On a serious note mate, set a reserve you want to achieve,

or get a mate to bid at least what you want on the car.

:lol:

I say this as friendly advice. Your feedback is only 14, you have sold

only 4 items on Ebay (none are recent enough to be viewable), and on

inspection your buying history is a Mariah Carey CD and a Laura Ashley

coat. This will attract both low bids and of course utter cretins.

People will shy away from such low history, or history based on very cheap &

no value items. This is the kind of listing i look for, and the type i have made

most of my tunaround on Ebay (eg

Hi Paul,

This is my wifes Ebay account,I have another with a 700 rating.The trouble is I just get idiots on that too so it doesn't really matter which you use nowadays.

I have two serious buyers interested ,one in Holland and one here who is looking at it tomorrow night. I'm not going to go bankrupt if I dont sell so we will see. I will pull the add with 12 hours to go if it isn't up to 12k so please don't worry.

And I'm fully aware that Gillypops 2 is a waste of time (one of the bidders),as I have him blocked on my other account,but I can't be bothered here.

The chargecooler pump is done and the car is running lovely.

My wife says she won't take it personally that you think Maria Carey is crap and that only tarts wear Laura Ashley coats.....that is what you said isn't it :thumbup:

Hey!!! :)

I never 'crap', I might have said 'cheap' and of 'no value', and, err,

i might have (reading it again) suggested it might attract 'cretins'...

But i did not say crap. I think Maria Carey is a very talented lady and

in absolutely in no way totally and utterly mental. And i think that Laura

Ashley was really good in that 'men behaving badly' on the telly and stuff

like that, although i think it sad she is so hard up that she is selling her

clothes off now.

I only make jokes about things i know everything about, otherwise it's

too easy to get your facts all wrong and look daft.

:D

Cool you are sorted with the sale price, just looking out for ya.

Too funny - ohh the fun you can have with boxster owners :thumbup:

On a serious note you have to be patient with selling a car so rare as this.

I hate the morons as well, but stick with it - ebay isn't probably the best place to sell a car if you want to avoid the clowns.

Is it in auto-trader as well ?

Hi Richard,

I was going to put a reply on here but I've just scrubbed it and sent you a pm instead.

Generally though, Esprit sales are very quiet at the moment. I hope you get what you want for it.

I think you are better putting a classified ad because if you do an auction starting at

Hi Dave,

I have replied to your p.m :thumbup:

I have been honest about the car previously ,but it is a well sorted car now. Apparently there are only 4 of these left in the country,which if true is good.

Anyway I'd agree things are slow. The chap coming tonight and the reason I rushed to get the chargecooler pump done has pulled out so I am seriously thinking of letting it run on Ebay. Its up to

Hi Paul,

Your generosity impresses me.Throw in a Beegees CD and a Laura Ashley lampshade, and a case of Pino grigio and you have a deal. :thumbup:

Looks like its either going to Holland or a dealers forecourt.

Happy days.

I agree Ebay isn't a good place buy its fun and easy.Piston heads was a waste of time for my Range Rover.

Still worth a free try on PH. (posibly a better class of timewaster, I dont know)

I've been lucky I guess - sold two cars this year at the full asking, both on PH and both went within 24 hours (one being the Esprit)

Just my 2p. Good luck with the sale either way Richard.

The entire car market is dead at the moment. There was a feature on the radio the other day that certain car dealers have gone fro 40 sales to 11 sales over a period. I've been trying to sell my C70 T5 to make way for an Esprit for 8 weeks now. The car is VGC, well over

Hi Sean,

You are right .The Esprit is a classic ,but anything but the older cars are still depreciating.

The chap who bought mine was honest and had looked at 5 .All of them up in the

Ok,

I'll re phrase that. It just feels that compared to running a series of Esprits the boat just seems so cheap.......... :)

Maybe....
