Posting the adverts free, phoning the buggers up isn't.

Although, car and classic are just as guilty.

Odd how even more of the cost involved with selling has been shifted to the buyer.

For you, Olly or GP, probably quite badly.

The rest of us would have great fun with it.

[Said as someone who would love one but is bitter due about the potential insurance hike.]

That photo highlights an important exception to a rule.

Grass adds to the value of a car, EXCEPT where such grass is the recreation area on a council estate.

Air con needs re-gassing. Do it then, ffs. Otherwise one has to assume the air-con is shagged. Selling for a friend, History needs some research. Worth investigation, for sure, but homework required and caution advised.

Colours are appealing, as are Contours and lack of bootlid adornments. However:

advert said:
hi here we have my freinds m3 evo
"Selling on behalf of a friend". Assume trader.

advert said:
has been used as a family runaround...only covered a couple of thousand miles a year for last few years ,mostly driven by a lady
Men and women can abuse cars, just as both can possess mechanical sympathy. How many family "run arounds" do such low mileage?

advert said:
belive it or not
Whenever I read those words, I don't.

advert said:
has not been touched/ fiddled with in any way
Aside from the addition of side skirts from a coupé.

advert said:
air con needs regasing
Of course it does.

advert said:
no alarm


Oh. That'll help insurance quotes on an M3.

advert said:
no service book but all mots some reciepts no exspence spared when works been done by local garage which can be contacted for proof
Nope, I can't see how you could possibly go wrong here.

It's over 15 years old, ergo usually eligible for classic insurance. Under £300 for me last year. A bit more pending resolution of my first ever NIP. 54 in a 40. Ahem.

Should be do-able for 600-ish IME.
