Not sure Mozella isn't being tongue in cheek? He's perhaps making the point that too much detail can scare off an unprepared and unsuspecting buyer? There again, I could be wrong and he's being serious
Actually, I am NOT being serious but at the same time you might be missing my point a little bit. As far as I'm concerned, a detailed list of extras is a good thing. When I shop on-line, the more photos and the more detail, the better. However, the extras have to make make sense like, leather upholstery , high end stereo as a factory option, cruise control, etc. The idea of buying a used car that has (or has had) a nitrous oxide bottle is insane as far as I'm concerned. Any single item on the silly list of racing options I mentioned in my previous post would disqualify a car from my consideration.
Actually, a re-map might appeal to an unprepared and unsuspecting buyer. However, I would say that a knowledgeable shopper will be put off by a re-map. I know I would be.
Just because you're an aggressive driver doesn't mean you would want to buy a used car from someone who had his car remapped for increased performance and who has taken the engine right to red-line for EVERY shift since it left the dealership, would you? Just because I plan to thrash my newly acquired car doesn't mean that I want to buy it from someone who has thrashed it before selling it to me.
Doesn't the wise buyer shopping for a normal street car look for a well maintained, totally original car with good paint, clean interior, clean engine bay, and wheels without curb damage? I know I do.
It's not unlike a young man looking for a future wife. You want a gal who knows something about the birds-and-bees, right? But that doesn't mean you've met the girl of your dreams when a pretty 19 year old says, "Sex? Oh yeah.......... I know all about it. I've had fantastic sex with thousands of men and boys and a number of women too. Wanna' do it right now? Don't worry......... this is only a cold sore".
