Holy s**tbiscuits! Nice find, although at that price I am suspicious that it has some horrendous engine fault and it would blow up as soon you drove round the corner!

Re: TJet Sport 150 CAT C bargain?

seems a con really they put the cats on, it was supposed to protect us from dangerous write offs, so we got cat a and b dangerous to repair and use and c and d to say they were safe to repair and use, dont seem right that they are allowed to not re insure some thing that has an ok to repair cat mark on it

Re: TJet Sport 150 CAT C bargain?

Yep, if the damaged parts have been replaced then it is as safe as any car that has had repairs made to it.

The fact that the repairs were expensive shouldn't mean squat. Have a light front end bump and break all the plastics, lights, bonnet, radiator, aircon condensor etc and you're easily at a couple thousand for parts.
