast road/track car. This is the reason it never had a paint-job and had various scratches etc. Edited your post because it's got unnecessary profanity in it. As per usual. Once again this was a personal car. You have no idea of what I am interested in and i think you will find if you took the time to read my earlier reply that I am offering a full refund. It actually was washed the night before it was picked up however it got dark before it could be polished. Leather cleaning and waxing products were left in the car. It boils down to this. If Carl was genuinely, severely annoyed with the car, he would return it. He uses the excuse of the transport costs, but did not contact me in any regard about this. Now if someone had a car delivered that was SO far away from the description and didn't want it, he would ask the seller to cover transport back, or collect it, or arrange something in this regard. Carl has done no such thing. This makes clear to me that Carl in fact does not want to return the car. Therefore he is still happy with it in some regard. Since posting here and also responding on facebook that he should return the car, neither Carl nor Stefan have been in touch at all. They have all the details they need to make contact, but have chosen not to. They are clearly interested in running me down and badmouthing me here, but not interested whatsoever in reversing the deal. I have not shied away from this. I have not avoided the issue. I have offered a full refund in exchange for my car back as it was when sold, i.e. not missing all the pieces I added to it. No private sale has any recourse in that extent, and I have offered it straight away, not after legal action or protracted wrangling, but straight away. I feel I made it clear that I am not open to debating this out over a public forum. All my contact details are freely available but have not been used. I have waited for that contact. None has been made, but plenty of inaccurate and slanderous posts have been. The option has been given to obtain a refund of monies in exchange for the return of the car, but it has not been taken, it has not even been discussed, it has in fact been dismissed out of hand with not even a direct reply, and at the end of the day if Carl chooses to keep the car rather than take me up on that then I can only assume that he wants to keep it and that is fine if that is his choice, but to then slander me further after that only speaks to his attitude, not mine. As to the people in this thread doing the name calling, grow up. This isn't playschool. And none of the "bring the rugby team over" threats either. It's neither big nor clever, and I WILL report threats of violence.
