198km is 123k miles so maybe just a miss type when he said 123kms.

oldest trick in the book. Buy high mileage KM, clock it to equivalent miles and pass off as KMs. I'd ask for a full refund if I was you. Too many newby importers are doing this. CARVX is the way forward before paying for any fresh import.

Always always pay for things on credit card. Instantly pay it off with the bank transfer. This way you have the protection from the credit card.. with bank transfer youíre as good as handling cash over.

what has the garage said? Have you asked for a refund
