    Private selling a car, something everyone gets... timewasters..

    Lost count now amount of dodgy calls.. off people that sound like 'gangsta's'.. people that are unable to grasp the English language and speak like those guys from rap videos on music channel!!

    Like.. 'Yo, iz dat a AMG rep, yo' .... erm.. No, its a C280 with AMG styling..

    'iz it got 2 litre man?'.. erm.. No its a 2.8, have you read the advert?!

    'wot iz da surance man?' .... group 16 I think..

    'got da full history?' ... No, again, have you read the advert?!

    Then hangs up.. Think I'll put Phonesafe on my Pistonheads advert..

    Had 2 just yesterday, one at 9:30pm, and again at 10:20!.. turned phone off after that..

    Ha.. I find it funny when I think about it.. I wouldnt sell my car to someone like that if they turned up to view it. I'd rather keep it! :devil:

    Always reminds me of being out in my buddies e36 m3.. and some asian kid in a clio trying to race us.. and then stopping in the middle of the town centre to come over to ask whats under 'da hood'.. :D

    I really dont get the culture..

    We get some people come in wanting to buy keys for their 'brothers' car.

    Us: "ok sir we need the original v5, some photographic ID and to see the car"
    Cust: "The car is in Africa, and i dont have the log book. I do have the chassis no though"
    US: "Yeah, bye then"


    Or it goes.
    Cust: "alright boss i need a key for this car i dus bought innit"
    US: "ok i need to see the V5 and photo ID and to see the car"
    CUST: "ye mate no probs"
    US: "sorry sir the V5 isnt in your name and so i cant sell you a key, I cant sell you a key for a car that is registered to somebody else. It's like selling you a key to somebodyelse's car"
    CUST: "ye but im a trader though innit"
    US: "ye bye"

    Both customers leave with our key procedure booklet

    Last time I sold a car privately the quality of potential buyers was astonishing. Should have known: it was a Vectra 2.5 SRi so prime material to turn into a chavtastic GSI clone. Best one was a rodent like creature wearing gear that made him look like a member of the Staines Massive who got kitted out at Oxfam.

    Went like this:

    "Oi! Daz iz an s-tate innit!"

    "Indeed, O profoundly challenged one. That is what is says in the ad: E.S.T.A.T. E.

    "Bu Izs do'ne wann-a s-tate!"

    "Well, off you go then my good fellow>"

    "I fink you orta gimme £10 for de petrol I wasted getting 'ere M8!!"

    History does not record my response. Which is just as well really.

    I'd have used a sledgehammer to make sure he couldn't create any clones of himself :D

    Being pedantic, the E36 M3 had 2 engines. Firstly a 3.0 litre (IIRC), then a 3.2 "evolution" 321 bhp.

    Either should well outclass any Clio (except the V6)

    :)

    Bolt cutters are more effective, and far more fun to use......

    Didnt really tell the story in full...

    M3 Evo.. blows away the Clio 1.5 DCi on the dual carrageway.. going through near-by town, Clio overtakes line of traffic on wrong side of the road, including us.. and then stops in front of traffic lights, gets out of his car, leaves door open.. holding up about 10 cars, to come and ask whats under 'da hood'...

    I know the feeling...I have even had offensive pm's on this board when the person enquiring did not like what I had to say....and that was after I posted a plea for no casual enquiries...:eek:

    Gets boring after a while racing cars off the mark - very rarely get it now in any of the cars and most don't even pull up neck to neck at a stand still at traffic lights and keep their distance slightly back for some reason...:confused:
