His work have unexpectedly given him a company car apparently which is arriving on Tuesday, which is why he doesn't want to give it up before then.
Honestly my feeling is that he's just a bit half-assed: the original ad had crap pictures, hardly any blurb and he'd managed to upload a screengrab of Roy Orbison's Wikipedia entry along with the pictures 😂
He was then quite hard to get hold of, but when he sent me more pictures the car looked a lot better than the pics in the ad.
If he's some evil genius he's not doing it very well, he's also been super relaxed about everything and no hard sell at all. But apparently getting Honda to fit a new compressor is £650, so yeah, there's that.
