147 for sale on Gumtree

I have just started selling my 147 on a number of websites for maximum exposure including Gumtree Aberdeen, Perth and Edinburgh and ScotAds North and South Editions.
It is now on the classified section here with a bit more info.
I didn't realise that North and South Scotland have their own 'for sale' section but which would I enter as the car is normally located in Perth?
Will be up in Aberdeen on Sunday 6th October in the Danestone area if anyone's interested in viewing.

Harsh. It's low mileage with full service history and a fresh MOT.

Call me a pessimist but:

Low mileage - Short journeys, lots of start stop driving, could have been stood for extended periods which causes the car to deteriorate faster in my experience

Full Service history - you can buy stamped service books on ebay. not suggesting that this is what has happened here but a book full of service stamps tells me that the car is a (looked after) appliance. I would hope to see loads of receipts for it to be worth it.

Fresh MOT - The biggest con of them all. I have seen some seriously unroadworthy cars with new MOT's. My Sisters new (to her) punto had a 2inch wide scrape accross her vision line on her windscreen making it impossible to see through especially when sunny. My mums new (to her) Land rover discovery with such seriously worn front wishbone bushes you could move the arms by hand and would cause her to nearly lose control when she hit a bump. My GTV with a split subframe, non working brakes, knackered droplinks and a worn wishbone bush. All these cars bought with a full years MOT, in the last 12 months and all these points should have been fails.

Alfa GT 3.2 V6 - Quaife diff, Wizard SS manifolds, Scorpion SS downpipes, Scorption GTA catback, Bilstein b4 Dampers, braided brake lines, MTEC drilled disks, Red Stuff pads.

I know the car and owner (alfajambo) well enough to state it's far from a lemon! Full service history with either my former colleagues in Perth, or at CP in Dundee.
Just because you and your family have bought collectively 3 MOT failures, does not mean that all advertised cars with no information re belts, suspension etc etc etc are automatically lemons.

Good luck with the sale David, it'll make a nice cheap buy for someone.
