that happens so often

My current car was sold whilst I was mid-negotiations, only for the other buyer to fail finance and it be re-offered to me the following day

Presume they’re delivering it to you, given current restrictions? Be interesting to hear if it’s been honestly described when you clap eyes on it 👍

If not, send it back.....

I bought a Q7 2/3 years back now. Returned it twice. To Southampton on a truck they sent. Had an A6 loaner for weeks. Final time it came back the driver had strapped the wheels badly and rubbed off the paint on the alloys. They also misplaced one of its keys and to be honest, I'd lost all love with it by then. So cancelled it. Sent the guy home. Unwound the finance, returned my deposit, cancelled all the Audi aftercare products. Right admin pain for them.

They relisted it that day for 4 grand more to cover their costs, it still sold straight away. It was one heck of a spec on it.

Oh dear! I am not in the least surprised that at 14k miles a car like this might need a tyre or four.
Rust underneath a 2016 car is something I would not expect.
