aah, i see where this has all come from now,
this repeated scenario was mentioned to me by members a while back, now i undertand.
if it is worth anything, here is my two penneth also.
I have bought and sold cars, and including alfa's young and old, many many times over, but you know what, there is no need for a tale, the honest truth will alway win out,
some good close friends of mine think i'm a bit Arfur Daley, Kev won't even come round for breakfast anymore because it cost's him £100 and he leaves with a set of wheels or a bumper under his arm!!!! ha ha!
but you know what, i'll always be the loveable sort of Arfur, because there doesn't have to be a tale or a yarn about it all the time.
in my opinion, profit isn't a dirty word, an honest man can make an honest buck, and all parties can be happy in a buy/sell situation, there isn't the need for smoke screens and stories,
if this really is what has saddled you with a rep, thats one thing,
but if we're wrong and a we are possibly missing out on a well connected barn hunter, then thats another,
but clearly, the tactics seem to have backfired somewhat by the looks of it, which is a shame,
honesty is key, every time,
my late night sales blog, is over.......
all the best, and night night!
