Good luck to the man. If he can attain that price, then it justifies what I said about it being a stunning car. I could have asked for more, but I pitched her at a price which I thought was attainable

Ferking hell. Now thats a mark up and a half. I know she was good but. That must now be the most expensive standard S3 N/A ever on the market.

£11500 mark up for by their own admission a minor " and I mean minor" bit of detailing.   I am in the wrong trade. Hes got a merc sl and  a Bentley at £8k that look like bargains  by comparison

Good luck to the man. If he can attain that price, then it justifies what I said about it being a stunning car. I could have asked for more, but I pitched her at a price which I thought was attainable as she had to go. But man, it does make you wonder if you should have pitched it higher then came down. But at the same time she sold no problem, with no comebacks, so have to be happy with that. How many of us in years gone by have sold off old MK 1/2 Escorts but are now kicking ourselves, I know I have.

Deal done, move on. But just don't look at the advert to often.

 

Now anyone want to buy a rescued M100, very low mileage (41k) with only two owner's. May PX for a stunning S3 Yellow Esprit. Plus cash my way.

BRG with Grey leather interior and Yellow stripe on the seats. Perfect hood and seals. All new rear brakes including calipers, new front discs, new tires, new fuel injectors. Just about to have a full service.

 

:cry::blush::(:X:sick:

The car was sold by yourself at a sensible price that most of us would pay as we know the market prices and what to expect, dealers on the other will always put the cars up for sale at crazy increased prices, number one that when a potential purchaser knocks him down a few grand they think they have got a fantastic deal or got one over on the salesman and also classic car sales people seem to have all the time in the world to tie up money in cars and let them sit for crazy prices and often refuse to move on them until someone comes along who will pay that price. ! 

swings and round abouts, your happy with the money you got for the car and thats all that matters mate :)

Also, as a private seller you had no obligations past the point of sale, but now that it's being sold by a dealer they are carrying the risk of failures. For example if somebody buys the car and for whatever reason its engine goes wrong within a month, the dealer have to put it right (or refund), that's not saying your car has any problems, but the dealer have to build in a margin to cope with that sort of thing happening to some proportion of the cars.
