Extremely grumpy yday as missed out on a Rover Streetshite for £200. Dealer advertised it as a PX spesh on eBay, spotted it at work, couldn't ring because at work, so dropped a message to say I'm gonna come over Saturday morning (train ride away). Got up yday, checked to see if listing live - gone. Oh well, fair enough, someone else got lucky, good for them....
What really pissed me off, however, was seeing exactly the same car pop up on Gumtree yesterday evening for £600..... (although cunning photos were presented with the reg numbers slightly out of shot, and obviously taken at the dealer's home address, mileage now including the exact number of miles from the dealership to this person's home address)
Perhaps they realised the error of their ways, but a 300% markup is a bit steep....
Thing is, it's still a good price for a 11 month MoT, 67K mileage car, so do I just suck it up, do we think ?
