On the up

Prices that is! at least they are if this is anything to go by. It seems an awful lot of money for a car in this condition and without tax :?

If this car doesn't reach £600 blah blah blah. I hate people who try and use sort of threats to sell cars and being honest I'll laugh if it doesn't get what he wants for it.


*Edit: check out bidder 6: he's the only one who's bidded today and seems hell bent on running the price up AND he has a 100% bid record with this seller. I wouldn't piss on this car if it were on fire.

Well I was thinking something on those lines, but would never say so :lol:

Also looking back at some of the recent ebay cars that have been mentioned on here, it's surprising how many have sold for good money and no feedback left either way :?

Maybe I should get out more :lol:

You don't need to get out more Ken, you just need to remain shapr and focused and keep 'em peeled for eBay idiots.
I'm currently on the case of a couple of scammers and quite enjoying it.

Upto £602, a very good price for that type of car. However, perhaps with fuel going well past £1 a litre, & veg oil & biodiesel being a damn site cheaper, perhaps all old diesel's that dont need any engine mods will suddenly start looking rather attractive propositions??

Start stocking up on BX diesels with bosch pumps :D

Attractive indeed Mulley but this one is not really worth that (compared to other BXs) and looks highly suspicious regarding the bidding. My guess is his schill bidding friend will end up winning it.

Could well be Billy, seems a shame that E-bay changed the way bids are viewed in order to try & protect people, but i think its done the complete opposite :x

That's exactly what it's done Mulley and what happened to their promise to stop private listings? Too scared to do anything about it in case it eats at their profits. No wonder they've lost loads of customers recently but instead of addressing the REAL problem (scammers, non-payers etc) they just decide they should make the business of listing things much harder and ignore the real problems.
I reported a dodgy listing and over 28 hours later it was still there.

Laughable. Highest bidder got this feedback the day after the listing had ended... "NO SERIOUS BUYER. DON'T DEAL WITH HIM ! MAKES FUN ONLY AND SILLY EXCUSES LATER".

Oh, and while we're at it, spot the deliberate mistake here...
