tbh Mike, with you vendor i think it time to treat as a waste of time, so cut your losses (in a time sense) and look for another one.

annoying to be let down i know, but 5's in various conditions are turning up all the time on Ebay etc. so being pragmatic and adding a bit of patience, will serve you well imo.

given the laxity in responding ,this machine might well have been a 'pig in a poke'.

Totally agree

I've returned to my other great hobby though, collecting old arcade games. My garage will be full of em soon!

I'm also having some fun and games with Ebay users at the moment. My mini-el is up for sale on Ebay and I'm starting to get the usual pointless questions - but someone also made an offer then refuses to respond to my emails ! What's that all about ?

Ok, I've now secured another C5, and with any luck will be driving up to derby on Sunday morning to Retrieve it!

Anybody on here between Derby and Bedford that might fancy meeting up to give me some pointers? :)

First thing i'll need to do in any case will be clean up, new battery (gel?) and new tyres...

Looks like I might make the MK meet after all!

Great to hear you've got a C5 after all the problems you had, as one of my old black and white heroes (George Forby) would say :- "its turned out nice again"  :D
