The comments about dead bodies is a bit of fun also known as...a joke. The rest was speculation about if it had been in an accident/stolen etc so that speculation was correct. Why is non of this advertised? Would have made life a whole lot easier and then this thread would never had exisited (well it may have but that is another story
). The specualtion only existed as the ad said nothing about why it was so cheap and the sellers were pretty much fobbing people off and saying it was sold when it clearly wasn't etc. At the end of a day if someone is trying to sell a 2005 premium sports car for £3500 then it is going to be noted and questioned on here or other forums. It's human nature to question
. Nobody in their right mind is going to want to buy a car even if as cheap as £3500 if it all doesn't add up and it is going to come back and bite them pretty hard on the ****
Not really very funny jokes are they, good job I dont come here for the humour ! ?
I never said there was anything wrong with questioning why it was cheap, but no one was exactly "questioning"-they were stating negative speculation as though it was fact-of course there was a reason WHY it was cheap, it was just a question of finding out why.
Its been in an accident and a closer inspection should reveal what bits are repaired. They could have advertised that it was cat c but as I said it was kinda obvious that it was cat c, stolen recovered, repossessed or flood damaged.
You can hardly blame the dealer for this thread and the negative speculation-similar things were said bout the one on ebay and the seller HAD mentioned it was repossessed.
I ve seen many threads like this before and its always negative comments, when really, as I keep saying, its a bargain for someone so comments should be positive-I ve had 2 written off and repaired cars before with no probs.
I wouldnt mind betting that the reason the dealer was cagey was BECAUSE of this thread- the posts referring to earlier threads with someone posting about this dealer were made by someone who joined in Dec 09, posted twice and hasnt been seen since, its quite possible those posts were made by someone at that garage trying to offset the negativity of this post.
Fact is if someone on here was interested in buying the car then they should have hpi ed it, (saving OperationAlfa the cost) and found out why it was cheap, instead have making negative, speculative, remarks.
We didnt need "warning" , on the contrary the car needed pointing out cos its a bargain and someone could get an 8 grand car for 3 and a half.
