Hmmm. Good point.
I have a feeling he's a car breaker though, so I wouldn't be surprised if he
turns up with a recovery wagon to take it away. That's hapened with other
cars I've sold on Ebay.
I'm actually quite chuffed with how this has turned out.
I paid �170 for it, 8 months ago, and now I've sold it on for �102. That's 8
months driving for only �68.
What a Billy Bonus.

I though things like cars and white goods etc were exempt from the POD
proviso in the Buyer Complaint Policy as they can't be posted?

They are but I guess some people think it makes the thread more fun if
