I'm not an expert but I was embarrassed standing there - it took them two minutes to notice, there was a sticker on the inside of the wing and masking tape, the paint was pitted, bolts were missing, rusted and not flush on top of each other. Where tools had been used the paint on screws was missing. One headlight had an '08 sticker while the other was '10. I'm guessing the bonnet has been repaired as it lips over the plastic trims on each side and does not sit perfect. The window had also stopped with it's auto function and there is water on the hinge inside (with the indoor leak) so I wonder if that has been removed/repaired/replaced.
I am so angry and upset with LLOYD COLNE dealership, like you say it is so obvious now that it's been in an accident, to have gone through the so called "rigorous" checks any professional would have noticed straight away. Had I known about any kind of bump in the car I would not have bought it, repaired or not. I feel i have been scammed
and that the two issues I have had are too coincidental to not be related
