Just to let everyone know this car was also offered for sale on autotrader and the sellers offered to get his friend to bring it around and let me view it. Obviously they had more than one key and planned to steal it back after they had been paid for it. When asked for personal details no information was forth coming other than he was working in another country with left hand drive cars and that it was too expensive to ship from Britain.
The moral of the story is remember the golden rule 'There aren't any free school dinners'.
Beware of the highway bandits.
