I would have thought this was a issue worth passing past the local authority Trading Standards team as well as the RAC if they have inspected it.
The dealer appears to have knowingly sold a vehicle that would not pass an MOT , i.e. not considered to be roadworthy. Worse than that they would appear to have intentionally circumvented the MOT system, by swapping wheels just to get a pass.
It’s not that long ago that a trader down here got fined for selling a car with a valid MOT that it could not have passed due to corrosion. Fined, reimbursement of customer and compensation if I remember correctly, all driven by the trading standards team.
Wheels this time what will it be next time ????

Hiya guys

So atm im in a dispute with the dealer I brought my car from as the rear wheels are cracked. And they have sold the car knowing this which goes against them.

So my options are.

1st option

Demand two new genuine 326 alloys. Which is going to cost them quite a bit.

2nd option
See if they will just buy a set of reps from cmwheels for me as a whole set will be cheaper than one 326 alloy.

What et should I be looking at for the e89.

Cheers guys
Threaten bad press etc the power of the forums and social media could have a bad knock on effect for them. I'm sure members on here people would post comments on them, especially for something of this nature. What they done is pure negligence and very dangerous. I would get a statement from the M.O.T station for evidence.
Cheers Gary

Cheers guys.

Car got picked up with them today and has been sent back to mot garage who have said straight away wheel is cracked and would never of passed its mot.

The mot place is trying to get hold of the cctv footage of the car arriving on different wheels.

Depending on how fair the garage is we will be taking this further with trading standards etc.

Unless they can prove the wheels was repaired before been put back on the car they dont really have a leg to stand on.

And also if this was the case they would of had to point the fault out to me but nothing was said and no paper work saying about wheels was included with the car.

Let's hope they sort this or they can have the car back and I'll go else where. :driving:
