    This check doesn't make sense it says the car is not an insurance write off yet it is recorded as Cat C salvage with pictures of substantial damage? When an insurance company write off a car it gets a category which used to be A-D but categories changed last year I think - S&N. The Cat C category in itself should confirm the car is a write off! The only thing I can think of is because its an ex police car did the Police Force concerned did not make an insurance claim when it was damaged ? Do you have any more information about this situation?

    Very concerning that the seller isn't declaring the the car's past

    Perhaps it’s because the Police may not have normal car insurance but an Insurance bond. This is a large some of money deposited somewhere that is enough to cover insurance claims. My old company that I worked for used this method of motor insurance . I am not sure how this works in practice though especially for third party claims.

    Those two cars have completely different interiors, even the rear bumper is different too, some serious effort has gone into repairing that if it’s the same car.

    The first time I checked the description it mentioned N Repaired and will have a new MOT.

    When I checked again just now the description is completely different and doesn't mention any repair.

    The reason is HPi is missing the Info, insurance writeoff comes from HPI, salvage is pulled by vcheck from the web, they do magic in backend to match records.

    See this HPI clear

    Yep a lot of work went into it. But you got VIN in picture from salvage, this is the car 100% sure. Whoever bought it will be shocked once finds out true story
