However, there is the small matter of actually paying for and picking up this item.. So I wont count my chickens just yet!

Not in that nice car I hope - lol glad you got one !!

Oh god no, I'm either borrowing a van or going to squeeze it in the wifes peugeot! :) :)

Hope to see you at a meet soon mate, are you going to the milton keynes run?

in case you had not thought of it, if you have roof bars for the pug, a couple of straps and your sorted for transport ;)

Sadly doesn't have roof bars!

Her next car will be a scenic so we'll be sorted in that (I think the back seats come out)

The C5 will fit in a scenic no problem, and you only need to take out two of the rear seats, and with the roof bars fitted you can put one on there, not tried that yet   :o

ouch roof bars are £50 up! not a good move considering we will get rid of the car soon.

hoping the c5 will fit with the back seats down and front seat forward. We got a whole dining table and 6 chairs in it so it's worth a go!

Still not had a definite date from seller yet :(

Hi Mate - I regularly travel down to Luton ,to visit my family, from the Kettering area and have a trailer so if John is unable to make it when you get a pick up date just ask.

That's very generous of you, thanks!

What a lovely bunch you are on here. :)

Now, I still have the problem of the unresponsive seller.... I don't want to go through the ebay grief of neg feedback etc, but then again I can wait another week or so.

Something strange going on. The original seller isn't responding, and it looks like its been relisted on ebay! Pics show the c5 next to the same trampoline! Also in hertfordshire.

Thinkk I'll send a couple of messages out to both and see what the deal is, and then if necessary get the "negative feedback" stick out to both of em

Just been looking on e-bay, there's only one C5 and it didn't look the same one although the pictures are taken near a trampoline ?
