Afternoon all from sunny South Wales,
Just to point out, this is not a sales page, I'm just trying to see if anyone else here has had the same problem in selling one of their Alfas in the past
I've been a member on here for quite some time, two beautiful Alfas that I've had tons of enjoyment (and the odd hair pulling moment).
The time has come to get a company car (due to milage, maintenance and fuel costs
) As no current alfas in production currently fit the bill I'm opting to the dark side, German manufacturers.
So my journey of selling another alfa began about 10 weeks ago, my last one (a pretty great 159 2.4) sold in less than 48 hours so it's a bit frustrating to see the Brera sat outside the house for so long. I've had tyre kickers, test drivers and general idiots seem interested, but never actually wanting the car in the end.
As I'm taking delivery of a company car very soon I would rather that it sell sooner rather than later. The car is in good nick, limited service history, a small crack in the panoramic window but all in all is a good car. I've had a ton of work done to it (timing chain, new battery, new spark plugs, coil set as well as other smaller jobs just to mention a few) but no one wants to give it a home.
I'm at whits end with it now and I'm actually considering going through one of those awful car buying services unless it sells soon. I've been offered £2,850 for it through one particular company, and I'm just willing to cut my losses now.
The car has been on Gumtree and Autotrader for weeks now to no avail and I'm fed up of spending money on ads.
Has anyone had a similar problem in the past? If so, how did you sort it out?
