The Pheonx bird.
A mythical creature, that gets burnt in the flames, to ashes,
And rises up, yet once again, to begin a new life.

Very common practice, the good old Pheonix scheme,,,,,

Has anybody here been invited to the launch party for PHIL LEE'S JAPANESE AUTO CENTRE PTY LTD yet?

Willing to share petrol costs.

 

I am also looking for some Watanabe centre caps to fit some recently imported Konig Rewinds.  >:D

I think he's already done it, now called Edward Lee's Imports not Edward Lee's Japanese Auto Center.

Same location
Same phone number
Same staff
Same stock
Same business practices

This crap happens all to often.

From the Edward Lees Imports webiste

"Established in 1966" not even pretending to be a different crew.

Is that because Edward Lee of Edward Lee's Japanese Auto Centre is a dodgy, un-ethical & unprofessional used car salesman involved in winding odometers back & re-birthing used Japanese vehicles?

Go easy on the keyword stuffing fellas or we might get "Google Slapped".

 

Meta tags are a wonderful thing aren't they?

What we need is a global record of car milages.

All factory services and rego checks get loaded into a central DB. Anyone can then check the apparent (displayed) milage against the DB and any rollbacks get caught out.

We have such a DB in Australia and it does catch people out.

In this modern world it should be easy to do this kind thing, but it aint.
