That's probably a decent car, in fairness. People do seem to use eBay to bitch and moan though, and trying to read that all in CAPS almost gave me a headache.

It is probably worth £1250-£1500 too, but I know what you mean with the listing!

Missed the LHM leak on the n/s/f return then.

Condition looks average.

Seller's a knob by the sound of it. Normally when several people "timewaste" the seller isn't giving the full story.

"best BX his tester has ever seen"... Right! The only BX's my tester has seen in the past 5 years are mine... What about yours?..

Actually I agree with the seller. eBay is full of bloody morons who click the buy button just for the hell of it. Yes the capital letters are a bit of a struggle to read. But I have been messed about so many times by eBay idiots and I go to great lengths to describe my items properly.

That's as maybe but Insulting your prospective purchasers is not going to get you a sale.

Shpock is one of those companies created purely in the hope it'll get later bought out by a bigger retailer (like eBay or Amazon). It's just full of adverts for junk and makeup parties / fake rolex's etc.
