    I went there today to just have a look, they seem to have changed their name? There was no activity there it was closed up (although the other units to the side were repairing cars). Didn't see any ferraris, just a beemer that may have belonged to the next garage.

    This is what I reported last week. If you turn around from where your bike is positioned, go back up the road, turn left then first left, you will see a newer building with Verdi above the door.

    I think your images work, but as a heads up to others, the site they're on gets blocked by McAfee as a risky site.

    With age comes wisdom. As the knucklehead who erroneously banned stevef numerous times, I have since been of the opinion that stevef is one of the finest human beings to have ever walked the earth.

    Fair comment by Steve though.........CS is knee-deep in pompous, self-important types....and they wonder why membership is falling. It's all far too "Little Britain".

    As for Verdi, a business of that nature doesn't get into its current position "by accident". He'll likely have been treading a very fine line for some time now, and would have been very well aware of the cash flow issues (likely hour by hour). This happens every day, but the mark of a man is how he deals with these challenges, particularly in whether he procrastinates and, insodoing, compounds the problem.

    People understand when businesses go bust, but find it hard to fathom if/when the losses are compounded by actions arising from the denial of the owners.

    I suspect everyone remained on Xmas vacation all last week - Hopefully, things will return to normal next week and "all will be revealed".....

    Wow! Just wow!.... I assume the ad will get pulled as soon as someone tells Autotrader the story (?) Gotta give it to 'em for having some balls though! "Due diligence" anyone! ;)

    Cheers,
    Ian

    Verdi Performance Sales must be a new company.
    Verdi Ferrari (Aftersales) - winding up
    Verdi Ferrari (sales) - dissolved
    Verdi Imports - dissolved
    Verdi Performance Workshop - dissolved

    Unfortunately there's nothing illegal about starting a new company, but hopefully the authorities will nip it in the bud pretty quickly if fraud has been committed, before anyone else falls victim to these people.

    ... If indeed the car is 'real'. Have heard in the past of people being spun a line about "car not here yet", "loads of people interested", "could have sold it 5-times over", "if only I had more", etc. etc.

    Then, "I'll tell you what, if you like I can reserve it for you. Just give me £10k deposit, no obligation, if you don't like it when you see it then I'll give you your cash back, no problem"...

    Whether you see the car or the cash again, well... Who knows?

    Caveat emptor.
