    Default Help Me Sell My Car

    Right as i'm sure most people are aware and are probably bored of seeing my for sale thred popping up every other day I need some help or advice selling my car. The car has been on here since July, varoius other forums, ebay 3 times, pistonheads twice and no joy what so ever. As per my for sale thread and any one who knows the car she really is a stunner but she just won't shift . I have lowered the price to as low as I can possibly go (£5400) to make it worth me selling her. Another option I am thinking of is stripping her back to standard and putting her up for £4900 and selling my bits seperately which would give me the right sort of money. I know people will say its the wrong sort of climate etc etc but I see Siggy 2.8's and Vec GSI's being sold and bought on a weekly basis so why do I still have my car? Any help or advice would be gratefully appreciated.

    Wish you'd have put it up for sale in March, I'd have snapped it up off you, and you're not far from me either...!

    Try Autotrader...? Facebook even? I sold my 2 previous cars and several phones just by putting it up in my status and sending a BBM broadcast...freinds tell their freinds and word gets round...

    Lol. I've had so many emails saying can't beleive its not sold and I wish you'd have put this up so and so time, but it doesn't help i'm afraid. I know its in the higher end of the price range for one of these now but you wont find another with this spec and thats been this well cared for on sale at the moment I can guarantee that.

    I know that its a pet hate of most when looking for a new car but.... what about mentioning key words such as VXR and Vectra in the add's title as I for one didn't know a year ago that the Signum and vectra were very similar cars or that the 2.8T V6 could be bought in a none VXR car?

    Sell me your Irmy Grill, (could be putting some people off)

    I do feel for you as it looks a stunning motor and if you were after a pre face 2.0T I would probably have done a deal with you myself.

    Another issue could be that people want to buy a standard car for less money and then modify it as they wish, which could be different from how you have done it.

    Alternatively they dont want to modify it at all in which case yours will be a no go.

    Also in current climate big engine higher tax cars are going for silly money now - so regardless of what its advertised price is the buyers can offer silly money and if you say NO a secondhand dealer will probably say YES mate.

    I got my car well under the advertised price as I knew how long it had been on their books for!

    There are 8 2.8 signums on Autotrader and 6 of them are below £4.5K screen price. So if its up at 4k as a buyer your going to offer 3.5K first time simple as that.

    the other issue Howard is buying from a Dealer/Garage the car would have some form of warranty/return policy ..where as buying private is more of a "risk" for the Buyer who does not know you from Adam ...

    those who do know you would know your an honest and sensible guy who takes pride in his car and looks after it ... but anyone out there doesnt know you unless they have seen you on here or at a meet..

    im not saying that all dealers are angelic... as they clearly are not ..but potential punters do get rose tinted glasses buying from a dealer who tells them everthing is covered and the cars 100 % perfect when they have probably only seen the car for a cursary check and know very little about it/ or its history ..

    personally i think you need to get some High Vis Vinyl side graphics made up for about a tenner with the price and your phone number .. and then your a mobile advert everywhere you go ... its not going to damage the paintwork and saves you having to polish behind those bits

    0-Large smile ......every time it's driven
