He offered to give me a deposit last night so I think his offer is genuine.

The offer is genuine for sure. I'd be surprised if he doesn't make it conditional on seeing the car in person and an inspection. As a private buyer he has no protection whatsoever. So he'd be crazy if he doesn't know you and the car, to offer a deposit and a purchase price without any conditions.

But it takes all kinds to make a world....

Deposit subject to PPI and agreeing a price are two separate things.

I'd expect him to want to inspect the car/have it inspected before buying BUT having already agreed a price I'd be inclined to tell him to 'take it or leave it'.

Strangley there was no whine tonight. Maybe I'm hearing things.


The whining might be the brake disc cover rubbing on the disc at low speed. I had that whining noise on mine at low speed, with the cover just needing to be adjusted a fraction to sort. Has been fine for the past 2 years since.

Hi Chris,
£27k offer with the impending work sounds about right to me. I wouldn't go any lower. You may get a thousand more in a couple of months time, but then, something else may need fixing.

I say take his offer.

unfortunately the guy let me down and all my other interest had dried up. I'm toying with accepting 25k, I'm looking towards a v8 m3 now so it would a straight swap almost.
