ebay 'BARGAINS'

Recommended Posts

What a dipstick. That is overpriced by at least a factor of 10, in the current climate. Handbrake cables are easy enough but the clutch wouldn't be much fun. That'd even be too much for a tidy TD estate needing the same amount of work.

190,000, no MOT, needs a clutch and rear brakes & headlight and he wants £300 for it.http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/1994-PEUGEOT-405- ... 286.c0.m14

I don't think that's too bad really. It's a nice enough car, it appears to have been well looked after and it's got a DAB stereo in it, which would fetch almost £100 on its own. I haven't done a 405 clutch but I've done a 305 XUD one and it was quite easy, certainly much easier than the Escort TD one. A weekend's work would give you a tidy little car that could last several years with no big problems.

Regards the Lancia from Walkers.........I did the deal to sell them my Daughter's Yellow 02 plate Punto Sporting a couple of years ago. They offered book plus 300 quid over the phone, without a viewing involved. Took it up, had the cash in an envelope, he then paid 100 quid more than the original offer when he saw the condition. Top dealer, wouldn't have any qualms handing over cash like that. He had about 10 Deltas on the front, and 3 or 4 in the showroom. Parts and parts cars galore, and a very busy workshop. Seems he had quite a rig for Rally Support in the 80s/90s. Might just pop up to see what he's got kicking around.................

1984 Toyota Corolla 1.3GL

 

£1595 from a dealer. Clean car, but a FWD non-sports Corolla with 51K on the clock, I can't imagine the phone ringing off the hook to be honest.

Agreed, DEFINITELY NOT AE86!

 

And he needs to get The Doctor down to work a bit of his valeting magic on it too to get anywhere near a grand.

LOZZLE, three grand, who comes up with this stuff? 'Yeah i've looked on eBay and autotrader for a bit of research, what i'll do is make mine 10 times the cost of the next most expensive one and we'll take it from there, that way I've got about £2500 margin for haggling'

Have a 'CAT D' Volvo V40:

S-reg full ticket, what would you give for this?

Not for this chap. To you just £15,995

 

The mind boggles.

Bugger me sideways - I have just hammered out a deal that sees the wife sat in a 57 plate Zafira diseasel for £6100. And I still think Im being ripped off at that.

:shock: I can't imagine how on earth even the must drug addled Volvo lover could see that being a realistic asking price. Surely theres at least one extra number in there. And even if there is an extra 9 in there its still too much by half. GR8 ebay listing skills in evidence as well.
