I’m seeing this more and more and I’m really struggling with it, selling with no MOT but wanting top dollar? Although the below example is a series 3, I’m seeing it more with XJ40’s, and sometimes they are fetching better money than what better cars with MOT’s did a short while ago.
This car is a good example of this. Looks nice in the photos - but a lot of them do (it’s what you can’t see that the issue). Car hasn’t moved in 9 years, has been noted in its history more than once for excessive corrosion, selling with no MOT, that infuriating statement that it “passed the last time” (yeah mate, a DECADE ago) and then bidding starts at over £5,000.00?
It’s the son who is selling it. Can he not take it for an MOT? Unless things have changed, but selling without a certificate used to be taken as “I don’t think this thing will pass” or “it will pass but the advisory list will kill my dreams of more money”.https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre ... 4353010071
