Suspicious car - possibly abandoned - Mercedes C Class

Reported via desktop in the Abandoned and untaxed vehicles category anonymously at 11:56, Friday 18 June 2021

Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later

There is a red Mercedes C Class MJ13 WMG parked on the road outside 20 Palmar Crescent (DA7 4LG) which has been there about 5-6 weeks and has not moved. What is unusual is that the car is immaculate, outside and inside - not a sign of anything personal in the car. That on its own is fine (some people are very clean) but looking inside, there are several signs that make it suspicious: Both of the headrests are split open almost like they have had something stored inside and have been prised apart. Also in the back footwell there are parts of panels (which I can only assume are from the boot lining). For someone who keeps the car so immaculately presented, it just feels inconsistent that both headrests are broken apart at the same time and panel parts have been tossed into the back, I just feel that the owner would have been tidier and have put the parts in the boot. Car is taxed and has valid MOT - checked.

  • This vehicle is being sold from a private seller. He parks his cars all along Palmar Crescent and leaves them there until he sells them. What is needed in this road is a parking restriction between 10/12 that would solve this problem

    The red Mercedes seller is giving 2 fingers to not only this street but to the council I pay my council tax so get it sorted.
