I'd have been well interested in that but I'll be away for the next year or so.

Its due a cam belt change now I'm afraid (I'm supprised AFH didn't mention this to you) and I personally (whatever the reason) wouldn't buy a car without a log book!

and it's hardly a bargain without a cambelt service, no logbook, 94k on the clock, airbag warning, no sidelights and so on...

With the aim of being helpful I would say spend an hour or so sorting out the sidelights and getting the airbag light reset. This may make all the difference in your sale, for very little time/money overall.

I would never buy a fussy car (i.e any Alfa!) from an owner who couldn't be bothered to do these simple tasks. First impressions count! I would leave the cambelt details out rather then give a false change interval at that price too...

In my experience with eBay you would get a better price if you started the auction from a lower starting point, rather then the minimum you would take for the car. For instance, for just 1800 you can but a much newer/lower miles 147 then yours, but auction fever does silly things to people buying shiny red sports cars in the summertime, I would rely on that

Good luck!
