the new write off cat system means its no longer recorded on logbook and does not require a vosa vic check . that's why car thefts are out of control . TfL have no objection .

The lowest catagory of total loss never required a VIC check.

Not sure about the new system, I don't know why they changed it as the old system worked fine

What car?

Remember he has been paid out for the car so any sale he gets is ££

Rule of thumb:
Cat N should be max 70% of market value like for like car.
16500- 11550 max you should pay.


I had a bmw 330D car D before
65k on clock when I sold it had all the paperwork’s dealer history etc but selling a cat car is difficult.

Also check, where was the car hit
Front or back?
Reg of car (last 3 years mileage change)
Owners etc

I went to Car giant with a mate and saw a
65 plate Audi..
Black edition..
2 owners..
14k Miles..
No service history..
1 mot 27/08/2018 9,878

Now just over 3 years of being on the road..
2 owners and only 14k covered..

Both owners from Bradford.

Walked out of the showroom.

£4.5k cheaper than a non write off?

I assume its already been fixed to a standard that TFL will accept?

You have ro watch for ex PCP cars when buying.

They are everywhere, including Main Dealers, and they are driven by people with no intention of long term ownership who often see the monthly PCP payment as their only motoring cost.

Standard of finish is very good and engineer report to say to a good standard but will be getting my own AA report done.

It's a 2017 Ioniq SE Premium. 12K for next 5 years will do me.

I was looking at 2017 E220D but prices don't justify that.
