market saturation.

Post by tom » Thu May 18, 2006 2:47 pm

There are currently 27 cars for sale on Ebay, including no less than three of the sought after red tizzydee estates starting from £10! The air conditioned car from last month is up for sale again with a buy it now of £300. It is in Birkenhead.

Don't know what happened last month I wasn't here, but I viewed this car before Christmas, I don't suppose it's improved much. PM me if you need a more detailed description.

I have posted that you`d been to see the car Ken and by my reckoning it`s been on eBay at least four times now and every time it`s been `sold`. I wonder what that means :?: :lol:

Ken has kindly got back to me regarding the red estate. THere are some isues which you might consider minor or major, dependent on your point of view. THe front wings have been resprayed and are off shade,
The aircon doesn't work (But IMHO I'd rather repair one than fit it again!),
The ABS light is on Which might cost money but might not be a major issue, and the tyres are very poor. THere is an oil leak.
The shell is sound

On the face of it, this is a car that will need some work but it isn't past praying for and in the right hands could be a very cheap late Turbodiesel estate. Go in with your eyes open, and you could get a good deal.

I see it's now gone from ebay, either the seller has been watching us, or someones done a buy it now.

Despite the cars faults, I still think it could make someone a really nice style icon :D if they're prepared to put the effort in.
They think it's all over, it is now!
