I'm sorry if my previous thread seemed to come across as an advert but I did say at the top it wasn't. I did not include any reference to what I was expecting for my car nor did I mention the colour, the bits that have been renewed on it and the bits that might fall off soon! If fact if you review my thread you'll see if anything I was anti-selling it. I stated clearly that i really did not want to sell it privately. All I wished for was advice on whether a main dealer would offer me a better price than one of those private dealers and if anyone could recommend any who seemed to give a fair deal. Please guys just a little advice or some of your experiences. I'm put off ebay by the amount of scammers and time wasters. Really i just want to drive it somewhere let them look at it, give me some cash and walk away. But I don't want to be fleeced. I know roughly what it's both privately and to a dealer. I know I'm not gonna get as much to a dealer but I am prepared to take the hit. I just want to do my best to minimalise it. Please let's not get in to the fine details of my car just help me wave it goodbye with a smile and maybe a tear of sadness as I bid fareful to a friend.
