Well, this car has turned into the biggest idiot magnet I have ever had the 'pleasure' of selling.
I've only really advertised it here so it's easy to see where the inquiries have come from - I've had one (I think) genuine request for more information but a complete barrage of absolutely stupid questions most of which just shouldn't have been asked.
My favourite so far is.......'what will need spending on it in the next couple of years?"
Oh and the people that haven't bothered to come and view after about 30 emails requesting information, photos, scans of service history etc - waiting in all day for you is not my idea of fun
Then, just to add to my hassles, the council bin men caught the rear corner with our wheelie bin the other day and put a 1cm dent next to the light - aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaagggggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
So, now I have a new quandry...Do I get the dent filled/painted (it won't just pop out) or sell it as is?
Getting the dent filled means I take the car into the bodyshop, then I start thinking about having the whole car painted but that doesn't actually add any value really and as I am definitely wanting to sell it do I just;
a, Bite the bullet, knock a few hundred quid off the asking price to allow any new owner to get it repaired and sell the car as is?
b, Get it repaired as cheaply as possible?
c, take my neighbour's Jeep Grand Cherokee (worth about £1800) as a straight swap and sell that on?
If anybody on here wants to make an offer that doesn't involve any more messing about, please do so.
As the car stands, it can go for £1700 with 4 months tax, 11 months MoT and the JVC bluetooth head unit that is fitted. If you want to save a couple of hundred quid but still want the car. I'll take £1500 with no tax and no head unit.
No offers below that because you probably won't like the reply and nope, I still have no intention of breaking it
I don't mind answering genuine questions but please remember, it's a car that costs less than £2k not a £200k Ferrari.
