Not sure,

Yeah, Like that "boxster"!!

On the other car, the owner posted what he states the car is worth, 59,000 pounds, I do not know if he will be forced to sell, but there was no reserve posted soooooooooo???????

Don't think so. That's what they're going for here (July-Aug).

I cant give you a sure-fire formula for success, but I can give
you a formula for failure: try to please everybody all the time.

That's what he claims the car cost new (not what he says it's worth now).

I can't remember seeing one, with those few miles certainly, less than about 29k - but maybe some of the UK watchers can advise me.

I have just seen this. The car was also advertised on autotrader and I put a deposit down last Wednesday... It's a really lovely spec with extended leather, the only thing it didn't have that I wanted is ambient lighting. The car is having an MOT and I pick it up in a couple of weeks time. I cannot wait, I am so excited!!!

So what about the 'winning bid' on Ebay?

So I guess my original premise was right - 24k would have been a steal.

Perhaps they were shill bids toward the end of the auction - no sign of anyone complaining that the item was withdrawn - and nothing in the ad about 'advertised elsewhere'.

@bensslk

Well congratulations - I'm sure you're going to be over the moon!

In which part of London are you? I'd also like to eyeball the new toy at some point.

I'm LB Bexley - maybe in a week or two we could organise a mini-meet at Surrey Hills or somewhere like that and drag in a few more of us southerners.

Bensslk: that ebay listing is not valid. "This listing (**********) has been removed, or this item is not available."
