I've seen some rubbish for sale on eBay over the years, but this has to be in the top 10 of all time.

I mean at least with those pellets you put in your tank they do try to explain how they work even if it's all bollocks. But this, there's no explanation at all. But why would there be, what could they possibly say to explain how plugging a light in to your cigarette lighter can cut your fuel consumption by 20%!

But they've sold 54 and lots of other people are selling them so I'm sure* it's legit*

A mere four day raid.

Kind of highlights the benefits of a UK - Norway ferry crossing.

I feel your pain , we had planned for my pals 50th in 2009 to go to the artic circle on the bikes, however ferry stopped from Newcastle in 2008.It was getting ridiculous looking at other options as would spend half our holiday just getting to and from Norway.

If anyone can point me to people who've bought this, I've got some "fuel catalyst pellets" and a bridge to sell them... 

Fuel pellets work.....even Mike Brewer says so in his advert in the car mags!!!!

I don't think this car is worth this much, as I reckon it could need work doing to it due to it having not sold already. It has been up for half a year now and I reckon it might be worth taking a punt. Trouble is, I reckon it's a sub 5k car until I see the history and wondering if it is too big of an ask. They are a dealer and probably bored with it sitting around, so might dare with a low ball. If of course it isn't a total nightmare

Any opinions on these cars? I know the gearboxes are quite weak, but engines are bulletproof

Seller looks legit, imagine having to write this on the returns label

Fab. I had a fairly good go at trying to buy a beige 1.3 from Der Nederlands a few years ago - but couldn’t get the seller to take me seriously.

I do struggle with the 3dr looks in low spec flavour; it looks out of proportion. There’s absolutely no doubt that this will get pimped, the eventual sale price will necessitate improvement to get an RoI which is what all the Ford Scene is about.

That'll be this one, then? Only beige Custom I know of. Some sellers will just assume that all messages in English (or an obvious Google Translated text) are probably from scammers, unfortunately.

That’s the one. I had one of the Mum’s from school translate into perfect Dutch for me (she is a Dutch National) explaining how I was ready to book a ferry and pay a large deposit - still nothing. Just one of those things I guess!

Maybe the Dutch have their equivalent of the "cash tonight m9" knuckle-draggers as well.

A pair of CF projects which need to be gone by the end of the week:

How is he allowed to list them as "Free" when the text of the listing clearly says he wants a grand for them?  It's probably not a bad deal, but honestly, how many people actively and specifically want a CF?  I can think of one.  And that bloke has neither money nor facilities.

'Tis the way Farcebook Marketplace works* - the algorithms and coding are truly shite. It can't cope with mileage, for example, so renders it as kilometres. 

Not even possible to put up a "wanted" advert properly, as their coding demands you put a fixed price even on that.
