A MOTORS expert made more than £1,000 profit by flipping a used car on Facebook Marketplace, and it only took him a few days.

The man took to social media to show his users how he managed to make a decent profit selling a sporty Vauxhall Astra.

TikTok user @ryans_salvage picked the Astra up at an auction for £4,500 and paid £681 in fees and £250 for recovery.

The poster revealed that the tie rods were screeching, so he ordered a new pair for £40.

He also had to pay £60 for insurance and put £40 petrol in the tank, too.

Days later, he took his car for an MOT, costing him around £40 and also gave it a good wash.
