    Default Avertizing Car's For Sale on Forum's.... A Moan and Whinge!!

    Before i start, the main gripe isnt aimed at this Forum, so dont worry!!

    As some of you know, for personal reasons my GSi is up For Sale, and i have put it on a few of the various Forum's i use, both Car and Non Car related to try and sell it!!

    What really gets me is when people pipe up "Its overpriced" or "too much" or whatever other tripe they come out with!!

    Its is currently on another forum and this very thing has happened, and i have had 3 or 4 people tell me its overpriced. Now i dont frequent the said forum that much, i have used it, but not a lot. Now, another more regular member has advertized his GSi on there, for £500 less than mine. Its a year older, 27000 miles more, has a couple of Mods, and does not mention history. But. no one has mentioned to him his car maybe overpriced. Now for £500, you get Full Dealer History, a lot less miles,unmodified, IMO a nicer, rarer colour .. So, to me, it seems pretty evenly priced

    Now, some questions have occured to me...(And if the guy/other forum members in question reads this, i am not aiming this at you, just a generalisation, but if you choose to be offended, so be it)

    Does this guy have such a status/reputation on this other forum no one dare to say anything bad to him, thru fear of losing face and his respect/friendship on the forum??
    Is it becasue i am not a "Face" on their forum??
    Do these members purposely look to try and belittle people as they think they know better??
    Are they insanely jealous that someone else has a GSi and they may not be able to afford one??
    Are they trying to get people to lower the price so they can afford it??
    Or do they just have nothing better to do with their lives??

    It makes me laugh, as well as p*ssing me off, it actually happened on here when i sold the DTi, one member told me it was overpriced and i should knock £1000 off the price. i didnt and i got exactly what i wanted for it!
    Personally, I thnk comments like that can possibly ruin any chance someone(not just me) has of selling a car, as if someone who has no idea looks at the forum and wants to buy a car, but see's people, who may not know what they're talking about saying "I fink ya asking 2 much m8", it can damage the chances of a sale thru a club where the car may be well known.

    As it happens, i know my GSi is at the top end of the price range of GSi's on the market at the moment, but i have looked at some of the £2250 sh*t thats for sale, and quite frankly, if they are worth that, then mine is easily worth what i am asking for it!!

    As i actually said in a thread i started on this subject on here, i think that all Car's For Sale threads, on all forums, should be looked and view only, to stop people with a little bit of knowledge, harming other peoples chances of a genuine sale, with tittle tattle and bullsh*t they know nothing about!

    Anyway, rant over, didnt mean to offend anyone, but if i did then i am sure you'll get over it, just go to the cars for sale section and start posting nonsense, it'll make you feel better!!

    I know exactly what your saying Ben. I had the very same when i advertised my wheels. I put up a price that i know i will negotiate down from.
    I know that the wheels and basically brand new tyre's are worth a decent price.
    But i got a lot of people saying they got some wheels for little money, Mine are way over priced etc etc. Admin intervened but still people carried on.
    I think the same forsale items should be locked and sold via PM to stop all this hassle.
    I think some people want stuff for next to nothing.

    Yeah, that's one of the things with forums unfortunately - you'll get random opinions whether you like it or not*
    *Unless you have mod powers and can delete all the unwanted comments


    However, sometimes people might be just trying to help you get the pricing right - not appreciated by the sellers by the sound of it, but what can you do.

    Also some people are just tight with their cash and want nothing but a bargin! I saw your thread Shan and tbh thought it was in poor taste that people just keep telling you and others that it wasn't worth the money. I agree, for sale threads should be via pm only and only the OP should be able to post in that thread.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Been selling hi-fi speakers recently & I feel I will have to give away some to shift em.

    What really gets me about forum selling is that some folk think a smiley face means extreme discount & free shipping

    We all want a real bargain in the world of purchasing something off forums and the t'tinet,

    but really some people take the ****! the best thing to is ignore them and sell your goods at whatever you decide..Its a different matter if they were selling something eh?? Mmmmm!

    We have a "whats it worth section" to ask what things are worth.
    But Ben knows what his car is worth and i know what my wheels are worth. Thats it.
    I don't go to asda and say your milk is only worth 50p a bottle and write it up all over the walls. I just don't buy it and walk away.

    Shan, its not even about what its worth, Its worth what you want for it and what someone wants to pay!!
    What gives ANYONE the right to tell you that you are wrong for wanting £XXXX for whatever you are selling!!!!!!!
