That'll be snapped up, fixed and back on a dealers forecourt before you can catch your breath. Note it's lack of number plate so it'll be hard to spot once fixed.

Probably hpi recorded, warranty will be void, would cost quite a bit to fix properly.

I wouldn't touch it with a bargepole.

Now if it was £10k I might be persuaded.............

Looks like the one that was at the dealers that had the fire the other month someone posted a link to it on here.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Yes, definitely from the Marquis fire. I would guess that the person selling it paid around £10k for it, and fancies a £10k profit rather than the aggravation of fixing it.

I don't think I would either..... if it was that straightforward to fix it then it would already have been done and not end up on ebay! Replacing windows and stuff is straight forward enough but I can't imagine the panels being fixed up without being replaced and that would be a major job. Wonder if the insurance have paid out on this as well? Could mean selling it in the future might be difficult if so shrugg

Good point that CC. The price paid could have been the ROV and if thats the case on resale I can see problems. Depending on what damage has been done and it might not be quite a straight forward window swop it could turn out very expensive. If any heat has been on the rear despite what they say it has probably warped as the thickness of the plastic they use nowadays is a fraction of the thickness of the monocoques.

If you look he has other "damaged" listings

Having read all the posts with interest a thought occured to me scratch head (I know a rare thing these days), could the lamination between the outer skin and the polystyrene insulation layer have been compromised by the heat which was great enough to melt the windows, and/or even melted the polystyrene in places. Possible damage like this would be completely hidden from sight within the construction of the side and rear panels and not obvious at first glance think_smiley_46

It's a vehicle I would personally steer well clear of. twiddle_thumbs

It would no doubt have had some kind of impact on the insulation and god knows what else, that heat had to be pretty severe and if the fire engine attended it no doubt would have had a good hose down leaving you to wonder where all that water would have gone bearing in mind the windows would've been melted by then.

I reckon it would need a new side and rear end, new hab door and windows, new skirts, new lockers and vents at the very least......
