Thanks guys, it seems like no matter how many times you tell people how good a condition it is in they still just presume you are lying! Sometimes I wonder if anyone tells the truth about things on Ebay as buyers seem to take everything you say with a pinch of salt! That said its on now and we will see what happens. I have sold stuff on Ebay for years, you would think that 276 100% positive feedback would count for something but apparently not when it comes to cars LOL! Cheers for the good wishes!

lol i am the same, the guy who sold me my car was saying its immaculate nothing wrong with it except a few stone chips, ( lol i ve said this a number of times ) but he was full of IT, people lie to get rid of their cars, Happened with 2 of my cars OOH perfect condition never had any trouble. Within first few months bout 200 to 300 pounds spent on repairs. Thats why I'm going garage next time unless its a newish car. ( with warranty ) lol i ve always wanted to go back to who I bought it off & show him what it looks like now, what it ( his old car) can look like with a bit of attention spent on it. I still rmb what he said , it is good condition..... why what are you after ??? A show car ??? I was gob smacked, I want a bloody car that looks like its suppose to.

Sounds like you had a bad time, I'd take it back and hit him with it :) Thats why I was wary of selling on Ebay. I think sometimes it is perceived as a no come back type of sale, and thats why people shift their dodgy cars on there. I think my 276 100% positive feedback more than rules out that I am one of them however! anyone who sells on Ebay will tell you it takes a lot of trouble and honesty to reach that level of feedback without every getting a single bad or neutral comment!
As I said if it doesn't reach the money I want I will just have to learn to live with the increased insurance and lower MPG than a 1.5 as I sure as hell aint gonna sell it for dodgy car cash!
