Not been on the forum in a while as I put my '09 S3 up for sale back in August last year, long and short of it after being messed around on Auto Trader, I took it to a private car dealer in Kent who specialises in German sport cars, he was a friend of a friend, so offered to sell the car for me and deduct commission before giving me the rest of the money.
After he sold the car in October, he sent me an invoice for the commission which I did not pay because I had not received the full amount of cash from him. I had a bank transfer of £10,000 but the rest I did not get until the 2nd of January this year after, despite chasing and threatening legal action. Now that he has had payment he wants his commission, which I had understood he had already taken. Whilst I am happy to pay it, I want to know how much he sold the car for, which he is refusing to show me the original documents of.
He is now taking me to small claims court to try and retrieve this money, despite me saying that I will pay if he can prove how much he sold the car for. I really feel as if there is something dodgy going on here and want to know exactly how much the car sold for, if it was what he said it was for then he can have the commission, if not then we will have to discuss it further.
Does anyone know how I can either track down the new owner of the car? or how much it sold for? I want to do things above board, of course. I am happy to post the number plate of the car on here, as well as who the dealer was, but at the same time I don't want to upset anyone. I even have pictures from when it was owned by myself and other documentation that I was the owner.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
