Long story short I sold my E36 M3 18 days ago, I sold the car in good faith with a full service history plus recent service and MOT.
The buyer looked around the car at length, I took him for a test drive (drove the car hard, did everything he asked), he took it for a test drive, we came to a deal, he took the car... everyones happy!
3 days later i get a phone call, he tells me the fuel filters never been changed (sends me photos of a filter) and asked if I knew that the clutch had gone, because it had apparently?! But that he wasn't too mad simply pointing out that I shouldn't continue using the garages I had been for the servicing. (fair point)
Today (18 days later) he rings me again to say the VANOS unit is faulty on the car and that the repair bill is around £2k, he says he's "lost" the sold as seen receipt that he made out and both signed (I should have made a copy too I know) and that he's going to get in touch with his solicitor and I assume pursue legal action!!
Its worth saying at this point that I sold this car in complete good faith, I was completely unaware of any of the faults he's now stating and on the day of the sale the car drove perfectly (and had been driving perfectly), hence he bought it. He's got all the paperwork for the car so knows i'd serviced and maintained the car regularly and had any repairs done when it needed them.
Now I'm pretty sure he's not really got a leg to stand on but do I have anything to worry about here?
I do feel for the bloke if what he's saying is true but I was genuine and sold the car truthfully.
