Dodgie eBay listing

Postby lee771 on Tue Mar 07, 2017 8:55 pm

Has any one else seen the green 2.8 diamond on eBay? Reged as a 97 on an r plate but obviously has a K reg plate hidden behind it is square dash ect. Mot history check comes up as a 97 green diesel but doesn't give displacement and the mileage matches.

Did they even make a 2.8 in 97? I thought that they finished in 96, may have been a late registerd one I spose?

Is just proper bugging me that somert just ain't right with it

Ye I can't see anything obvious about the others either.

If it was just a plate hidden I could understand that there are a few that do it, but to cover it with a plate off another green frontera that is showing up as the same milage stinks to me.

I did notice this the other day, but thought nowt of it till you brought it up.

A quick check though seems to prove it's straight though

There's obviously some R plate 2.8's about, though I would have thought we'd have been well into the facelift 2.5's by then. I'm guessing that the truck was on private (possibly K) plates before, and these are still on the truck

there's a pretty in depth MOT history available HERE as well.

It's not uncommon for dealers who only sell through classified adds to have zero feedback as you can't leave feedback on these

The possibility of private plates makes sense and hadn't even entered my head that's a dam good shout.

Must be one of the very last 2.8s or was late being registered

All the 2.8's had the earlier square dash .. it was a weird combination of pre/post facelift. If it is an R reg it could well be new old stock.

The company behind it is only a couple of months old. I would say it is a pheonix company. Old business went under. Bought the stock off the Official Receiver cheap and started a new business.

The hidden plate could well be a private reg and he hasn't got round to properly swapping them.
