first problem,the car still got debt to the credit company..not much..around rm3K (that make the total of rm7K)..
second,we need to find out first if the credit company is still exist,becoz if not,the name in the pink slip cant be change and the car status will still be "Perdagangan" instead of "Persendirian"..
third,we need to cancel the "taxi permit" on the car by ourself..it turn out this "Abg Kamal" is not the owner as stated in the pink slip..he is only a driver for the car..to make things worst he said the owner is a Gangster,only he can deal with him..
why u cant tell me this on the phone!!...i travel from Kajang to kuantan,spend almost RM3++ on fuel,toll,and food just to hear this crap!!...
i try to think positive at the moment..then we went back to the taxi stand,to inspect the car..after that took a copy of the pink slip..and said "we'll try to find the credit company first.if anything we'll let u know"
see abg kamal hands showing the engine
lx80 "zenki"(old model) chaser
Next stop to Kemaman,Terengganu to continue our search..stop to have lunch first and off to kemaman taxi stand...we ask the uncle taxi there if they got X80..after asking his fellow taxi-an and made a few phone call to kuala terengganu taxi stand...there was no luck...but still,the uncle offer me a crown,cedric and bluebird instead hahaha...
me and koopang at kemaman..patiently awaits
dispointed again,we went back to kuantan,while otw we make a quick stop cherating,to buy "keropok lekor"...then go to Teluk Chempedak,for sight seeing of the beach and dinner...and finally continue the journey back home...
2 days after that i decided to check out the credit company which located in KL,i was really having a hard time looking for that place + it was a pain in the arse haha...been searching for almost a whole day till i finally found it...turns out the company bankrup 3years ago...another dead end...
a week after the crazy journey,i got a call from "abg kamal"asking me if im still interested on buying the car coz if not there are someone else willing to buy the car,and i said its okay if the car got another buyer...i already lost interest on the car considering the problem with the documentation...and i dont care if its frameless or not....i got way too much issue to deal with hahaha....so that is one of my story and exprience on my road to find a X8...... if u said im not looking hard enough ur dead wrong hahahha
