It been re-listed, it was in the same name last time but only reached £1020 the reserve wasn't met. I think it looks quite nice but I'm not sure how it would stand, badged as a 3.0 when it's only a twinnie, what would police make of that when checking insurance details, that could be fraudulent?:devious:

Do they still teach English at school? Why can't people in England spell... :alien: or use punctuation, or paragraphs - you know, blank lines, so it's not like reading verbal diarrhoea...

Well at least the people on this forum can... :)

I agree the advert is rambling etc etc. My question was in regard to the wooden steering wheel and geat knob in terms of style and whether it suits a spider. I didn't think it would be get such a response.
In response to Alex, English is of course still taught in schools in the UK, however in many areas there are many children in very mixed classes. English is a second language to the majority of those children. My friends children attend a school where there are over 65 different languages spoken. New Zealand is a million miles from that situation.

Thanks Alfapash,
Sorry if I disrupted your thread! Mind you, I thought that was a different thread - and I did comment there. I thought the wooden steering wheel and gearknob gave it a classical look, think it might hark back to the Lotus Elan, Triumph TR6, etc. not sure if that is what the 90's style of the 916 Spider is all about. Personally, I think an Alcantara steering wheel covering would be more appropriate - and an aluminium gearknob/handbrake grip.

As for this thread - which I think was entertainment value only - I agree that there are many people for whom English is a second language, but (and I could be wrong), I don't think they're the culprits when it comes to the poor standard of writing on eBay, etc. I have a feeling it's the native speakers of English - innit ;)

I have no idea what happened with there, I think I must have had 2 forum tabs open and some how I mixed up my replies. Senior moment:biglaugh:
Alex you always come across as a very nice helpful guy. You are probably right about the ad, but I know from my friends that sometimes school is not so straight forward as it was back in the day, when I went to school.

Wow the seller might be right it might be on it's way up to the £7k suggested!

The first auction it sold for £1200 then a little drop in value
The second auction it sold for £1000

Then the advert at buy it now at £1500

But looking at the new add this future classic is starting to increase in value already as looking at the add today....

Buy it now £2000! Lmao!
