Not being rude and I feel for you but did you not spot some of the issues when you viewed/inspected/test drove the vehicle?

There probably is a case for small claims here. Bear in mind he is a trader, *not* a private seller. This gives you more rights under the Consumer Rights Act 2015 - familiarise yourself with this legislation. He can say no warranty all he wants but that doesn't remove your statutory rights.

From his original advert on eBay (print / save the advert as a PDF before it gets removed!)

After all this work was carried out it went to my paint guy and had a full respray, so now its one shade of yellow! It was only a blow over, as there was no damage or rust, but its a very good quality job. This is the most solid and straight MR2 I've ever seen.

This is misrepresentation. Big Perm have clearly stated there is no rust, and you're saying there's a lot. I'm going to guess rear arches and sills under the skirts?

He also states As you can imagine it drives absolutely faultlessly. - more misrepresentation assuming what you're saying is true about the gearbox issues.

This car needs for nothing, just ready to be enjoyed! - apparently not true either!

The AA have a summary of the Consumer Rights Act 2015 here - https://www.theaa.com/car-buying/legal-rights
Full legislation here - http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2015/15/contents/enacted

You need to document everything and build a complete timeline of events starting from the date of purchase with records of contact (all by email / text chat / recordable means I hope), and take it to small claims.

At least 'Big Perm' can't claim the buyer knew about the gearbox issues... [Think]

Man, if I wanted to buy a car and the seller wouldn't let me have a test drive of it there's no way on earth i'd buy it.

Sure, it does happen that we can see the car in a nice fuzzy day dream effect when its what we want and overlook some faults that may seem to stand out to others, but not being allowed to drive it? No way.

The seller being a trader should help you out legally I hope, but you haven't done yourself any favours by not having a test drive. I guess you are a young bloke that got a bit overexcited by the car, it happens!

Interestingly the seller still uses the car in his Facebook video - only standing still though.

Small claims. Do it sooner rather than later.

Ask him to put that in writing, he's agreeing it's rusty yet his advert states that it has no rust.

Strangely enough the chap who bought mine didn't ask for a test drive and was happy with me demonstrating. Although I was very honest about the issues in my advert.

thats quite a big difference though, you didn't refuse his request to drive it himself.

True! I see your point.

Good luck with the courts, try look into writs if you can (I saw recently on a BBC show that a dodgey trader sold an unsafe car and was forced to payout after refusing contact, the sheriff's collect the debt on your behalf)
