Get the tyre kicker mug.
The slanderous name given to people who see through car sellers. Often used by people who use after market parts to fix their car after they curb it and "their partner" has reversed it into something. They are selling a dud but need to give a reason as to why the other interested buyers didn't go through with the sale.
Look mate a swear it's 100% legit no need to make a big deal about the details it is what it is. After you I have someone else really interested in this so don't be a Tyre kicker. Sold as seen no guarantees, spare or repairs, great engine and gear box.
