Re: Buying RHD UK registered car

The buyer for pentagon here in spain is called mark, portly older chap in his 50s. Normally travels with his wife. We used to do a bit of bodywork for him, and he used to park the cars with us until a transporter picked them up :)

Re: Engine Warning Light - Automatic !TV fail???
