How not to buy a car:

Q: Alright mate, a couple of enquires about the BMW, you say its in good nick but it looks a bit shabby in the pictures, will you accept £350 for it for scrap? It is old. Does the full closure really work properly as there can be problems with it? I've got a buyer for the full closure system? Are the tyres any good mate as i have a buyer for those? Infact if i could come and have those bits off the car you can keep the rest ill give you good price mate. 31-Jan-09

A: Do you really think I will accept £350 for the car, even though bidding is up to £480. What do you think!!!!! It is not shabby, everything works fine including the full closure. Have had 2 people come and look at it and both are very interested. Thanks for your interest (not).

I'd have told him to come round with the cash. And would then go out for the day. Possibly the weekend.

I do like how the BMW seller says the LPG system is suitable for most 6,7, or 8 cylinder cars.I've had 6 & 8 cylinder cars,so I'll be looking for one with a 7 cylinder engine next :lol:

Question: From the lengthy XM advert, I notice these two phrases in the same auction

About ourselves, we are a car sales based in Kent

She is also sold without warranty and none is given or implied

Is this legal? I thought adverts had to carry the word 'trade' when they were placed by a trader, and this automatically covered you with sale of goods and various other bits of legislation - buying from a private seller does not give you these luxuries. Autotrader reminds you that it's an offence for a trader not to disclose their trade.Is eBay once again above the law?

Are they not scene-taxed to the hilt by TRAMPDRIFT mongs?Anyway, what became of your 504 pickup Mr_B, that was class in a glass (or at the very least class in a rusty old bucket)

Actually, if you could live with the economy this would be a good example I reckon. Certainly seems to have been well looked-after.

 

Not often there's a choice of estates...

This one is a 2.2, manual too, and again seems to have most of the right bits done. I'd want to know about the cam belt though. If I had any spare cash I'd be tempted.

True, but not as many 'shite points'. I'd love to own that Zeph and kit it out with some fancy "ICE", then drive about at 10mph with all the windows down and Jimi turned up to 11....
