    Lovely car but do these people think they're giving a good enough impression to sell a £20k car? I really don't know how anyone would have the confidence to bid

    Got people's attention though which is the point of advertising after all.

    See I don't even get as far as seeing if the spelling is any good.

    I simply can't read a block of text like that unless I hold a ruler to the screen.

    It must be my age:rolleyes:

    Ebay should be awarding a prize there - it's got to be a record-breaker hasn't it?

    It's probably due to blurred vision caused by looking through a fog of disappointment and mild anger that someone could be so useless at written English.

    I just dismiss those type of adverts straight away.
    I used to see a lot of classifieds on ebay for cars that were way to cheap.
    All similar/but not the same seller - some random letters followed by random numbers.
    I wondnt be suprised if this one is a gangster waiting to take your money having stole the pics from another sale previously.
