Interesting point. I was keen to sell the car quickly (4 cars on the drive and there's way too much shuffling in my life!) and I believe it got pretty good exposure - with thousands of views and hundreds of watchers. The problem, I believe, is more a question of timing - how many people, genuinely interested in a GTV and with the ability/inclination to pay top money want to buy this week - which is I think is at the root of what you're getting at.
Time and space is money - so there's ongoing expense with keeping the car, plus a lack of funds available for getting the remaining one nice and sorted. If I wanted to maximize the selling price then I would absolutely agree with you.
As a personal point, the Q2, the lightweight flywheel and the exhaust make it so much more fun to drive than my other one, I'd have found the temptation to drive it around irresistible - probably incurring further expense like having to get the power steering leak fixed, the flexis replaced and the rear tyres done.
Going off at an unforgivable tangent, Does anybody else find the big brake upgrade to be expensive but without much merit?
I think Clive's got a great deal on a car he already knows that should make him good money. Good luck to him and the eventual owner.
