They not mine anyway, I was selling them on behalf of a certain Anthony whose son owned the 17TGD, and yes I offered them to Daren for £60, but have lost money on the car I thought these wheels and tyres were worth £75 especially as they come with all the wheel bolts. So £15 profit for me! well maybe not.
The buyer wanted to have them collected by courier who advised they should be individually wrapped in bubble wrap ready for collection, that's a lot of bubble wrap plus time going to find it and finally doing it.
Then there's the issue of whether they're the right size tyres, wheels etc etc.
Frankly I can't be arsed. I've told Anthony to come and collect them.
Sorry but deal with him yourselves.
I'm with with you on this one /\ , as when I Sold a set of five Dolomite Sprint Alloys on E-Bay last year (Which were without tyres) it took the best part of 3 to 4 hours to package them all up, protecting them with bubble-wrap and filling the hollow areas of the box internals with polystyrene blocks etc.
Then wasting a complete A.M. the following day waiting for the Courier to pick up, as their pick times are 8.30 to 17:00 hr's (They actually came @ 12:49 to pick up the parcel) so when you add all that up, it equates to approx. 8 hr's of lost time devoted to that task !
Some folks don't seem to understand all that /\ , so maybe I may too join you Ken on turning my back on BX's (and this forum) !
Hopefully it may happen sooner rather than later (when my last BX is gone) as I did want to get it back on the road with it being my first ever Green Blooded vehicle, It's a Silver 1.7 DTR TURBO hatchback on a 'G' reg. plate, but needs a top end strip/overhaul due to a cam-belt failure (I have a spare head also a superb spare turbo too) !
But I think it might just be easier (and less stressful) for me just to scrap it along with all the remaining BX spares after the personal $hite/attack on me in THIS
thread which I really couldn't care a flying f**k about compared to all $hite I've encountered in my personal life in 2011 !
