Please read BEFORE posting a for sale or wanted ad

Due to the increase number of for sale and wanted threads appearing, the need for a few 'ground rules' has arisen.
  • Please begin your thread title with either 'FOR SALE' or 'WANTED' to avoid confusion.
  • Please state your location, even if this is available on your profile.
  • When selling, please indicate a price.
  • Where possible, please try to include pictures (this applies mostly to vehicles rather than parts) as it will improve your chances of a sale.
  • Try also posting your advert in the proper Classifieds section on the club website.
  • And finally, please post when your item has sold or you have found what you are looking for so we can close the thread to avoid unnecessary hassle.

Adverts not conforming to this structure may be locked without notice until the necessary changes are implemented to avoid the unnecessary clogging up of the forum with people repeatedly asking the same questions.

Many thanks

  • Buying using the internet? Be aware!

    There have been a number of social media posts recently concerning a seller based in North Wales who is going by the name of Dewi Ditchfield. Apparently he has a number of other internet profiles, but this one seems to be the most prolific. He advertises parts for a number of car ranges including ours, and requests payment in advance of sending them to the buyer, but won't accept PayPal.

    The general concensus of those who have been impacted by this person, is NOT to deal with them in any form. If you are making purchases from non-commercial advertisers, then ensure that you only pay by credit card or PayPal so that you are protected should something go wrong with the transaction.

    If you have any detailed information concerning the person mentioned above, then it would be beneficial if that information was reported to the correct authorities.

    Yup, been scammed by same Dewi Ditchfield for 90. Apparently he's still active and well.
    Police report has been filled in with all details, screenshots (including his bank account at moneymona).
