I saw that last night Barry and thought of you! Crazy thing is, I suspect he'll sell it for something around there. Hell, if it were lower mileage (like Richard's holy grail car!) I'd be tempted. You know I love a good stamped service book!

Obviously usual rules apply, tell the wife it's half the price it really is, then deduct 25%!!!

Hi James
I reckon he has no chance but I hope he does.
How do you respond to blackmail :twisted:


Only joking :grin:

PS You're right about Richards car unless another is found, which I doubt very much.

In June of this year the mileage on that car was 54,000. So, it's not going to be 51,000 now, is it?

Not a great start, 4 times the price it should be and an owner who lies, like a cheap watch.

Hi Guys
I went on Autotrader the other night and there were still a few low mileage cars left at varying prices. It really surprised me as most of the Ebay stuff is relatively high mileages.

...that seller's got higher mileage than me, and a lot more front from the looks of it... £4k! Maybe he's heard old Jags have shot up in price so thinks it extends to Pumas? :-)

I reckon this will start happening as all the old shagged ones start getting scrapped but I think at the minute there's too many serviceable ones around for much less money which could be brought up to an excellent standard with the left over £3k

All that money and if you were so stupid to part with it you would still need more cash to pay for the two new number plates for its MOT
Have to admire the guy for trying I guess

I think if you like silver, then at that mileage and alleged condition that is a fair price. Cambelt done in 2013 and MOT history reads OK, but guy has had slight money trouble in the last year or so, otherwise they wouldn't have let those tyres get in that state before changing. The advisory bad oil leak was probably fixed by the new cambelt gasket, which just leave a possible on the struts. Back box can be had for a song.

Guy's attitude seems OK, i.e. no chippy 'no timewasters!' stuff, but made a mistake by saying the price had been dropped twice. That tells me it's not shifting, so I'd go in at £950 and pick that up for £1,100. - Cash? - Today? - 'Hold out your hand, you just bought....' @ M. Brewer.

That's a good motor waiting for someone, I reckon.

Now sold, but I'd bet that one was being sold by Adam who used to frequent this forum. Says Upchurch in the ad but I recognise the One Stop Shop in Rainham in the photos where he lives.

Yeah, it was Adams. He came across it a couple of months ago and seemed like a good one...
