Lets put a few things straight shall we? When you started the car up, I mentioned to you that the (!) light was on, and that I thought it might be the rear pad wear, as I know the back brakes were looking pretty old, you said that it didn't look like the pad wear light, but you "weren't worried". On road testing the car, I suggested to you that we take it down the bypass, for a more thorough test, but you said you'd seen enough, and we turned back. You knocked me down £100 (£500 down on my original asking price) and we shook on it, you gave me the cash and then proceeded to fill out the V5 in somebody elses name, and forged their signiture. When you left, I posted my part of the V5 to the DVLA, so as not to get umpteen speeding tickets I never earnt. So far, so good........ You texted me that evening and mentioned the gearbox issue, which was news to me, I hadn't driven the car in a while, and last time I had, the gearbox had operated just as it should. I responded: "Could it just need the transmission fluid toppping up? I remember my Dad talking to Quarry motors as he was wanting his fluid and filter changing on his transmission, and the guy there said 9 times out of 10, they get issues with cars that have had the fluid changed, so they recommended just topping it up.his car went through phases of not shifting up, but after a top up, it behaved ok. Worth a try?" The next day, you called me to tell me that you'd topped it up to no avail. I was pretty gutted, but then you proceeded to tell me that any car purchased now is subject to a 3 month warranty!!!!! I told you that there may be some warranty on a car bought from a dealership, but you were adamant that it applied and that you were bringing the car back. I wasn't going to get lumbered with a car that had no V5, and pointed that out to you and that the V5 wasn't even in your name. You started accusing me of being a liar, which fairly pissed me off, and left me seriously dissinclined to offer any kind of reccompense. I should point out that the citizens advice bureau confirmed that a private sale IS sold as seen, and final, unless a deliberate attempt has been made to dupe the buyer has been made. I did no such thing, and if you're attitude had been less accusing, I might have offered at least a partial refund. I didn't know that it was also the transmission light (neither did you and you're some kind of pro, so go figure...). As far as the pad wear sensor wire, about 2 weeks after I got the car, I was trying to get the handbrake to work a little better and noticed one of the 2 wires to the sensor was broken, so soldered and shink sleeved it. If I had bridged it, the light would be permanently on! I'm glad you discovered the fault, and I hope the fact that it's just an ABS sensor (the sensor that always seems to be the source of ANY E39 issue) means you are now happy with your purchase. It was always a good car to me, and if I hadn't required the money, I'd have never put it up for sale. Oh, and no, I never touched the ABS sensor. viewtopic.php?f=11&t=39960 Without your accusations, this whole thing could have been resolved a little more amicably. BTW, you are welcome to the undertrays if you still want them.
