Impounded Car help

Postby Ricey » Thu Jun 11, 2009 7:10 pm

K i crashed my tezza and i only had it since the day before. Now when i collected the car it had the wrong plates on it so now i have my car taxed and insured and vrt`d thye hole sha bang heh but the cops wont give back the car because the reg of the car they took is different too the one that they took. Im lost on what to do.... I got the car in dublin and the cops said its up too the guy i got the car off of too sort it out. Im just so so stressed over this. Iv been running and racing doin everything too get the car fixed but and get all the paperwork too get it back and then im told sorry we cant give it back as iv no proff that i own the car as i have papers for a 00 car and the reg is 99. Like i have taxed it. I have the vrt form with the Chassis and engine and real reg number on it. Iv comfirmd that they all match the car but still they will not release the car. Anyone know something i can do because im all out of things i can do! Im goin to see if the guy i got it off from the garage in dublin sorts it out 2n but am i right in saying he is at fault 4 putting the plates for a different car on it?? He told me i would get trade plates and i could drive it back too limerick np.

Personally i think you were mad to buy a car that was advertised for a LONG time as a 00 and drive it home on 99 plates. You say the documents are for 00 altezza, then why did you not change the plates?

Japcars are well known for putting on any old plates and log books from what ive heard. But at the end of the day, you signed the dotted line for a 00 altezza and knowingly drove it on 99 plates. What do the plates belong to did they say?

No matter what you paid for the car , , sound's like in the eye's of the law the garage still own the car..
Plus you drove the car from Dublin to Limerick WITHOUT insurance??????????
