    Buying an SL60 and/or R129 Pano Roof - Strange sellers or strange buyer (me!!!)

    So I enquired about an SL60 on Ebay. This one: Rare Mercedes-Benz SL60 1995 | eBay I asked politely and nicely for some answers to a couple of questions. Received a reply back with some answered and some not. I tried again with a request for a few further pictures to be e-mailed and also...

    Big issue sellers

    I'd be interested to know how often people walk past Big Issue sellers, and what their reaction is. I walk past three or four a day, usually twice. I'm not a reader, as I've said elsewhere, so have no desire to buy the magazine, and I do support my own charities of choice. Should I put some...

    Why can't sellers tell the truth?

    I won this and went to collect it today: eBay - The UK's Online Marketplace Messy ad, but I had sent seven (yes seven) emails asking clarification. All MOT's? Yes = actually no, only two present Full Mercedes history? Yes = er, no, duplicate book, first two years blank, 3 Mercedes stamps then 3...

    Car sellers: What's in a name?

    You see a car, read the ad, like what you see and then you see the name of the seller at the bottom and think errr not for me. i.e. Big Tam Is it just me or is anyone else put off by some names?

    Alloy Wheel Sellers (rant)

    Just my little rant before I goto sleep... Rant 1: Why is it that I cannot find anyone with a decent stock of alloy wheels who will tell me exactly how much each rim weighs? Rant 2: Why is it that ever seller that has directional alloys (like the aeroblade, swirly ones, turbine ones, etc)...

    Where are all the private sellers?

    There's nearly 362,000 cars on Autotrader right now. Less than 7% are private sellers. (and even some of those might be traders!) The newer the car, the % is even lower. 98% of mercs from 2008 onwards are being advertised by dealers. Where are all the private sellers and why do I care?

    Timewasting sellers

    Looking at another R129 and just have to have a whinge about timewasting sellers. "Car is perfect condition, everything working." Get there and rear windows are ripped and aircon not blowing cold - receive the "needs a regas" rubbish and "but it is coming into winter so does not matter"...

    Caution All Car Sellers

    Like many others I have advertised my vehicle here, a site for dedicated MB owners. OK. As such I have received enquires for the same. However one such enquirer asked unusual questions, points that were clearly in the advert, which sent alarm bells ringing. In my case the originator lead me to...

    Car sellers who owned the car a few months

    I’m looking to expand the fleet with a Land Rover Discovery. I’ve owned a Defender for 9 years so am aware of the pitfalls of owning Solihull’s finest. The aim is to buy the best vehicle that isn’t hit by retrospective tax (eg. Pre Mar 01). I’ve come across two cars being sold privately...

    I hate when sellers don't know what they're selling

    Take this guy here: He's advertised it as a 300TE, implying that it has the 12v M103 engine, when it's blatantly the later 24v M104. If I was selling a car I was unfamiliar with, I would at least...

    Joker sellers

    I'm on the hunt for a 190 and have viewed about 6 cars now at various prices. So far every seller has been a complete joker, including one compulsive liar who got his fake identities as a gynaecologist and airline pilot mixed up, but today I had the Prince Joker. This guy has a '93 black 2.6...
